What to Buy on Cyber Monday

Posted on 11/22/2010

Most people are well aware of Black Friday, but according to a survey by Lightspeed Research, about one-third of consumers don’t know what Cyber Monday is. If you’re one of those uninformed shoppers here’s a quick lesson on the Monday following Black Friday. It’s a special day when online retailers offer big sales on lots of great stuff so rather than hitting the mall you can tap your keyboard and take care of Christmas shopping. Now for the rest of your lesson: what to buy on Cyber Monday.

Electronics - Cyber Monday is notoriously good for picking up electronics at deep discounts. This year you can expect to find great deals on E-Readers, cell phones and MP3 players. For instance, Amazon will be marking down the Amazon Kindle to $139 on Cyber Monday. Normally this will run you $50 more. And apparently Amazon will also be offering a Panasonic camcorder for $149, regularly $229.

Toys - For some people, visiting a toy store on Black Friday would be worse than having a root canal. For those people, shopping for toys from the comfort of home is invaluable. And if you do it on Cyber Monday you’ll not only save yourself from getting a headache, but you’ll save some money too. Check out sites like Kmart.com, ToysRus.com and Walmart.com for deep toy discounts.

Clothing - You don’t have to hit the mall to get cheap clothes. Just click on over to online retailers like Aeropostale. They’re offering a 30% discount on all online purchases for Cyber Monday. Other retailers that have offered similar Cyber Monday discounts include Urban Outfitters, Banana Republic and Old Navy.

Travel - Even though you may have just returned from a Thanksgiving trip, Cyber Monday can also be a great time to book holiday trips. According to USA Today, If you follow @SanJuanMarriott on Twitter and tweet the phrase “I want to book a #CyberMonday vacation at @SanJuanMarriott” at some point during Cyber Monday you’ll receive an exclusive discount code to use for December travel arrangements. Also, the first ten Epic Facebook fans who book a stay at Epic on Cyber Monday will get a free room upgrade.
