Get your computer, phone or tablet charged and be prepared to be really unproductive at work today. Don't worry, we won't tell your bosses.

It's Cyber Monday.

After offering online deals for days, retailers are rolling out even more promotions today hoping to keep people buying.

Shoppers are expected to spend $6.6 billion on Cyber Monday, up more than 16 percent from a year ago, according to Adobe Analytics, the research arm of software maker Adobe.

More people will be picking up their phones to shop: Web traffic from smartphones and tablets is expected to top desktop computers for the first time this year.

As part of their Cyber Monday deals, Target and Toys R Us are offering 15 percent off most items on their sites. Walmart.com has tripled the amount of items available for sale from last year. And Amazon - which Bain & Co. says is expected to capture 50 percent of all online sales growth - will offer similar deals on its gadgets as it did on Black Friday, but offer new deals on Lego sets and Hasbro games.

The shift to online shopping has been noticeable at some stores since the holiday shopping season kicked off.

One site that can help you check prices before you buy is camelcamelcamel. The site tracks Amazon prices for free to ensure you get the best price before you click order.
