Here, you will find great Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Tips. We compare the shopping experience on Black Friday with that on Cyber Monday and offer shopping tips for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
Black Friday – November 27, 2015
Black Friday is huge – in the US, Black Friday sales for 2014 topped 2014, with over 89 million shoppers nationwide. Everybody loves Black Friday! 60 percent of the shoppers prefer to shop at physical stores on Black Friday. This means waking up early in the morning, at around 4 AM and lining up outside the shopping mall, hoping to get a really great bargain before someone else does! The average buyer spends $400 on Black Friday shopping – which is really quite something. We expect 2015 Black Friday to be the biggest ever, buckle up your seat belt and enjoy the ride!
Here’s why shopping on Black Friday is so great…
Discounts. It’s all about discounts. You get incredible discounts on Black Friday on your favorite electronic gadgets. How big? 45% to 60% – that’s how big!
And whether you shop at a physical store or at an online store on Black Friday, you don’t have to worry about your orders getting cancelled. As long as the products are in your shopping cart during the checkout, they are yours for the keeping.
Buying online makes sense because most online retailers offer free shipping on the BIG day. So, shop freely and happily on Black Friday this November 27. Maybe it’s time to get that brand new Lenovo laptop everybody’s been talking about, don’t you think?
Cyber Monday – November 30, 2015
Now, Black Friday may be a lot of fun, but it’s not for everyone. Really, not all of us are willing to wake up at 4 AM in the morning and march to the nearest shopping mall like zombies! For many people, it makes much better sense to avoid the Black Friday rush altogether, wait for a couple of days more for Cyber Monday.
You can actually get even better deals on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday. That’s because most online retailers will want to get rid of the inventory that remains unsold on Black Friday. A lot of laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. are going to be marked down. So, there’s going to be a lot of stuff that’s available for unbelievable discounts.
Online retailers sold over $2 billion worth electronic gadgets last year on Cyber Monday – which means that Cyber Monday sales were actually even bigger than Black Friday in 2014 – which is just amazing. We expect the trend to continue in 2015 as well.
Another big advantage of shopping on Cyber Monday is that you will be shopping online – so there’s not crowd to deal with, and you can shop from home or from your workplace. November 30 is the date! Mark it.
Black Friday versus Cyber Monday
We are big fans of Black Friday shopping, but recommend Cyber Monday over Black Friday because you will get store-wide discounts on all products on Cyber Monday, while on Black Friday, you will only get product-specific discounts. This is a huge difference, and it means that you will save a lot more money on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday. But there’s no question that you will find shopping on Black Friday to be much more exciting and even thrilling. So, our advice is to shop on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. How’s that for a solution?! Hope that settles the Black Friday versus Cyber Monday debate forever.
