What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is now one of the biggest shopping event in the United States (U.S.), putting Black Friday in the shade. Both are big sales that mean big savings, helping to cut the cost of festive shopping. While it may have started as an American shopping phenomenon, it’s now hopped the pond and become a major bargain-packed shopping date dubbed Cyber Monday UK. It’s a day of huge online discounts and deals that savvy internet shoppers are making a regular date in their calendars.

When is Cyber Monday?

This year Cyber Monday falls on Monday 28th November - the Monday after Black Friday. Black Friday always falls the day after Thanksgiving, when everyone traditionally has the day off in the U.S. and starts buying their Christmas gifts. Retailers noticed that when people went back to work on the Monday, it didn’t stop them continuing their Christmas shopping online. Cyber Monday was born, with retailers recreating the real-world sales frenzy of Black Friday online. In fact, Cyber Monday sales are now bigger than Black Friday sales in the U.S.
