Cyber Monday is expected to generate more than $2 billion dollars in sales this year as more and more tech-savvy shoppers turn to their mobile computers, smart phones and tablets to surf the web for bargains.
Monday thousands of South Floridians will head back to work after the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, but that doesn’t mean the start holiday shopping blitz is over.
Cyber Monday is oftentimes a more popular shopping event than Black Friday. The convenience of shopping at home without the hassles of the lines and throngs of people can be a huge draw. However, it’s important to know which sites are the best for deals, quality and ease in online shopping.
It’s one of the earliest starts of the holiday shopping season in years but price-watchers in South Florida and across the country are now warning some Black Friday “deals ” may not really deliver the deepest discounts of the year.
All around the country, shoppers hit the web for cyber Monday sales. Maybe you were looking for shoes, designer bags, or sunglasses. But some shoppers may have seen warnings saying the Feds seize 150 online stores. Some right here in Florida.
Sorry bosses, nearly half of all Cyber Monday shopping will be done on company time while employees are supposed to be working.
Everyone wants the best possible deals when shopping for the holidays. Stores bring out the bargains the day after Thanksgiving (aka Black Friday), but that also brings out the crowds and, occasionally, the crazies. The shrewd holiday shopper might prefer to wait three more days for Cyber Monday, to enjoy some great online bargains, without the long lines and empty shelves.
It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving. You know what that means don’t you? Not only is it the first day back to work after the long Thanksgiving holiday, it’s also a day when retailers are hoping you’ll spend big bucks online.
What comes between Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Small Business Saturday is now hoping to become a staple in the big launch to the holiday shopping season.
