When does Cyber Monday begin?
Cyber Monday begins on 2nd December, so the Monday immediately following Thanksgiving. It’ll only last for one day, so you’ll need to grab the deals pretty quickly otherwise they’ll disappear sharpish. It’s essentially your last chance to grab something for cheap before Christmas.
What’s the difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday?
When it comes down to it, there’s not a great deal of difference between the two. They’re both big sales where you’ll find plenty of consoles, games, and accessories at some of the best prices you’ll see all year providing you are smart about hunting down the proper bargains.
However, Black Friday now lasts for over a week (despite the name) as retailers have gradually stretched their deals out over the course of a few days, with the Friday offering the greatest discounts of them all.
Meanwhile, Cyber Monday lasts for roughly a day or so, and all of the deals are exclusively online. However, the deals available could very well be some of the best yet. Retailers will want to shift the remainder of their stock, so expect them to lower their prices considerably to entice people into spending their cash.
