Somewhere around 122 million people are expected to do some online shopping on Cyber Monday.

Chances are you can find some great deals when shopping online.  But don't forget to check out the local stores in and around Sioux Falls.  Many of them are posting deals on their websites and facebook pages.

Also remember to shop safely online.  PR Newswire has these great tips for safe online shopping:

1.  Don't let websites save your information for future purchases.  Your chances of being hacked go way up if you do.  Sometimes websites get compromised and don't know it for months.  So it's even risky with websites you think you can trust.

2.  Be careful about emails that include coupon codes or links to deals.  Especially if it's from a website you're not familiar with.  And just to be safe, you should copy and paste any coupon codes into the actual website.  Don't click a link in your email to use them.

3.  Never use your work email as your username on store websites.  And you should never use the same password you use to sign in to your work email.  If the wrong person gets your work email and password, your company could get hacked.

4.  Look out for fake package-tracking emails over the next few weeks.  Experts think there might be a flood of them next month.  And if you click the links, hackers could get access to your computer or your financial info.
