Cyber Monday began as an online version of Black Friday where online retailers offer big discounts and deals to match sales seen in store on Black Friday.
It may surprise you to know that Cyber Monday has now surpassed Black Friday as the biggest shopping day of the year in terms of revenue and sales.
Cyber Monday was “invented” in 2005 as an online version of the sales seen in-store during the American Black Friday sales. It has been adopted as an online shopping day around the globe. It was created, like Black Friday, to encourage people to start their Christmas shopping. It is a great opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done early and avoid the crowds!
A key difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday is that it’s often a better day to buy tech gadgets. Especially older generations of big-ticket tech items like TVs or phones, as retailers clear their stock to make space for the latest models for Christmas.
Yes, they do! You can get great Cyber Monday deals from retailers based overseas, especially in America, and NZ-based retailers are increasingly adopting Cyber Monday too.
Cyber Monday this year falls on December 2, 2019.
As it is online, Cyber Monday typically starts at 12am on 2 December 2019. Although this may vary depending on the timezone of the retailer. However, retailers have started offering Cyber Monday deals even earlier, starting on the preceding weekend….and running through the rest of the week.
On this page we have gathered together our Favourite NZ Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals. You can also follow your favourite retailers on social media or subscribe to their newsletters so you can stay updated about all the best deals.
For New Zealanders there is a blurry line when it comes to the difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals.
In America, Black Friday was typically a day for shopping the sales in physical brick and mortar shops, and Cyber Monday was typically for online shopping. But both types of sales are being offered for longer…with Black Friday deals available all through November, and Cyber Monday deals running for around a week.
Generally, Black Friday is a better day to shop for larger big-ticket items, while Cyber Monday is better for tech gadgets and older-generation tech.
