What Is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday gives you the chance to save big when you shop online. It began in 2005 with just a handful of websites and grew to include many of the top online retailers. Cyber Monday deals help you save on everything from furniture and clothing to books and electronics. You'll even find sales that help you save on all your holiday gifts.

What Is the History of Cyber Monday?

Ellen Davis came up with the term “Cyber Monday” with help from Scott Silverman when working for the National Retail Federation. issued a press release in 2005 that used the term to describe the busy shopping day. Cyber Monday discounts let you save on the first Monday after Thanksgiving, which happens sometime between Nov. 26 and Dec. 2.

What Do We Like About Cyber Monday?

We like that Cyber Monday gives us that chance to shop from home in our pajamas. Why bother getting up early in the morning on Black Friday and waiting in line with hundreds of other shoppers for doorbuster deals that you might miss? Cyber Monday deals let you get good prices on products that you can buy and have shipped to your home. We also like that big-name stores often offer big discounts like "buy one, get one free."

What Deals Can You Expect on Cyber Monday?

The top Cyber Monday deals change from year to year. It's hard to know what you might find until the month before the big day. You can get an idea of what to expect when you check out some of the previous sales offered.


Target usually starts its Cyber Monday sales on the Sunday after Thanksgiving and runs them until the next Saturday. Previous sales offered gift cards to the first few people who ordered plus discounts that took up to $75 off select flat-screen televisions.


Unlike other retailers, Amazon often offers Cyber Monday freebies and deals for more than a week. You'll find deals popping up around Thanksgiving and continuing all the way through December. Past deals include air fryers for 33% off and memory cards for as little as $10.


Though many know Walmart for its Black Friday sales, you'll find big deals on Cyber Monday, too.

Cyber Monday also offers sales on electronics, including laptops and fitness trackers.

How Can You Find Local Deals?

In addition to big-name retailers such as Amazon, you may find that local shops celebrate with Cyber Monday deals. Many shops advertise their future sales both in-store and online. Local restaurants and stores offer these sales as a way to make more money before the holidays.

What Are Some Budget-Friendly Ways to Celebrate?

If you want to celebrate Cyber Monday but don't have a lot of money to spend, don't worry. There are tons of budget-friendly ways you can ring in the holiday.

Create Your Own PJ Day

One of the benefits of online shopping is that you don't need dress to go out. Make Cyber Monday a pajama day and encourage your friends and family to wear their favorite jammies. You can make the day even more special with a fun breakfast.

Look for Freebies

Though many sites offer Cyber Monday freebies as a way to drive sales, others let you get free stuff without buying a single thing. Auntie Ann's often offers free delivery when you order through the app, and Godiva may give you a free box of chocolates when you spend $50 or more. Some pizza places also offer a "buy one pizza and get one free" deal when you order online.

Plan Your Day

Save money when you plan your Cyber Monday shopping strategy. Walmart and other major retailers often release their sale ads in the beginning or middle of November to show you what you can buy. It's easy to go through those ads to mark the sales that you want to hit online.
