Should I wait for Cyber Monday to buy what I need?

Whether you’re hoping to get a good deal on a household appliance that you need or you want to pick up some tech gift bargains ahead of the holidays, Cyber Monday is an excellent opportunity to save money. The best Cyber Monday deals vary from year to year, but you can always find some impressive discounts on big-name products.

Although you’ll find some deals on the latest items, the biggest Cyber Monday bargains are usually on older models, but these often have only minor differences from their newer counterparts. 

Are Cyber Monday sales separate from Black Friday sales? 

Falling the Monday after Black Friday, you might be wondering if Cyber Monday sales are separate from online Black Friday sales or they’re just rolled into one event. This isn’t a clear-cut situation. Due to their proximity, most online retailers have a joint Black Friday/Cyber Monday event that spans the whole weekend. However, big retailers, like Amazon, will have different deals available on Black Friday and Cyber Monday — so, if an item you’re coveting isn’t discounted on Black Friday, wait until Cyber Monday and you may be pleasantly surprised.

What will go on sale on Cyber Monday? 

You can’t say for sure which products will be discounted on Cyber Monday, but those in the know can make an educated guess based on data from previous years. TVs and other newer, big-ticket items are more commonly discounted on Black Friday, while you’re more likely to find the best deals of small tech, older models and household goods — like coffee makers and blenders — on Cyber Monday, though there’s generally some crossover. You can prepare before the day by adding any products you want that will likely be discounted to your online shopping basket so you can nab them as soon as deals go live. Popular products sell out quickly, so preparing ahead of time will give you a head start.
