The so-called "Cyber Monday" of the summer continues on Tuesday and there are ways to make sure you're getting your money's worth with whatever you buy.

When the deals are all over, especially on Amazon's Prime Day, it's also a target for those who are trying to scam you or steal your information. To ensure you're keeping your information safe and getting a real bang for your buck, you can follow some of these tips.

-Only access Amazon from your browser. Don't click on anything in an e-mail because that may look like it takes you directly to Amazon, but it could take you to a fake site that resembles the real Amazon.

-Take a look at where the e-mail is coming from. If it's coming from someone with an @Amazon.com e-mail, it's coming from Amazon.

-Read the product descriptions. If there is a typo, it might be fake.
