What is Cyber Monday?

Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday started life across the pond, where the weekend after Thanksgiving has long been associated with bargain-filled festive shopping. Recent years have actually seen Cyber Monday beginning to steal Black Friday’s thunder.

As more and more savvy shoppers head online to nab the best deals without having to contend with the crowds, Cyber Monday has grown into America’s biggest shopping day. Last year stateside shoppers spent a staggering $3.45billion on Cyber Monday, according to Adobe Digital. So, it’s no surprise that Cyber Monday 2017 looks set to be even bigger. The UK isn’t far behind. Last year, shoppers spent £1.23bn online on Black Friday and £6.45bn over the Cyber Weekend.

When is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday always falls on the first Monday after U.S. Thanksgiving, which means Cyber Monday 2017 will be on Monday 27th November.

The tradition emerged when retailers in America began to notice that the big post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend had started to stretch into the following week. Even though most shoppers had to return to work on the Monday, many continued their shopping spree online. As more and more online retailers decided to recreate the sales excitement of Black Friday, Cyber Monday quickly emerged as an even bigger shopping phenomenon.
