Which stores have Cyber Monday sales? 

Like Black Friday, nearly all major retailers will have tons of deals and discounts for Cyber Monday. That includes the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart, as well as more specialized retailers such as B&H Photo, GameStop and Dell. Major retailers with brick-and-mortar locations, such as Target and Walmart, will be offering online-only savings, whereas Best Buy’s Cyber Monday deals are both in-store and online. Keep in mind physical locations can also run out of items.

These days, much of the month of November is dedicated to early Black Friday deals then switching to early Cyber Monday deals the weekend after Black Friday. Most companies launched their sales weeks before Black Friday itself but there are plenty of new discounts for Cyber Monday. In addition, some retailers will extend their Cyber Monday deals well into December for “Cyber Week.”

Generally speaking, yes. The number of deals launching exclusively in stores has been dwindling in recent years, and this was certainly accelerated during COVID-19, when crowds were discouraged and much of the shopping moved online. Some retailers — such as Walmart and Target — are offering online-only deals, whereas others such as Best Buy extend their Cyber Monday savings to in-store locations. as well.

Why is it called Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

The term “black” has historically been used to denote distressing or calamitous events. The earliest known use of Black Friday for the Friday after Thanksgiving was to refer to the practice of workers calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving in the early 1950s. Around that same time, US police adopted the term to describe the traffic conditions during the first major holiday shopping date. 

After attempts to move to the term “Big Friday” failed, merchants attempted to ameliorate the term Black Friday in subsequent years, suggesting that its origin was not due to the poor traffic conditions the shopping day created, but because the profit it generated put stores “back in the black” in financial terms.

Then, in 2005, the National Retail Federation coined the term “Cyber Monday” because it had noticed a spike in online traffic the Monday following Thanksgiving. At the time, they believed it was because people were making online purchases while they were at work following the holiday so their kids couldn’t see any gift purchases and because work computers usually have faster internet connection. 

There was some chatter about calling the date Black Monday or Blue Monday — because hyperlinks are blue — but eventually, everyone settled on the more futuristic-sounding Cyber Monday. In 2014, Cyber Monday became the biggest online shopping day in the country.
