Walmart Cyber Monday: Should you Skip Black Friday for Walmart's Cyber Deals?
Walmart Cyber Monday 2016
 

The Walmart Cyber Monday 2016 deals are out. Are Walmart's Cyber Monday deals better than Black Friday's?

Walmart released as first of the big five retailers their Cyber Monday deals on Monday.

With Walmart's cyber deals on the table, we can compare the deals to what Walmart will offer on Thanksgiving.

Update: The Walmart Cyber Monday 2016 sale is live online at walmart.com.

The Walmart Cyber Monday deals feature a $999 Samsung 65" 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV$999.99 Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming Edition Laptop PC$379.99 VIZIO 50" 4K Ultra HD SmartCast Smart LED TV. The 50-inch Vizio 4K TV is advertised at a lower price in the Sam's Club Black Friday 2016 sale, if it is the same model.

The Walmart Black Friday 2016 deals include 4K Ultra HDTVs deals, such as a Phillips 55-inch Smart 4KTV for $298 and a Samsung 50-inch Smart 4K TV for $398. Other television offers consist of a Vizio 60-inch HDTV for $398, a 40-inch HDTV for $125 and $225 50-inch Emerson 1080p HDTV

The aforementioned deal highlights of Walmart's upcoming sales events make clear that the notion that there is a difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is wrong. Cyber Monday is just another online Black Friday. This is more true than ever this year as Black Friday deals have been upgraded and are not just low end items. 

Consumer who are planning on finding deals this Holiday season need to understand the upcoming sales events as one. The best deals will be available starting 9pm PST Wednesday Nov. 23 through Monday, 9pm PST. After that time all of the best Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals are gone and don't come back until next year.

Shoppers who are pursuing the Holidays most wanted items including the Nintendo NES Classic and the Hatchimals will not find more inventory on either of these shopping days. Hatchimals are advertised for Black Friday at Walmart. The NES Classic Edition is completely sold out and will likely come back in December at the earliest. 

The Walmart Black Friday 2016 deals will be released at 9pm PST on Wednesday, November 23. This is midnight for east coast shoppers. Based our observations of the Walmart Black Friday sale, deal hunters can expect to find leaked Black Friday deals available before 9pm PST. It is advised to visit walmart.com before the official launch time.

The Walmart Cyber Monday sale begins Friday at 12:01am EST on walmart.com.  Jeff Bezos' online giant is set to launch the Amazon Cyber Monday sale at the same time.

While Walmart markets the Cyber Monday sale to begin on Friday at 12:01am ET, the real Cyber Monday deals will not be available until Monday Nov. 12:01am EST. Note that this is 9:01pm PST Sunday. To shop the Walmart Cyber Monday 2016 on walmart.com right when it is starting is recommended. There might be again announced cyber deals slip out early. Checking the Walmart site before the rush can help land deals.

Retailers started taking notice of this day as Internet use increased dramatically in the early 2000s and consumers started doing more shopping online. By 2005, the National Retail Foundation finally designated the Monday after Thanksgiving, when online sales spiked, as Cyber Monday. More than a decade later, Cyber Week first appeared as retailers stretched their online sales to last the entire seven days after Black Friday so holiday shoppers could get a head start crossing off items on their lists.

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.
