Black Friday is well in the rear-view mirror and that means our shopping focus is now firmly zeroed in on Cyber Monday. The online sales event now matches Black Friday in deals, specials, savings and more. Due to this year’s abbreviated holiday shopping season many retailers are extending Cyber Monday into a week long event. Below is a list of the best pre-announced Cyber Monday deals, but we fully expect a steady stream of new deals to pop up during the course of the day. Follow 9to5Toys for the latest deals: Twitter, RSS Feed, Facebook, Google+. Keep in mind that all deals are subject to availability and could change at any moment.

It looks like Best Buy saved the best for after Black Friday. This weekend, Best Buy will give a $10 per $100 spent in store credit for orders ordered on-line and picked up in store (up to $50). That gives you $40 store credit on the base model iPad Air or $50 on bigger ones. iPad Minis priced starting at $249 are eligible for $20-$50 of store credit yielding an effective price of $229, the lowest we’ve seen.
The deal works on anything spent at Best Buy and is a great way to get people in the store with significant savings in hand.
It might not be as good as the $0 offer available through some of the smaller regional carriers, but if you want a discount on a new iPhone 5s this weekend from one of the big guys this might be the best deal we see. Best Buy just let us know it’s offering the iPhone 5s on the usual two-year contract for $75 off. That puts it at $125 instead of the usual $199 up-front cost of the device, and the deal is good for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. That’s the price of the 16GB model, but the deal also extends to the 32GB model for $225, and the 64GB model for $325.
If you’d rather go with T-Mobile, the carrier currently has a $0 down deal on iPhones, but that won’t really save you much on the cost of the device. The monthly instalment plan is $27 a month instead of the usual $20, so you’ll still pay off the cost of your device after two years. Still a great way to get an iPhone for $0 down if you’re a T-Mobile customer or into its no-contract plans. Walmart seems to have the only decent discount on the iPhone 5c at $45 ($30 off) on-contract.
Best Buy’s iPhone deal will last today and tomorrow only. The company also just announced it’s offering $50 off the white and space gray iPad mini. Read more
