About Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday was first introduced back in 2005 in an effort to encourage consumers to shop online, thus boosting online retailer sales. Cyber Monday follows the Monday after the American Thanksgiving Holiday and it's gained popularity over the years as it follows Black Friday, which is one of the biggest and most popular retail sale events. Although the Cyber Monday sale was initially popular for tech deals, consumers can now shop great specials on a wide range of products including groceries, clothing, and building materials amongst others.
When is Cyber Monday Celebrated?
Cyber Monday occurs the Monday following Black Friday, which is one of the biggest retail shopping sale events of the year. This year's Cyber Monday will take place on Monday, the 28th of November 2023. Cyber Monday is popular for offering exciting deals on tech products, especially smartphones, laptops, and appliances. Unlike Black Friday which sees consumers queuing for hours trying to score great deals in-store, Cyber Monday offers consumers the opportunity to shop amazing deals at their fingertips.
How is Cyber Monday Celebrated?
Cyber Monday is not a Public Holiday but mainly a retail holiday. South African shoppers mainly opt to shop online to avoid queues but there are great deals in-store as well. To get the most out of Cyber Monday, consumers can load their online carts the night before so that they can see which of their favourite items are discounted on Cyber Monday. This also helps speed up the checkout process so that you don't miss out on any great deals. Some of the deals are timed and only offered while stocks last, so preparation and speed can help you save some extra cash on Cyber Monday.
Which Stores Have Cyber Monday Sales?
Cyber Monday is not as big as Black Friday but gives consumers the opportunity to shop any deals they may have missed out on during Black Friday. So if you've had your eyes set on a new phone or laptop, Cyber Monday will be the perfect day to shop and save.
