What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber monday started as online retailers own day. Today the difference between physical shops and online retailers deal periods has almost vanished entirely. But for the person that wants to find a good deal you can actually have more luck on Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday always happens the Monday after Black Friday. It is no coincidence that they happen so close together. Cyber Monday is the online retailers answer to Black Friday which was primarily physicals shops sales period from the beginning.

The expression was coined by the American tradeorgansation NRF foundation year 2005. A few years later the phenomena started to spread outside of the US and has grown exponentially the last few years. It is still not nearly as known as Black Friday, but if you are looking for a good deal you should keep track of Cyber Monday prices as well.

To entice online shoppers to spend their money on Cyber Monday a few shops lower their prices even more than what they did on Black Friday.

Cyber Monday primarily focuses on tech products, hence the name.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday has come to blend more and more for each year that passes, but Cyber Monday differentiates from Black Friday in that way that they are still only for online retailer where Black Friday is for both.

Another thing that differs between the two spending days is that Cyber Monday is contained to one day whereas Black Friday has expanded to cover almost a full week.
