It’s almost that special time of the year when parents in various countries worldwide get ready for Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday is a time when shoppers can take advantage of insane deals without having to leave the comforts of their homes.
Some of the sales are equivalent to or better than the deals people see on Black Friday. The best part about it is that it’s all online. There are no messy lines, long waits, or fights among customers to worry about. Shoppers can sit back and pick up the rest of their Christmas presents without interference. This year looks like it’s going to be a historical one.
When Is Cyber Monday 2020?
Cyber Monday changes every year because it’s the Monday directly after the Thanksgiving holiday. In 2029, Cyber Monday fell on December 2. In 2020, the Cyber Monday shopping day will be on November 30. Some of the stores are kind enough to offer the Cyber Monday sales a little bit early. Amazon, for example, has opted to start its Cyber Monday pricing on the 28th of November.
Who Participates in Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday started in the United States back in 2015. It was originally a way to encourage shoppers to buy items online instead of going out to crowd the stores. No one knew how much of a hit it would be. The event took off so quickly that over 70 percent of retailers reported an extreme rise in their profits. It has been a hit in the United States ever since.
Every year, new countries started following suit. Currently, more than twenty-some countries observe Cyber Monday.
