If you didn’t get enough of your shopping exploits out during the Black Friday rush this past weekend, then today will be your last and final day to get that big push in. With the recent explosion of Cyber Monday (the online shopping day after Black Friday), places like Best Buy and Amazon are in full swing to give out the best deals possible for the 24-hour sales day.

With Amazon upping the ante by have smaller items on say all day while bigger, expanded items – coined “Lightning Sales” by their timeframe and availability – They are really making up for their lack of Black Friday deals. With things like Band Hero complete set for Wii at an astounding $75, cut back from their original $175 price, along with big releases like Halo: ReachMedal of Honor, and Splatterhouse all at $35, all you have to do is sit in and use your mouse.
