On November 30, shoppers can get big discounts on great holiday gifts in several categories including tech, home, kitchen, fashion, and more. If you’re shopping for Christmas presents, Cyber Monday may be one of the final deal opportunities this year. We’re expecting many of the same deals we saw on
to resurface on Cyber Monday, and many Black Friday sales are getting extended through Cyber Monday.
To help you get a head start, we rounded up several early Cyber Monday deals you can shop right now on Amazon, plus answers to the web’s most frequently asked questions regarding Cyber Monday, Cyber Week, Amazon, and the rest of the sales happening this month.
Amazon’s latest eero mesh Wi-Fi system includes three units that serve as both routers and range extenders in one, creating a Wi-Fi network that covers your entire home. During Black Friday, this normally $249 set drops to $174. While not the best deal we’ve seen this year, this markdown is still a solid discount over its usual price.
Cyber Monday happens every year following the weekend after Black Friday. This year, the online-focused shopping holiday lands on Monday, November 30. Cyber Monday sales can start as early as Saturday morning after Black Friday.
This year, Amazon’s Black Friday sale officially starts Friday, November 20 with new discounts released every day. However, many sales that happen during Black Friday will likely carry over through Saturday and Sunday.
We expect some “doorbusters” to be released on Cyber Monday, with limited supplies. Though Cyber Monday sales once only took place on Monday, we’ll likely see some deals last through the rest of the week.
Before Cyber Monday and Black Friday, Amazon’s Holiday Dash sales event offers fresh deals every day through November 19 then followed closely by Amazon’s pre-Black Friday sale which will last through November 27.
During these sales events, shoppers can find daily markdowns on electronics, home goods, fashion, and more. Stock is often limited, especially on the very best offers, and these deals expire at the end of the day.
Amazon’s sales also include tons of markdowns on men’s, women’s, kid’s, and baby apparel. Accessories like watches, bags, and jewelry are also discounted, as well. Plus, shoppers can expect 20% off refurbished products from Amazon Warehouse, as well.
In addition to markdowns on physical products, several Amazon services will also be marked down during Cyber Monday. For example, Amazon’s Music Unlimited streaming service is free for 3 months until the end of the year and new Audible Plus subscribers can save $3 a month off of the usual amount for the first six months.
- We only choose products that meet our high standard of coverage, and that we’ve either tested, used in our daily lives, or researched carefully.
- We will compare the prices against other retailers like Target and Best Buy and only included the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
- All deals will be at least 20% off, with the occasional exception for products that are rarely discounted or provide an outsized value.
Amazon’s Cyber Monday markdowns are as good as those offered during Black Friday and are on par with the Cyber Monday discounts from Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. We expect Amazon and its competition to price-match each other during Cyber Monday. Shoppers can expect big savings on digital content, streaming media players, smart home products, and more.
In fact, there’s a good chance we can see a repeat of what we saw during Prime Day. We expect to see several Amazon-branded goods and Echo devices see lows similar to those found last month.
During Cyber Monday, shoppers should pay attention to two types of deals: daily deals and Lightning deals. The former are one-day offers, usually grouped by brand or category, and change at the end of the day. The latter are limited-stock offers released throughout the day. We expect to see the best deals to come in the Lightning deal form.
Amazon Prime subscribers will get the most out of Amazon’s Cyber Monday. We’ve found that shoppers can make up the cost of the subscription with their savings from shipping alone. If you don’t shop
Amazon often, but want to take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts, consider a $13 monthlong membership. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits through most of the sales event.
Shoppers should also consider applying for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature credit card — for the 5% cashback on all Amazon purchases and a $100 gift card.
