Cyber Monday is finally here! It's a great day to get lots of savings and my site is a great place to start.

But while you scour the Web for sweet savings today, you should know that thieves are also on the hunt for great deals - on your credit card information.

There's no way to tell if your card information is up for sale at these sites, but Krebs suggests shopping for everything online with caution. Assume your card has been compromised and opt to use gift cards or options other than your ATM or debit card.
