As the hoopla behind Black Friday starts to wind down, stores are stepping up efforts to keep shoppers excited with cyber Monday deals.

It's billed as the official start of the online holiday shopping season, but some stores are already shelling out big post-Thanksgiving discounts online.

Retailers, like Wal-Mart and Amazon, are extending their deals into the full week.

Others are offering special deals for followers and friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Retail experts estimate sales from Monday alone will reach about $2 billion.
