Cyber Monday 2018 is coming soon and we've been saving our pennies to splash on some awesome tech. This year's edition is expected to provide a great amount of incredible deals. You can find where to get the best possible ones right here. Read on to find our selection 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 of the year. 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 during this time.
Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday delivers huge savings and discounts on thousands of products from many of the biggest retailers, including Amazon, 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.
Where to find the best Cyber Monday deals
Well, that would be right here on AndroidPIT. We’ll bring you the tech best deals throughout the day to help you get the hottest products at the best prices. We have some exclusive specials from vendors and manufacturers, as well as a plethora of sales on our AndroidPIT Deals Store. If that’s not enough, we’ll provide a list of places where you can go hunting on your own.
Most of the major online retailers will be running flash sales throughout the day, so if you know what you're looking for, just head over to the relevant retailers and see if the product you want is being offered.
Amazon is the king of going all out for its Cyber Monday event. The Amazon Cyber Monday landing page usually lists an overwhelming amount of discounted items. Here are the best deals we found:
