Black Friday — the day after Thanksgiving — is synonymous with viral videos of stores being nearly destroyed due to the influx of shoppers hungry for envy-inducing, once-a-year deals. Since 2005, it’s largely been considered the busiest shopping day of the year in the U.S., generating billions of dollars in sales for stores across the country. Countless news channels and bystanders have documented the mayhem that occurs around midnight, or just hours after you’ve had your last bite of pumpkin pie, after customers have lined up, often in the cold, for hours. Black Friday is unofficially the beginning of Christmas shopping, meaning that people are also lining up in pursuit of being world’s best gift-giver come December 25.
Cyber Monday, on the other hand, is the ultimate win-win. You get all the best of Black Friday's deals with none of the wild stampedes and fights over merch. In the past, we got you hip to sneaker deals and retailer discount codes, but this year, much of the best Cyber Monday scores are, unsurprisingly, tech deals. Stores like Amazon.com, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart (among others) are looking to clean up even further by giving shoppers some of the best deals they will find this holiday shopping season.
Some retailers, like Amazon, are celebrating a week's worth of Cyber Monday shopping deals, with other retailers offering big discounts on some of this season's biggest items, including the PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Switch, smart TVs, Apple Watches, gaming computer, and more. Whether you’re shopping for the special people in your life or you're just looking to treat yourself, here are The Best Cyber Monday Tech Deals.
