Even though Black Friday has always traditionally been the biggest shopping day of the year, experts predict that Cyber Monday 2013 could offer even more discounted items and online door buster deals.

First coined in 2005 by Shop.org, Cyber Monday originated after retailers noticed a growing trend of people shopping online the Monday following Thanksgiving.

A look at statistics from the past few years reveals that when it comes to things like clothing and shoes, Cyber Monday deals are often better than the ones offered on Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day.

"On the past two Cyber Mondays, we saw an average of 45 percent more clothing deals than on Black Friday, and about 53 percent more deals than on Thanksgiving," CSMonitor.com reported. "We also saw about 50 percent more shoe deals on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday or Thanksgiving."

According to IBM Digital Analytics, Cyber Monday sales from 2012 rose 30 percent from 2011 and are expected to jump again this year.

Even Cyber Monday tech discounts give Black Friday deals a run for their money. Last year, Walmart sold Samsung 55-inch HD televisions for $1,000 less than the original listing price, according to i4u.com's recap of sales.

Other sales included 50 percent off digital cameras, DVDs for less than $2, up to 70 percent off name-brand headphones, and diamond stud earrings starting at $39.99.
