When is Cyber Monday 2022?
Cyber Monday falls on November 28, 2022 — as always, the Monday after Thanksgiving, which in turn is always the third Thursday of November.
How long does Cyber Monday last?
Cyber Monday is a 24-hour online shopping event that’s regarded as an extension of Black Friday sales. It was originally created by businesses to encourage shoppers to purchase online, as opposed to going in-store.
What does Cyber Monday stand for?
It’s a term businesses use when referring to the Monday following the Thanksgiving weekend. It’s the biggest day for online sales, and the second-biggest shopping day of the year after Black Friday. “Cyber Monday” was coined by Shop.org — the online arm of the National Retail Federation — in 2005.
How is Cyber Monday different from Black Friday?
In 2022, there is really not a big difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday. But, at one point it was the online version of the in-store Black Friday deals. Some Cyber Monday deals will be better, but don’t just hold out for them. Focus on the categories that don’t sell out on Black Friday — clothes, tools, kitchen gadgets and small appliances. Also important: Some retailers restock electronics and tech that sold out on Black Friday, making Cyber Monday your “second chance” to score on those popular items.
Is everything on sale on Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday tends to encompass more deals in a broader range of categories, so identifying Cyber Monday’s strongest categories in advance will be the key to shopping success. Focus on what you missed out on during Black Friday. Black Friday tech and appliance deals — AirPods, Apple watches, TVs, KitchenAid appliances — often repeat themselves on Cyber Monday. You can also look for best-of-the-year savings on small kitchen appliances, tools, clothes and shoes, beauty products, books and movies.
Which stores have good Cyber Monday sales?
Nearly every retailer offers some sort of discount, but some stores’ deals are better than others. Historically, Target, Nordstrom Rack, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Home Depot, Best Buy and Amazon have offered some of the biggest savings.
Will inflation impact Cyber Monday this year?
Last year, more than 180 million people shopped over Thanksgiving weekend, and they spent a total of $10.7 billion, just $100 million shy of the record set in 2020 — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year, according to a Rakuten survey. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday or Cyber Monday itself to maximize savings.
