While most deal hunters are focusing on Black Friday this week, another shopping holiday is right around the corner. It’s Cyber Monday, and this year it falls on November 26. This online shopping day might seem like an afterthought after Black Friday, but it’s a terrific day of deals in its own right. Last year, Cyber Monday was the biggest online shopping day in the US, and you can bet retailers noticed. That’s why they’ll be dropping prices once again in hopes of grabbing their share of online consumer holiday spending.
Many more details about the Cyber Monday deals will start to appear over the weekend, once Black Friday is over and bargain shoppers have begun to catch their breath. But some Cyber Monday information is already here. Let’s take a look at what sales we know we’ll find on Cyber Monday 2018.
You don’t have to wait for Cyber Monday to get digital PS4 games at nicely discounted prices. Sony has already made its Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale live on the PSN. Running between now and November 27, this sale drops prices on games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 ($48), Assassin’s Creed Odyssey ($40), and hundreds more.
Along the same lines, Xbox One owners can already pick up a huge selection of games for discounted prices. And while no specific Cyber Monday sale has been announced, Microsoft’s current deals will be available between now and November 26.
Not content to offer just an extended weekend’s worth of discounts, Ebay is doing an eight-day sale across Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and beyond. The online retailer will also have special deals only available on Cyber Monday, including limited-time discounts popping up every hour from 6 AM – 9 PM ET (3 AM – 6 PM PT). The company promises deals offering up to 80% off Apple, Xbox, Nintendo products, and more.
Ebay will also have a “Best Price Guarantee” program, which not only matches eligible competitors’ prices, but also knocks an extra 10% off. There are no blackout dates, so it even applies to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
Walmart will have a Cyber Monday sale, but we only have a few details about it so far. Expect to see a full rundown on Saturday or Sunday, once the Black Friday smoke has cleared. In the meantime, we know the following items will be on sale.
- MSI GV62 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3G for $799 ($200 savings)
- SAMSUNG 58″ Class 4K (2160P) Ultra HD Smart LED TV for $447.99 ($80 savings)
GameStop has said that many of its Black Friday deals will continue over the weekend and run through Cyber Monday. But if this year shakes out like some previous years, some of the best Black Friday deals will come back around on Cyber Monday.
Though details are sparse, Best Buy has announced it will expand Cyber Monday over two days: Sunday, November 25 and Monday, November 26. Additionally, some deals will be available all that week at Best Buy.
Target has a history of participating in Cyber Monday discounts, so it’s a safe bet to assume the practice will continue this year. On Cyber Monday last year, Target offered 15% off nearly every item available on its website, so let’s hope for a similar deal this year.
Apple hasn’t announced its Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals yet, but the company has said its sale will run November 23-26, which encompasses both shopping holidays.
