Cyber Monday 2023 is set to take place on November 27, closely following Black Friday on November 24. For those seeking tech deals, both dates are significant, and early discounts typically begin in mid-October, as reported by Adobe’s 2023 shopping forecast.
These discounts start with an average of 5-8 percent off, gradually deepening to 12-20 percent off around November 1, and further reducing to 35 percent off in the week leading to Black Friday.
Contrary to the belief that Cyber Monday deals may surpass those on Black Friday, both events generally feature deals of similar quality across a range of categories.
While some attempt to distinguish the two events, with Black Friday often associated with big-ticket items for personal use, and Cyber Monday having a more gift-oriented vibe, the overall deal quality is comparable.
It’s advisable to shop early, especially for in-demand items, as Cyber Monday deals often continue from Black Friday, and popular products may sell out quickly. In recent years, Apple items, TVs, laptops, and consoles have experienced high demand, resulting in sellouts before Cyber Monday.
What online stores have the best deals?
While it’s not common for deals to sell out rapidly, there have been instances of better deals on laptops, Apple products, and consoles selling out within hours.
Major retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart usually offer extensive Cyber Monday sales, featuring a wide range of discounted items. However, other non-tech retailers, including Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Staples, also run significant sales covering diverse products from office furniture to clothing.
Specialized retailers such as B&H Photo, Samsung, and DJI are valuable for specific needs. Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are recommended for checking the juiciest tech deals, considering their large sales volume and substantial price cuts.
Contrary to the perception that Cyber Monday might be too late for good deals, it is, in fact, a prime opportunity with the potential for more and better-quality deals compared to Black Friday.
