If you're ready to save money and get a head start on your Christmas shopping, you need to check out these Cyber Monday deals. Scheduled faithfully each year on the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, Cyber Monday is Black Friday’s second act, offering greater access to more offers and discounts. And, as if shopping couldn’t get any easier, we’ve done the legwork and gathered all these amazing deals for you. Get your holiday list ready, put your feet up and skip the crowds thanks to these Cyber Monday offers.
There's one simple rule that will help you make the most of the many Cyber Monday offers you'll come across: Prioritize your purchases—know what you want, what you need and what you're willing to spend. Create a list or two; if you’ve been holding out throughout the year and didn't get everything you needed on Black Friday, Cyber Monday discounts are bound to be as good or better than deals you might find any other time of the year. Also remember: it's the end of the year and the holiday season; give yourself a break and indulge in some of the things you've had your eye on for a while.
Electronics have long been holiday shopping staples, so if you're in the market for computers, video games, televisions and other digital devices, you'll be spoiled for choice. Gaming consoles, games and TVs will be abundant—with retailers rolling out the biggest screens they can find for the latter—but you'll also find Cyber Monday deals for other accessories like speakers, headphones, portable media players and phones. You'll also have plenty of clothing and apparel choices. In addition to classics like sweaters, scarves and jackets, you'll also see huge savings on footwear and jewelry. Some stores will offer varying discounts based on product categories, while others may offer sweeping savings across the entire store.
If computers and electronics are on your list, keep an eye on the big retailers. Year after year, Amazon and Walmart have offered massive discounts on the season's most popular products. Depending on what's on your list, these big players may offer one-stop shopping. If you're hunting specifically for electronics, check out what Best Buy, Newegg and Fry's have on offer. If it's a wardrobe update you're after, you won't go wrong with Kohl's, Old Navy, Target and Macy's. If you're looking for something on the unconventional side, such as restaurant gift certificates, movie tickets, bowling, transportation or a travel getaway, see what Groupon has available. No matter where you shop, remember to also keep an eye out for Cyber Monday coupons to further slash the totals you see at checkout.
