Coming off the back of the US Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday, Cyber Monday is the perfect time for you to take advantage of some huge discounts on tech gadgets – you just need to fire up your web browsers and start shopping! The focus on Black Friday is usually on both high street stores as well as online retailers but Cyber Monday tends to concentrate more on shopping on the web.
The great thing about the day is if you’ve missed out on the Black Friday weekend sales, or not had time to get online, then you’ve still got Cyber Monday to fall back on! As it’s one of the last opportunities to land a deal before December starts, Cyber Monday just keeps getting bigger and bigger every year – many people now wait for the day (and Black Friday), saving their cash beforehand, as they know there will be hundreds of discounts, offers and deals to choose from. And all the usual benefits of online shopping apply to shopping on Cyber Monday; you can do it from the comfort of your own home or work, you can compare dozens of products and prices quickly, and you can purchase your goods straight away.
Last year we saw some brilliant deals on Cyber Monday – from the Sony PS4 Pro ($60 off from Amazon) and the Xbox One S (the console and two games for less than $300 from Amazon), to Dell discounts (12% off all laptops and computers), gaming laptops ($200 knocked off the price) and the iPhone 7 (prices dropped on contacts and no up front price to pay).
So, what are the best products we’ve found to buy on Cyber Monday?
Games consoles – we’ve already seen many searches for consoles in the lead up to Cyber Monday and this is because they’re always primed for discounts. If you don’t mind being a bit behind on your technology, keep an eye out for the slightly older console models as they should have the biggest discounts in place.
Mobile phones – Apple products, including the iPhone 8, are likely to see a lot of discounts and deals this Cyber Monday, as should the Samsung Galaxy 8. These are very expensive products so any reduction in price is going to be worth it!
Fitness trackers – this may not be your typical Cyber Monday product, but we’ve started to see price drops on a number of different fitness trackers (including the Apple Watch) so if health and fitness is your thing, now would be to the time to grab a tracker.
Headphones – again, another product that isn’t stereotypical of Cyber Monday deals, but another great one to keep an eye out for. Headphones make a brilliant Christmas present for those who love their music, so don’t forget to check out the deals on Monday – especially for the newest wireless ones.
DSLR Cameras – these are an expensive bits of kit that people don’t often rush to replace. With a slew of new models already out this year, Cyber Monday could be the perfect opportunity to save a few pounds (or a few hundred pounds!) on that camera you want.
TVs – TV tech continues to advance rapidly; 4K and HDR are now becoming the norm. Given the pace, and the fact that expensive new models get out of date quickly, Cyber Monday could be the perfect time for you to pick up some hefty discounts on a brand new flat screen for your home. A number of stores are likely to be running TV deals.
