New York's parks office has come up with a Cyber-Monday deal of its own -  the agency is cutting the price of its 3-year Empire Passport. 

The Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, which oversees 180 parks, says the standard price is $165. For online shoppers, it's $130.

Valid from receipt through March 2018, the passport provides unlimited vehicle access to all state parks, nature centers, recreation areas, boat launch sites, arboretums and park preserves.

Connecticut U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal is warning of the "tricks and traps" some advertisers use to try to lure consumers into making purchases on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Connecticut Democrat has scheduled a Friday morning news conference at his Hartford office to highlight what he calls laughable, ludicrous and deceptive ads that consumers should be on the lookout for as the holiday shopping season begins.

Today is Cyber Monday.

Did you take advantage of Black Friday sales? Cyber Monday deals? Both? Neither?

Why or why not?
