Cyber Monday 2017 is today and we've been saving our pennies to splash out on some awesome tech. This year's edition is set to provide an epic amount of incredible deals and you can find out where to get the best possible deals right here. Read on to find our choice of the best Cyber Monday deals, including these fantastic offers from Amazon.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is one of the biggest shopping days in the calendar. Coined by retail research company Shop.org, Cyber Monday is viewed as the beginning of the holiday shopping season. You'll be able to find some of the best tech specials anywhere.
Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday delivers huge savings and discounts on thousands of products from many of the biggest retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart and Target. You'll also be able to find deals from some smaller retailers. We here at AndroidPIT are getting into the spirit too. We have some hand-picked deals on our homepage, so be sure to check them out.
How is Cyber Monday different from Black Friday?
The difference between these two shopping days is characterized largely by consumer behavior. More people will shop on Black Friday, but tend to spend more on Cyber Monday. There are also differences in terms of the products and deals available, but both days turn up huge savings on electronics, apparel and entertainment products.
