Cyber Monday, what is it?
Posted on 28 November 2016
Cyber Monday, the online shopping bonanza, refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday, which rounds off a four-day weekend of mega sale shopping. This year it falls on November 28. Until 2014, Cyber Monday was the world's biggest online sales day until its rival Black Friday took over.
Black Friday became a shopping sensation in the US because many Americans would take the day after Thanksgiving (which always falls on a Thursday) off work to have a long holiday weekend. Retailers therefore cut prices on this Friday to get consumers into their stores to kick-start the Christmas shopping season.
But by the Monday, Americans were back at their desks – and retailers noticed that consumers were continuing their shopping online at their office computers and Cyber Monday was born.
