Black Friday used to be one day but over the years it has expanded to a week or more, starting before Thanksgiving and continuing through the following Monday. Cyber Monday is the busiest day of the year for online shopping as retailers compete to offer shoppers the most tempting deals. Not surprisingly, Cyber Monday is online giant Amazon’s biggest sales day of the year by far and this year’s shoppers will find more than 75,000 discounted items to choose from.
Amazon tablets and more
Also not surprisingly, Amazon will have many of its own products on sale like the Echo wireless speaker for $139.99, the Fire TV for $74.99 and the Fire TV stick with Alexa remote control for $29.99. Just about all Amazon Kindle tablets are discounted by $30 with the Voyage going for $169.99. The 7” Fire tab is just $33.33, making it an ideal stocking stuffer.
Amazon is offering a 50” 1080p LED TV for $145, a rock-bottom price for a TV this size but the brand is not named. Another Cyber Monday deal is a 50” 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $249.99. Amazon has offered very low prices on big screen TVs in past years but quantities have been limited so they go pretty fast. Select speakers and headphones are also on sale.
Amazon will also be offering 50% off select toys by Nerf, Play Doh and Playskool. Select iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners will be $99 off with other vacuums also discounted. Save 30% on select clothing, jewelry, watches and shoes for the entire family.
As a strictly online seller, Amazon can offer exclusive shipping deals to its Prime members, like early access to Lightning Deals and $5 off one Cyber Monday order plus an additional $5 off an order placed after December 2. Prime subscribers in 30 cities can get one-hour shipping on more than a hundred Cyber Monday deals.
Hint: The best way to score the hottest Cyber Monday deals from Amazon is to check back several times during the day to see which new items have been added.
