Cyber shopping sprees for the whole family

Vacation: You can capture terrific discounts on flights, hotels, and cruises. Maybe you'll find that dream vacation within reach! Look on Orbitz, Travelocity, Hotels.com, Disney, and similar sites.

A final tip: As the packages arrive, open them up, verify the contents, and keep track of what you've received. Trust me; there's nothing worse than realizing at the last minute a special gift didn't make it.

Will you be staying home and hitting online for your holiday shopping this year? What tips (or snafus!) have you run into?
