Starwood Hotels & Resorts is offering Cyber Monday deals for discounts at some 60 resorts including the Westin Maui.  An email promotion from the resort offers savings of up to 35% off for stays from January 1 through April 30, 2011 if booked by December 3rd.

Among the store chains in Hawaii offering Cyber Monday deals include Borders and Costco.

The National Retail Federation also reports more shoppers visited stores and websites over the Black Friday weekend, and spent more, than a year ago.  Their survey shows 212 million shoppers visited stores and websites over the Black Friday weekend, up from 195 million last year.  The average shopper spent $365.34 this year with total spending estimated at $45 billion, that according to the NRF.
