What to expect for Cyber Monday 2019

When does Cyber Monday Start?

This year, Cyber Monday is taking place a whole lot later than usual, falling on Monday, December 2. Fortunately, most retailers have been kicking off the sales earlier and earlier each year, so you don’t have to wait until then to start shopping. Many Black Friday 2019 deals are already in full swing, including deals of the day and lightning deals from Amazon, as well as a generous number of offerings from Costco that will begin on November 7.

Target’s Black Friday deals are still under wraps, but you can sign up via email to stay in the loop. Walmart is also trailing behind when it comes to announcing its Black Friday plans, however, if you sign up for their Early Access email program, you’ll be among the first to hear of any updates. If you’re looking for the top tech deals, you’ll want to watch out for the Best Buy Cyber Monday ads, which haven’t debuted just yet.

Who participates in Cyber Monday?

Most of the biggest retailers have gotten on-board with Cyber Monday, including Target, Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and even Costco. While Black Friday originally started as an in-store only event before eventually expanding to include online deals, too, Cyber Monday has always been a dedicated holiday for online shoppers looking to get their holiday gifts squared away early without having to leave home.

What are the best things to buy on Cyber Monday?

Chances are good that you will find worthwhile deals on most of the items that fall on your shopping wishlist, whether that means a brand new laptop, the latest Apple products, workout gear, or even your favorite beauty and skincare products. Usually, you’ll find the biggest savings with tech products that normally come with a high price tag. Amazon, in particular, has become known for offering some of the steepest discounts on many of its own tech devices, including the Echo Show 5, the Fire TV Stick 4K, and the Kindle Paperwhite. That means that if these gadgets are normally out of your budget, Cyber Monday is your chance to snag them at a much more affordable price.

In addition to tech, toys and apparel are also a big lure for Amazon shoppers, and the retailer reported that it sold more than 18 million toys and 13 million fashion pieces all together on Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year. In fact, after last Cyber Monday 2018, Amazon announced that it had been its biggest shopping day to date.
