When is this Cyber Monday?

What is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are international sales-events where retailers cut their prices and put their fall stock on clearance to prepare for the winter shopping season. since it was conceived in the old days before the internet, Black Friday used to refer primarily to brick-and-mortar sales. But as online shopping became more popular, companies introduced Cyber Monday to achieve the same result: more sales.
Super Saturday vs. Black Friday: Which one is best?
Super Saturday (December 18) tends to be one-day events and flash sales that are more targeted to last-minute buyers so the cuts you might get better sale prices, but the bigger-ticket items may be sold out. Black Friday, on the other hand, could be useful for people who like to prepare in advance for their end-of-year shopping. In 2019, Super Saturday sales beat Black Friday by 10% and became the biggest single day in the United States retail history, according to Customer Growth Partners.
As suggested by many retail experts, Super Saturday could be a better opportunity for deals if you’re willing to take the risk of not finding what you were looking for, or just don’t have a specific product in mind. For big retailers, this is their last chance in the year to sell as much as they can, so they often invest in more aggressive promotions right before or after Christmas.
How can I save more money on Black Friday?
Always plan ahead:
- Make your Christmas list of everyone you think you’ll be buying for.
- Write down some ideas of what you think would make great gifts for them.
- Budget for how much you’re willing to spend on each person or item.
- Shop around and compare prices so you know you’re not spending more than you need to.
- Stick to your budget!
How can I avoid Black Friday scams?
The best way to avoid scams is to avoid impulse-shopping. If you see a deal you like, shop around other sites to see if you can get them for a cheaper price then track its historical price on a site like camelcamelcamel.com to see if you really are getting a bang for your buck.
Boxing Day vs. Black Friday: Which one is best?
Boxing Day is an excellent time to sweep some home and Christmas decorations for next year, as their prices tend to go rock-bottom immediately and get cleared out pretty soon after the holidays, so if you’re looking for some additional Christmas decorations boxing day’s definitely the time to grab ’em!
