Savvy Australian shoppers love a good deal and with the popularity of online shopping, many know that the month of November is a great time to shop. Why? Because of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
There are a lot of deals out there, but where are the best Black Friday deals? Knowing this ahead of time can help save significant money on large ticket items and even help eliminate the pressure of gift shopping for Christmas.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019?
Black Friday is the Friday immediately after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, this year it falls on November 29, 2019.
Cyber Monday, as the name may suggest, is the Monday immediately after Black Friday. So Cyber Monday 2019 will fall on Monday, December 2.
Although they are positioned as individual sales, many retailers now begin their Black Friday sales well before the actual day and end the sale well after Cyber Monday, giving shoppers a week or even two of excellent bargains.
What’s the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Originally Black Friday meant going to a store to shop while Americans had time off over the Thanksgiving holidays. And Cyber Monday was exclusively for online deals. Now, however, there’s barely any difference since most deals offered through the November sale period are also available online.
Cyber Monday is a newer phenomenon coming into being with the internet and e-commerce. It traditionally marks the point when people realised they needed to start buying Christmas presents.
Black Friday was traditionally more about electronics and other high-ticket items, while Cyber Monday was more about lifestyle goods. Nowadays, though, they’re all just one big smooshed-together shopping spree over an entire week or two.
