The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday. It is believed to be the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. While Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, “Cyber Monday” symbolizes a busy day for online retailers.
Cyber Monday was started in 2005 by Shop.org as a gimmick to get people to shop online the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend. The name has stuck and become a tradition that has spanned the globe. It has evolved into a significant marketing event for online retailers. The whole concept behind Cyber Monday is that consumers will return to their offices after the Black Friday weekend and make purchases online that they were not able to make in stores.
For those who hate the long queues on Black Friday, the deals and discounts offered on Cyber Monday are perfect! There is no mad rush, no elbow throwing, no waiting outside in the cold, and most importantly – no leaving the comfort of home or offices! While Black Friday has always been the most well-known amongst the in-store shoppers, Cyber Monday is now extremely popular with the online shoppers.
If you plan to shop from a particular online retailer, be sure to sign up for their e-newsletter a few weeks before the sales begin. It’s a good way to stay abreast of special deals and promotions, and a great way to score special subscriber-only coupons. It is thought that a large percentage of the shopping on this day is done during work hours. Keeping this in mind, several retailers offer additional lunchtime discounts to their customers.
Cyber Monday is a great time to shop early for Christmas and New Years and find something for everyone on your gift list. Christmas is a time for decorating households with Christmas centerpieces, wreaths and fresh flowers. People beautify their homes with vibrant floral decorations and arrangements which give the interiors a whole new look and feel. Cyber Monday gives you the perfect opportunity to add a whiff of fresh air to the Christmas merriment by sending spirited ensembles and vibrant bouquets to your loved ones in advance.
