Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Consumers haven't necessarily missed out on cyber deals.

This year, a number of major retailers have extended their deals for Cyber Week.

Fatwallet.com reports Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy have permanently renamed their Monday sales "Cyber Week."

Hundreds of other e-commerce stores are expected to join the trend.

Giving Tuesday
Now that you've bought gifts for yourself and loved ones for the holiday season, now is the time to think of others.

It's Giving Tuesday.

The event's co-founder, Henry Timms, says that can include donating money or time to a favorite charitable group. But there's a new spin this year.

The event wants people to post what they call an "unselfie" on social media.
Instead of taking a selfie, share a picture of you doing something useful for others or a picture of a cause that matters to you.

You can search Twitter using #unselfie to see how others are lending a helping hand across the US.

Snow Day
Parents across the Northland are sending us pictures of their kids enjoying a snowy day off from school.

Morgan from Duluth's Lakeside built her own Frosty the Snowman as the snow kept falling Monday night.

Cara sent us this picture saying they are Texans who moved to Minnesota and are enjoying their first snow day.

If you have pictures of the snow in your area, we'd like to see them!
You can send them to producer@kbjr.com
