What is Cyber Monday?

Feeling confused about Cyber Monday? Find out what it is, when it is and how you can grab a great deal

Cyber Monday is part of the Black Friday shopping extravaganza, where online stores offer huge discounts. Here at AO, we’ve got Cyber Monday 2019 sorted for you, so pop the kettle on, fire up your laptop and get ready for some great deals.

Where does Cyber Monday come from?

Cyber Monday made its debut on November 28th back in 2005 and has quickly become one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. It started as a way for companies to encourage people to start shopping on the internet and offered customers amazing deals off the high street. Fast forward a decade and Cyber Monday is now almost as big as Black Friday, offering bargain hunters the chance to nab some of the best deals on the net.

When is Cyber Monday 2019?

Traditionally, the weekend of discounts starts with the Thanksgiving holiday on a Thursday. Black Friday falls the day after, with Cyber Monday following it three days later. Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here in the UK, we do love a cheeky deal. Black Friday 2019 falls on November 29th, so Cyber Monday will be on December 2nd 2019. Here at ao.com, we like to be generous, so we’ll be offering deals before and after Black Friday, too. Just in time to grab a Christmas bargain!
