When is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday occurs the following Monday after Black Friday every year. In 2020, the online-heavy shopping event arrives on Monday, November 30. Typically, it begins at 12 a.m. on Monday. Of course, Cyber Monday sales are going on right now on Saturday and Sunday in the lead up to the event.
As a continuation of sorts of Black Friday, Cyber Monday gives you another opportunity to save on tech, home goods, clothing, and other deals that you might’ve missed while recovering from Thanksgiving dinner.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday began as the online version of Black Friday, where online retailers offered big discounts to match their brick-and-mortar counterparts. Now, Cyber Monday is the biggest shopping day of the year, surpassing even Black Friday in terms of revenue and sales.
The “holiday” was created in 2005 as the online version of the brick-and-mortar-focused Black Friday. Previously, the main differentiation between Black Friday and Cyber Monday was that Black Friday focused on in-store sales and Cyber Monday on online sales. But as shopping habits have increasingly favored the internet, amplified by the pandemic, shoppers can look forward to a very online-focused Cyber Monday and Black Friday.
Cyber Monday offers a great opportunity to save on all your holiday gifts.
How long do Cyber Monday sales last?
Though Cyber Monday sales once only took place on Monday, we’ve been seeing them extend to longer and longer durations, with more than a few lasting until the rest of the week. For instance, Wayfair’s Cyber Monday deals will take place all from November 30 through December 4.
“Doorbuster” Cyber Monday markdowns are often restricted to the day and available stock. When we know the end date of a deal, we’ll list it next to the deal.
What’s better, Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
With most Americans sticking to online shopping this year, the debate on which shopping holiday is particularly moot. Both events will be held predominantly online, and more than a few deals overlap. In fact, many Black Friday deals become Cyber Monday deals when the dates change.
If possible, shoppers should shop both holidays. We’ve seen different products receive better discounts on each day, and the deals that each retailer offers will vary.
Generally speaking, consumers shopping for big-ticket items, such as laptops, TVs, and kitchen appliances, can expect more opportunities on Black Friday. But for shoppers looking for last year’s models, smart home gadgets, digital subscriptions, and gift cards will likely find more luck during Cyber Monday.
What should I buy during Cyber Monday?
If a retailer offers Black Friday deals, it’s a near guarantee that it will offer Cyber Monday deals, too. Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are some noteworthy retailers that we know will participate in the shopping event.
We will likely see massive discounts on some of our favorite direct-to-consumer products during Cyber Monday, such as retail startups like Leesa and Brooklinen. For some, Cyber Monday (or Cyber Week) will be one of the few times of the year when their products see major markdowns.
Where can I find Cyber Monday ads?
Shoppers in-the-know eagerly await Black Friday and Cyber Monday ads to help guide their Black Friday game plan. Typically, storefronts like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart release their previews early-November or alongside their Black Friday ads.
Here are the most important ad scans currently available:
- Best Buy: While the electronics retailer has yet to announce any deals for Cyber Monday, shoppers can peruse Best Buy’s Black Friday Ad here. For that intend on shopping the discounts early, there are deals already available from the ad.
- Walmart: To find the ad scan, first find your local Walmart via the local directory. Once you get to the “Store Overview” page, find the “Weekly Ad” section.
Will there be Cyber Monday shipping delays?
Shipping delays and shopping holidays are inextricably linked, and this year is no different. Experts suggest that consumers may see low inventory and shipping problems, during Cyber Monday, Black Friday, and the weeks following.
To help you avoid the shipping crunch and get your stuff sooner, several retailers, including Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, offer in-store pickup and contactless curbside pickup. This means shoppers can grab their orders at a nearby location, provided that the retailer has it in stock.
