Advertised Black Friday 2016 deals leave no room for Cyber Monday deals this year. New kind of Cyber Monday deals expected. Site-wide discounts?

Besides Amazon, Microsoft and a few other big retailer, all Black Friday 2016 ads have been divulged. What is striking is the amount of deals on high-end consumer electronics.

The Black Friday ads of Best Buy, Walmart, Target and others are full with deals on 4K TVs and mid-range to high-end laptops. Advertised deals for Black Friday also include Apple products including iMac, Macbook, iPhone, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad Pro. There is nothing really left for Cyber Monday, besides a variation of the deals on the same type of products.

In the past years, retailers offered predominantly deals on higher end products on Cyber Monday. The Cyber Monday deals also lacked the low ball doorbuster offers that are a main stable for Black Friday. See the Cyber Monday deals from last year.

Maybe we will see more radical Cyber Monday deals as offered last year by Target. The Target Cyber Monday deal was a 15% site-wide discount. Best Buy seems to have the biggest issue this year, making Cyber Monday deals stand out. Last year's Cyber Monday deals are pretty much part of this year's Best Buy Black Friday deals. A site-wide discount on everything on bestbuy.com would turn heads.

The Cyber Monday 2016 ads and deals are expected to be released in the days ahead of Black Friday. It will be very interesting to see how Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, Target and others solve the problem and keep Cyber Monday relevant.

Update: The full Dell Cyber Monday 2016 Ad is available as of November 16, listing all Dell Cyber deals. The ad confirms that Cyber Monday deals this year look pretty much like Black Friday deals. Cyber Monday lost its identity through the type of deals shoppers can get on the biggest online sales day in the United States.

The online sales on Thanksgiving Day grow every year. The the overall online sales on Thanksgiving Day reached $1.73 billion, up 25% from last year. Cyber Monday set a new record in 2015 with $2.98 billion, but the sales volume only grow 12%. Thanksgiving Day is only a about a Billion behind and with the quality and hype around 4K TVs, the Thanksgiving Day online sales will set a new recording closing in on Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday 2016 is on November 28. Many retailers will kick off Cyber Monday sales events right after Black Friday ends. You can find more Cyber Monday 2016 deals and news in our Cyber Monday 2016 hub.
