What is Cyber Monday?
Who knows any more really! It’s essentially a continuation of the modern-day late-November sales period with an online twist.
It’s the Monday that follows Black Friday to give you a simple answer.
The ‘cyber’ tag is partly a charming throwback to the days when buying online was not the multiple-times-a-day-with-your-phone novelty, and partly a nod to the high tech nature of the goods being hawked.
Surprising as it is to some folk, Cyber Monday is still unusually huge day for buying stuff online. Even though the Black Friday jaded naysaying begins sometime around mid-November, it still really is the extended weekend of Black Friday itself through to Cyber Monday that sees a bonkers £5.8 billion being spent by British consumers.
With stats like that, Black Friday and Cyber Monday isn’t going to go away.
See you next Monday for the return to the usual Dirty Deals!
If there’s anything left in the world still on sale by then anyway.
