ETNA, OHIO (WCMH) — Bouncing back from the four-day holiday weekend might be a struggle for some, but an easy way to get back into the work week might be doing a little shopping from behind your desk.

Cyber Monday is tomorrow, and according to Forbes, it will be the biggest shopping day in history. Amazon will have more than 75,000 deals that will change regularly throughout the day, and Target will offer 15 percent off storewide, although there are some exclusions.

If you’re looking for a television, Best Buy has huge deals, including a 50-inch, 4K set for under $400.

Kohl’s is breaking out the deals online, too. And, if you’re looking for toys, retailer Toys ‘R Us is offering free shipping if you spend $19 or more.

Cyber Monday has only been around for a little more than a decade, but the ever-growing online shopping phenomena has not only allowed for more people to shop from home, but also for some to earn some extra cash. Earlier this month, UPS announced they’ll hire 500 seasonal workers in Columbus. The United States Postal Service will add about 100 seasonal jobs and expects a 12 percent growth from the 4.5 billion packages it shipped last year.
