Cyber Monday is growing in importance for retailers every year with big growth numbers. The question for shoppers is if it is better to shop on Thanksgiving Day the online Black Friday sale or wait until Cyber Monday.
It is expected that Cyber Monday will be beating the sales volume of last year's Cyber Monday. Last year's growth was a spectacular 30%. This is especially surprising as many Cyber Monday sales already launched on the weekend after Black Friday and on Monday some of the best deals had been sold out.
The Black Friday online sale has also moved ahead. It is now on Thanksgiving Day or even on Wednesday. The online Black Friday sale has some advantages over the Cyber Monday sale. Retailers offer several of the highly discounted doorbuster deals also online on Thanksgiving Day. Cyber Monday has a broader range of good deals, but leaks the crazy Black Friday doorbuster deals. Check out this list of Cyber Monday deals that stores offered last year to get feel for what is coming.
Our suggestion is to try to get the outstanding Black Friday 2013 deals on Thanksgiving Day and then complete your holiday shopping on Cyber Monday 2013, December 2. Keep in mind though that you should already shop on the weekend and not on Monday.
