WASHINGTON ( TheStreet) -- Suckers wait until Cyber Monday to start their holiday shopping. Savvy, bargain-seeking consumers are already using their keyboards and touchscreens to winnow away wish lists.Roughly 35% of holiday shoppers will spend at least a portion of the holiday season shopping online, according to the NPD Group. While that number is down from the 37% that went online last year, the National Retail Federation's Holiday Spending Survey suggests it's an underestimate and that the real number is closer to 44%. While many of those shoppers will hit mainstream mainstays such as AOL (AOL), Yahoo (YHOO - Get Report), Microsoft's (MSFT - Get Report) Bing and Google (GOOG - Get Report) to search for their holiday gifts, the pros head to such sites as PriceGrabber.com for the deepest discounts.
