Besides Thanksgiving, Black Friday is also something most Americans find themselves being very thankful for! And why not? You have deals and discounts on almost every item.

With Cyber Monday, A.K.A. the online shopping holiday, right around the corner, I’ve gathered the best tech and tools to be thankful for this holiday season.

Cyber Monday, Thanksgiving's lesser known holiday, actually can earn you more savings than Black Friday! Many people say the best part of the Thanksgiving tradition is being around family, friends and delicious food. But let’s be real, we should all be thankful for the technology that is saving us time and money on America’s favorite days: Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Who has time to sift through the piles of Penny Savers you get in the mail for good deals? The Flipp app is an all-in-one flyer, coupon and savings tracker for your smartphone. The app lets you search for coupons for a specific store, item or brand. Flip can help you save as much as 70 percent on many items.

PriceBlink is a price comparison app that you can add onto Chrome, Firefox or Safari. This means when you find that perfect electric wine bottle opener, it will automatically scan through over 4,000 merchants to find you the best price. Now that’s something to cheers to.

Honey is just as efficient as worker bees, but it’s actually just a Chrome extension. It scours the internet to find you discount codes, coupons, free shipping and more that you can apply right as you’re at checkout. And now, here’s a bonus!
