Circular of the Week

This week, Mooresville, N.C.-based Lowe’s wants customers to know that time is running out for savings. Equipped with a huge countdown timer, the big blue retailer is giving customers an exact breakdown of how long the Cyber Monday deals will last. More than 125 items are included in the online-only deals, including some carry-overs from Black Friday, as well as a few unique to Monday.

Hot Deals

• Werner 13-ft. aluminum multi-purpose ladder for $59; • Kobalt 227-piece socket set for $99; and • Black & Decker cordless 12-volt mini canister vacuum cleaner for $39.99.

The Skinny: Shipping

The problem with Cyber deals has always been shipping -- if you have to pay for it, you’re not really saving any money. Lowe’s solved that conundrum for its customers by offering free shipping on all Cyber Monday orders with no minimum purchase. There are weight and size restrictions, but Lowe’s is offering ship-to-store options on items that exceed the limits.
