Black Friday. Cyber Monday. It seems as though everyone wants in on the action, whether it’s waiting in line at a store to snag the latest tech or surfing the web for sales from the comfort of your couch.

Yep – everyone wants the steals and deals offered on Black Friday and, of course, Cyber Monday, too. But, are you aware of the deals and savings that won’t cost you a dime?
