I logged on to score some great deals ... but all I got was some major disappointment.
Momlogic's Julie: I got up bright and early this morning to get a price break on some holiday gifts. It was "Cyber Monday," and I planned to get in on the specials.
My first stop? Build a Bear for some $5 bears.
After it taking an eternity to load the bears into my basket, I found myself unable to check out.
Here is the error I received:
An error has occurred.
Sorry. An error occurred on the page you requested.
<< Go back to try again.
Of course, when I went back to try again, I was told the "Den was under maintenance" (bear joke, I guess) and I should try again later.
Now I was off to American Girl to nab some half-price doll accessories.
After clicking on their Cyber Monday landing page, I got the following message:

When I called the 1-800 number, it was busy ... after the fifth time, I gave up.
So far, Cyber Monday has been a major bust for me. How about you?
