When is Cyber Monday 2021?

After a weekend-long lull, Cyber Monday follows directly on from Black Friday.

Originally, it was a day of deals that were only available online, hence the name.

But these days, you’ll rarely find any deals that aren’t available both in-store and online – especially since internet shopping truly boomed in the era of Covid.

Cyber Monday is now an opportunity for retailers to send out any final deals they have tucked away, and to further lower prices across products already on sale.

The dilemma for shoppers, when the see a deal during Black Friday, is to wait until Cyber Monday to see if it improves – but the danger is that the product sells out before then.
