Biggest Cyber Monday and Black Friday Deals: How to Get Them

Biggest Cyber Monday and Black Friday Deals: How to Get Them

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are around the corner, and many of you are likely gearing up for the crowds and looking for ways to stay ahead of the frenzy. For Cyber Monday and Black Friday newbies, they are just two of the busiest shopping days of the year. Black Friday (November 23 this year) is the day after Thanksgiving and officially launches the holiday shopping season. The term “Black Friday” was originally used to describe insane traffic after Thanksgiving in Philadelphia, but later on it meant the point at which retailers started to profit (to be “in the black”). Cyber Monday (November 26 this year) is the Monday that follows Black Friday and was conceived by retailers in 2005 to make people shop online.

Black Friday, Cyber Monday

Needless to say, the clever marketing ploy was a success—it’s one of the best days of the year to get incredible discounts on your online purchases. In fact, comScore reported that Cyber Monday 2010 was the highest spending day of that year. And it’s not only in the U.S.—Cyber Monday has spread to countries like the U.K. and Chile. So what can a shopper expect on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Retailers open very early, usually at four in the morning. Some major stores even open at midnight and stay open overnight! Also, expect a lot of serious discounts, offers, promotions and deep cuts on everything from shoes to electronics.

How to Get Deals?

It pays to have a game plan for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, especially if you’re going to be hitting up a lot of local retailers. First, know what you can and cannot afford. Just because everything is half off doesn’t mean you should run yourself into debt. Remember that a deal is no longer a deal as you rack up interest charges on credit card purchases. For Black Friday, have a budget, make a list and stick to the list. Get the most important item in your list first, and be prepared for not getting all deals. Leave the kids at home—the lines are long, the stores are packed and people are grumpy. Do take a friend or your hubby with you (great for holding your spot in line in case nature calls).

Don’t worry if you can’t go out; there are lots of sales and deals online. Our favorite is Amazon’s week-long Black Friday event. For Cyber Monday, go to your favorite store’s website and sign up for their email newsletter. Many stores are giving subscribers exclusive coupons and discounts. Also visit eBay, Ebates, SlickDeals.net and price comparison websites. Deals are usually price matched, so make sure to compare prices from different websites at different times of the day—20% off can quickly turn into 50% off! To give you an idea of what’s out there, we’ve picked out some top deals (prices may change):

Thanksgiving Day To Be The New Black Friday

Thanksgiving Day To Be The New Black Friday

Some retail stores have broken the long tradition of “Black Friday” that has been practiced over the years by opening their doors a day earlier. The decision has taken many shoppers by surprise with some embracing the move and others seeing it as a distraction on a very important day in the United States calendar. Most of the retail stores that have embraced this new strategy are the ones that usually attract long queues of customers on Black Friday even in previous years. Some of them include Target, Toys R Us, Sears, Kmart and Walmart among others.

These retail stores plan to open their doors to customers seeking bargains between eight and nine in the evening so that they can start their shopping early. For most families this time slot is when they are just finishing up their Thanksgiving dinner and can therefore rush out and do some shopping. According to the management of many of these stores that have adopted the early sales strategy, customers will have a lot more hours to shop which is a request that they have been receiving from many of their customers. During previous Black Friday sales many customers had to contend with a large number of people waiting to get into the door of a retail shop and also plan to arrive early so as to buy at items at discounted prices.

The start of sales on Thursday will enable customers to spread their shopping and have an opportunity to enjoy a variety of deals that are being offered by the retailers as an incentive for them. The larger the numbers of customers that embrace shopping on Thanksgiving Day, the better as most retailers expect to bring in a larger percentage of sales than in the previous years. In addition, retailers also see the Thursday opening as an opportunity for customers to focus on the holiday and then shop, which allows them to avoid storming stores early Friday morning. However, not everybody is impressed by this new strategy which has seen petitions being set up online on sites such as Change.org by a worker at Target who wants the retail store to open on Friday.

Will You Shop Thanksgiving Night?

Nevertheless, there are customers of these large retails stores that have fully embraced the idea and are planning to take advantage of the late night shopping. The discounts offered by the stores are also many as a way of attracting customers with some like Walmart offering items such as a TV, Blu-Ray Player and an iPad at fairly low prices for both their walk in customers and those who register online as well. At Target the deals that customers should look out for are likely to be on the Nook, Nikon camera and TVs. Furthermore, some of these retails stores will be offering deals the whole of Thanksgiving Day with exceptional deals starting later in the evening.

Overall, this change in strategy by retail stores is likely to be adopted by other retails stores that have kept to the traditional opening hours, if the demand for shopping on Thanksgiving remains high.
