Prime Day, Black Friday or even the Chinese Singles Day – there is certainly no shortage of discount campaigns from various (online) retailers in 2020. As part of Cyber Week around the world-famous and popular Black Friday, Cyber Monday will take place again. It immediately follows the bargain Friday and is also one of the busiest days of the year. Read below what you need to know about the pre-Christmas shopping event on Cyber Monday.
When is Cyber Monday 2020?
Cyber Monday always takes place after the weekendthe previous Black Friday. This year it means Cyber Monday on the last day of November, on November 30th, 2020.
What is Cyber Monday?
The concept of Cyber Monday comes from the USA. Black Friday is held there after the popular Thanksgiving festival. This was brought into being by brick-and-mortar retail, so online retail responded with Cyber Monday, which follows Black Friday after the weekend. Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is a day on which numerous (online) retailers organize discount campaigns, whether on the Internet or in stores. The chosen time certainly plays into the cards of the retailers, because a few weeks before Christmas, customers are looking for Christmas gifts for their loved ones.
How long is Cyber Monday?
Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is a single day. However, traders drag out the bargain hunt by posting offers both before and after. Online giant Amazon embeds Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the similar-sounding Cyber Week and thus extends the discount battle to a week from November 23rd. until November 30th, 2020. Cyber Week ends with Cyber Monday. However, Amazon started early Black Friday deals in early November this year (you can find some offers here).
How does Cyber Monday work?
The way the sales-boosting discount day works is very simple. Various (online) retailers choose products that they give a discount. These can be very different shops such as Douglas, Otto, Media Markt, H&M or Amazon. Depending on the range, you will find different product categories and products on offer on Cyber Monday, from the Playstation from Sony to electric toothbrushes from Oral-B.
Tip: Bargain hunts like Cyber Monday tempt you to make spontaneous purchases. There’s nothing wrong with that either, but that way you can get rid of money faster than you would like. If you create wish lists (shopping lists) in the online shops of your choice before Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can see directly whether these products have got a deal or not and can shop specifically.
What Cyber Monday offers will there be?
The exact offers and participating brands remain officially secret. So one can only guess which product categories and manufacturers will get promising deals. What is certain, however, is that there is a large selection in the various online shops every year, so that every customer should actually find the right product. Online retailer Amazon has already started and is currently promoting early Black Friday offers. If you are interested, you can have a look around until the start of Cyber Week on November 23, 2020. However, the best deals are only expected at the start of Cyber Week. Therefore, at this point, too, make a personal wish list at the online shop of your choice and watch the bargains.
