Best Cyber Monday deals 2020: When is it and what can we expect?

As we head into fall, we prepare for some of the biggest discounts of the season. Cyber Monday 2020 is set for November 30 this year, the first Monday after Thanksgiving. We expect to see hefty sales on all things tech, including Apple products, Chromebooks, gaming consoles, headphones, and more. And with some retailers already canceling their usual Black Friday events, expect the cyber sales to be bigger and better than ever.

There’s also the added bonus of Cyber Week, which means that we won’t see Cyber Monday sales happen on just one day, but most of these deals will melt over into the rest of the week as well. As we get closer to the event we’ll be continuously updating this page every hour to bring to you the latest and greatest discounts available, so you don’t have to traipse all over the internet to find them.

If you’re the type of person to wait until the end of November to begin your holiday shopping, keep a lookout for some of the most highly anticipated Cyber Monday deals right here.

When are the best Cyber Monday deals?

As we mentioned before, we expect Cyber Monday 2020 to take place on November 30th this year. Usually, with events like Cyber Monday, retailers like to start their discounts the weekend before so we predict sales going live for Cyber Monday the weekend of Black Friday. Most of the bigger sales will also spill over into the rest of the week so we’ll be seeing big discounts on all things tech for a while. That being said, jumping on Cyber Monday sales on Monday is your best bet if you’re holiday shopping as most popular, high-rated gadgets tend to run out of stock quite quickly.

Where are the best Cyber Monday deals?

Cyber Monday is the Olympics of online shopping, and everyone wants to participate. Most retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target will feature large price reductions for almost all of their top-rated tech. With big companies like Apple, Sony, and Google all releasing new versions of older products, we’re bound to see considerable discounts on their predecessors. So if you’re looking for a new Apple Watch or a PS4 gaming console, stay tuned for Cyber Monday deals.

Are any Cyber Monday deals happening now?

It’s way too early to speculate about Cyber Monday deals as we’re still a few months away from the event. Having said that, there’s still tons of gadgets like smartwatches, laptops, and headphones seeing discounts right now leading up to Prime Day 2020, set to take place in October this year. We’ve curated a list of all the best deals happening now below.

Should you shop on Prime Day or wait until Cyber Monday 2020?

Prime Day is rumored to take place in October this year, setting it extremely close to Black Friday (and by extension, Cyber Monday). A lot of shoppers are wondering if getting their holiday shopping done during Prime Day 2020 is a good idea or if waiting until Cyber Monday 2020 will guarantee them bigger discounts The answer is simple. With the pandemic lowering profit margins for most retailers, we anticipate that most products will have similar discounts for Prime Day and Cyber Monday. There’s also a lot of pent up demand for laptops, 4K TVs, and tablets as work from home is still our reality. We speculate a lot of these gadgets flying off their (virtual) shelves when we hit Prime Day and also run the possibility of these popular products not seeing a big enough restock in time for Cyber Monday sales. The best advice we can give you is this: If you’re a Prime member, you need to get the bulk of your shopping done on Prime Day. Waiting until Cyber Monday might mean that with the current economic climate, you won’t get any of your ordered items in time for Christmas.
