This year’s Cyber Monday 2019 date is December 2 and it’s getting really close. If you have been in the dark all this while about what Cyber Monday is all about let’s educate you a little.
History of Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday was created by Tony Valado, in 2003 while working at 1800Flowers.com. This term was first used within the e-commerce community during the 2005 holiday season and was coined by Ellen Davis.
The term steamed from research in 2004 which showed that the Monday after Thanksgiving was “one of the biggest online shopping days of the year.
About Cyber Monday 2019
Cyber Monday is a new phenomenon of online discounts offered during office day and office hours. Cyber Monday 2019 is the perfect time to grab some bargains ahead of the Christmas period offering some strong discounts.
This new phenomenon, was created as a way to encourage and make it easier for such customers to still shop and has now become an international marketing term used by online retailers across the world.
The official Cyber Monday date is December 2, 2019 which may be later than usual. This is because Thanksgiving and Black Friday 2019 fall later in the year.
Cyber Monday, is seen as a time of great online deal purchases and discounts. Even though it is not a public holiday, a large number of people do most of their shopping on this day during work hours and several retailers go the extra mile to offer extra lunchtime discounts to their customers.
In the past years, we’ve seen top online retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, etc. Offering door-busting Cyber Monday deals that help shoppers make incredible savings.
Cyber Monday 2019 Predictions
Often, online retailers offer deals, and post the kind of deals and sales they will have on online forums and websites, several weeks and days ahead. Thus this year, we expect to see low prices on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, iPad, and also minor discounts on the AirPods in the tech sector.
We also expect to get some hot sizzling deals from the toy section too as well as strong discounts on appliances like Instant Pots. We also expect discounts on PS4 deals and Xbox One offers etc.
When do Cyber Monday Deals Start in 2019?
Cyber Monday is December 2, even though the date and sometimes the months vary from year-to-year, it’s always the Monday immediately after Thanksgiving.
For this year, Cyber Monday date slides into December, and from calculations, it means everyone has less time to shop before Christmas.
Combining Cyber Monday with Black Friday this year will offer retailers a one-two punch to boost their revenue right before the close of 2019.
