Black Friday has practically become a holiday of its own. Lots of families are not only preparing turkeys during Thanksgiving week, they’re also preparing shopping lists, too. Thankfully, for those people who don’t enjoy the rush and the early hours of Black Friday, there’s Cyber Monday. It’s a cozy, subtle alternative. If Black Friday is a roar, Cyber Monday is a whisper. But, just because it’s calmer and takes place a few days later doesn’t mean it lacks deals.
The most appealing detail regarding Cyber Monday is that, like all online shopping, you can do it from home. Have a cup of tea. Stay in your pajamas. Watch Wheel of Fortune in the background. It’s a relaxing experience, especially compared to Black Friday crowds.
While it is true that you do risk losing out on some of the Black Friday-exclusive bargains, you’ll find even deeper deals on Cyber Monday. Whatever is left over from Black Friday is often discounted further for Cyber Monday.
If you shop Cyber Monday, you’ll also run into last-minute deals, increasingly popular free-shipping offers, and special sales that are exclusive to the Cyber Monday crowd. You won’t, however, run into massive crowds and crazy traffic. For some, that’s the best deal of all.
