What are the best Cyber Monday deals this 2021?

After Thanksgiving comes Black Friday, and after Black Friday comes Cyber Monday. It can be tough to keep up with all the different holiday shopping events, but knowing when to look out for Cyber Monday deals can save you time and money. 

Once you know when Cyber Monday is, you might want to know what kinds of deals and offers to expect. Keep in mind that sales often start on Black Friday and carry through the weekend until the end of Cyber Monday.

When is Cyber Monday 2021?

Cyber Monday is always on the Monday after Black Friday. In turn, Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving, so just remember that Cyber Monday is the Monday following Thanksgiving. In 2021, Cyber Monday falls on November 29. 

What is Cyber Monday? 

Cyber Monday was originally invented to boost online sales on the Monday after Black Friday, encouraging people to shop online. Now that a large amount of Black Friday shopping is also done online, Cyber Monday generally bookends a whole long weekend of deals. 

What deals will be available on Cyber Monday? 

You can find deals on all kinds of products on Cyber Monday. This includes tech and electronics — such as phones, tablets and smart home devices — plus small appliances, kitchen gadgets, clothes, beauty products and subscription services. You can find a sale for a bit of everything, but there’s definitely a focus on tech. Although you’ll still find some offers when Cyber Monday rolls around, big-ticket electronics such as TVs and high-end laptops are often pushed on Black Friday, while smaller tech items are more commonly found discounted on the following Monday.

When it comes to specific products, however, you won’t know exactly what deals will be available until Cyber Monday is nearer. It’s a good idea to put your favorite products in your online shopping cart so you can checkout as soon as deals go live. You can also sign up to the BestReviews email newsletter to stay up to date on Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals, as well as great products and offers throughout the year.

With the HERO10 now available, it’s likely that Cyber Monday will see a reduction in the older HERO9 model. It’s still an excellent action camera, featuring 5K video recording capabilities, 1080p live streaming and a 20MP camera for still shots.
