Black Friday and Cyber Monday: Which has the best deals?


These big shopping days are fast approaching and it may be time to start making a plan on how you are going to get the best deals around. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the world’s biggest annual shopping weekends. Unless you have been living under a rock for years or you have been doing your best to avoid shopping, you are probably familiar with the great sales that have spread around the world.

It falls on Friday, November 29 and Monday, December 2, this year, two great shopping days will witness deals in all places of consumer industries, including electronics. Although deals don’t go quiet on weekends or any other days, but you can expect the best deals and the best discounts on these great days.

What is Black Friday?

Friday after Thanksgiving is Black Friday, which means this year on Friday, Nov. 29, Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year, both in-store and online. It kicks off the Christmas holiday season officially and most retailers discounting products for its entire 24 hours.

What is Cyber Monday?

The next Monday after Black Friday’s is always Cyber Monday. Which means it will fall on Monday, December 2 of this year. Good news for those who don’t believe in purchasing Christmas gifts before December. Cyber Monday is a yearly online weekly shopping holiday that occurs every Monday after Black Friday. This year, it falls on 2nd December. Now let’s take a look at the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and which one offer the best deals.

What is the difference?

One major difference between these days is how they priorities online and in-store deals. Black Friday has traditionally been associated with bricks and mortars affair, the biggest in-store shopping calendar, while Cyber Monday focuses on online transactions, as the name suggests. Securing itself the reputation of being the greatest online shopping day of the year.

However, the reality in this era of comfort is that both days are great for online shopping, where retailers will surely sport saving signs throughout the period as well as in the following days. In the United States, there is greater attention on Cyber Monday. It’s perhaps the country major shopping affair of the year; it has surpassed Black Friday in popularity for both consumers and retailers. Which one has the best deals? Tech deals will be great on both days and across the weekends, but if you are looking for something big, like a TV or laptop, then perhaps Black Friday is your best bet, which is usually when big-ticket items receive the major discounts.

Cyber Monday is usually considered better for clothing deals, with retailers and some fashion brands likely to run site-wide discounts rather than discounts for specific items. It is also better for small products, and for snapping up any last-ditch prices on the remaining stocks.

Another reason to buy on Black Friday instead of Cyber Monday is stocks. Retailers like Amazon tend to set aside big inventories for goods they expect to sell all through the weekend, and you do not want to wait too long before delivery or, worse, a 'sold out' refusal.

Our tip: If you see anything you want with a discount that's right for you, purchase it - particularly if it is a flash deal because stock could be limited. Don’t get caught up in the hype. Stores pull out all the stops to make you experience the fear of missing out, such as “Best prices of the year!” “This sale will not be repeated”.
