Keep reading as we delve into the world of Cyber Monday and look at some great ways to make the most of it!
Cyber Monday – The Basics
Cyber Monday originates from the United States where it takes place on the Monday following Thanksgiving Day. It was created with the aim of encouraging consumers to shop online through grabbing the online deals on offer from retailers!
Overtime, Cyber Monday’s success in the United States led to other countries adopting Cyber Monday deals to encourage a boost in online sales. Here in the UK, Cyber Monday has now become an exciting opportunity for people to make the most of some unmissable online offerings!
And when is Cyber Monday 2021 in the UK?
The all-important date for this event this year is 29th November – make sure to add it to your diary!
Traditionally, Cyber Monday focuses on tech goods, however, in recent years, the day has closely mirrored Black Friday with the only difference being that it’s based completely online.
