What is Cyber Monday?
For years we’ve heard the term “Cyber Monday,” but what is it exactly? Black Friday isn’t the only day known for its super savings during the holiday season. The Monday following Thanksgiving has been known as Cyber Monday for a number of years now. It gives online retailers a chance to have their own exclusive deals following the mad rush to the door that was Black Friday.
Many people opt to participate in Cyber Monday because they don’t have to leave their home and deal with any of that last-minute shopping madness.
Cyber Monday officially begins the Monday following Black Friday and Thanksgiving. In the past, Cyber Monday has been known for a single day of sales, but as time progresses this shopping holiday is becoming a shopping week.
Based on Cyber Monday’s of old and recent advertisements, here are our predictions for some of the best deals you’ll find this holiday season:
Amazon will continue many of the same deals they had for Black Friday. Amazon Echo devices, Fire HDTV, Amazon Fire HD Tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and other Amazon smart-home accessories will have a discount.
Walmart will try to fill the gaps that Amazon is missing with Google Home devices, Samsung and Vizio 4K TVs, laptops and home appliances.
TVs will be at their lowest prices of the year, but make sure to check an online Cyber Monday ad or two for even more savings.
Huge price drops on laptops, Chromebooks and Lenovo computers will continue, and we may even see some laptop deals not featured during Black Friday. Some stores have even already released a Cyber Monday ad.
Mobile carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon will continue the top deals on smartphones and plans we saw very early on, most likely on the new iPhone XS and iPhone XR.
Video game consoles like the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox will continue to have some steep discounts.
Smartwatches and other great wearables will be on sale much like the Apple Watch was during Cyber Monday 2017.
