The word "Monday" in Cyber Monday makes you think all the best deals are on that specific day, right? Well, that's actually not the case this year. Retailers are being more aggressive with sales as evidenced by stores holding Black Friday sales on Thursday. Many are providing online discounts earlier than the designated Cyber Monday. SmartMoney says:
"As retailers push online sales more aggressively throughout Thanksgiving week and even earlier in the season, Cyber Monday may lose some of its luster. "Every day this holiday season is Cyber Monday," says Dworsky. Amazon, for example, opened its "Black Friday Deals" store Nov. 1, with offers such as 67% off the complete "Arrested Development" series on DVD and 83% off select high-end watches. That's not to say it isn't worth looking on Cyber Monday, says Mitchell — just don't wait until then to buy thinking you'll get a better price."
You may still find good deals on Cyber Monday, but if you spot some great discounts before then, try not to hold out on buying the items. Keep in mind that the product may also run out of stock by the time you decide to buy it. Of course, make sure you're not buying on impulse and it's something that you need that you've been keeping an eye out for.
