iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — It’s all about brick-and-mortar stores on Black Friday, but Cyber Monday’s online deals are often just as good — especially for hotels.
For those that feel like avoiding family debates and in-laws for the holidays next year and taking a vacation instead, this may be the time to plan ahead.
ABC News combed through hundreds of Cyber Monday hotel deals sent to us for consideration. The criteria: the discount had to be at least 50 percent and the restrictions minimal. But book quickly — these deals will be gone faster than than a jet plane.
