Cyber Monday was once the after party of sales shopping on the Monday following Black Friday, where retailers slash prices on goods online so consumers could get a great deal or discount.
Starting in the US, Black Friday was just a normal holiday after Thanks Giving, where stores would drop prices, giving people the chance to do their Christmas shopping. However, Cyber Monday was a chance for online retailers to drop their prices in a bid to make the most of those sitting back at their desks at work who wanted to continue shopping.
It appears these days that stores have made deals available across the whole four days both in store and online making this the biggest shopping event of the year across the world.
It will be interesting to see what the figures for Cyber Monday say, are people spending more on Black Friday than Cyber Monday?
Earlier Cyber Monday giants, Amazon unveiled many of its Cyber Monday deals but there is still plenty of time to shop for a great bargain. Stores including Argos, Tesco’s and many others have also slashed the prices on many items online.
