Latinos love a good deal.

Probably some of the most embarrassing experiences of my early adolescent life involved going shopping with my Peruvian mother, a woman who views pretty much any transaction as negotiable.  That lady adamantly trying to get a discount on an iPod at Best Buy? That would be my mom. The woman haggling at Nordstrom like there’s no tomorrow, with zero regard for the fact that their prices are fixed? Yup, my mom. Every time she comes home from a store it’s like an episode of The Price is Right in my house: various family members get rounded up and forced to guess how much she paid for things, so that she can scoff at us and announce a price at least 35% lower than whatever we guessed.

As mortifying as this was in my teenage days, I have since come to respect it and love it. And so, in homage to my mom’s deal-finding prowess, we bring you some Cyber Monday deals to look out for today. Side note to marketers: nobody is really using the word “cyber” these days guys. Unless they’re referring to the chat room days of yore, which is what I definitely thought Cyber Monday was about at first. Anyway. Without further ado, checkout the deals below! We’ll be updating as more get announced (or sold out…)
