When is Cyber Monday 2021?


The next Cyber Monday event is on November 29, 2021. This is the Monday after Black Friday, for which we have also made a similar article. Of course, this is not to say that all of the best deals will be posted on Monday, as in previous deals we saw great deals throughout the whole weekend.

Cyber Monday or Black Friday: Which one is better?


What are the differences between Cyber Monday and Black Friday?


While Cyber Monday started as a separate event, in the last couple of years it has become more of an extension shopping day to Black Friday. The key difference between the two events is that Cyber Monday has always been more focused on tech in particular, while Black Friday is a general sale event on everything you could think of.

Cyber Monday and Black Friday: Which has the better deals?


One cannot be certain which will have the biggest discounts, as these predictions are almost impossible to make. However, Black Friday deals often offer bigger savings. But Cyber Monday’s focus on tech is an advantage over Black Friday, as you have much better chances of finding the exact device you want on sale because it usually offers a bigger number of deals.

Should I wait for Cyber Monday over Black Friday?


If you’re looking for a product, in particular, that is not on sale during Black Friday, and you don’t want to compromise by changing your choice, then you should wait for Cyber Monday. Chances of you finding the device you desire on Cyber Monday are higher.

Where are the best Cyber Monday deals?


The best deals on Cyber Monday are on Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. These usually offer the biggest discounts and the biggest choice of items on sale.

But other American stores have their own Cyber Monday sales too. Previously we’ve seen campaigns from Apple and Samsung’s online stores. Retailers like B&H photo and Kohl’s have their great deals as well. Wireless carriers Verizon and AT&T are also expected to have great offers on smartphones.
