Online Shopping is easier than ever, but is it cheaper?
If you’re the type of shopper who prefers to let your fingers to the shopping, Cyber Monday is for you. The day was created by marketing gurus to create hype for online sales. In 2005, in a push to get people to buy more online, marketers created the term Cyber Monday, with online retailers noting that their traffic jumped the workday after Thanksgiving. That was also 12 years ago when many households didn’t have high speed internet and resorted to shopping online at work after the sale weekend.
Since then, Cyber Monday has taken on a life of its own. Here are five tips to help to nab the best deals on Cyber Monday.
1. Free shipping for all
Online retailers offer deep, deep discounts that day. It’s also the day to nab free shipping, often with no minimum purchase. So if you want that $10 item shipped to your home without having to buy extra to avoid shipping, this is the day to do it.
2. Deal segmentation
Fashion deals are better on Cyber Monday and electronics deals are better on Black Friday and the week leading up to Black Friday. Keep your eyes on your favorite apparel retailer for deals that day. It’s also a day which some apparel retailers offer a sale on top of a sale, such as take an additional 40 percent off a clearance item.
3. Shop savvy
Have some apps or websites bookmarked to track prices online. ShopSavvy checks prices online and in stores and the Walmart app also helps compare prices with local retailers listing the best prices for you.
4. Shop online and return in store
Going to the post office this time of the year to return purchases can be a chore. Shopping merchants with both online retail and brick and mortar stores will help ease the pain. If an item isn’t quite right, it’s also a chance to exchange it for the right size while still getting the Cyber Monday pricing.
5. Look beyond the obvious
Cyber Monday may be great for stocking up on goods, but it’s also a good time to purchase experiences at discounted prices. Cruise lines will often offer deep discounts during Cyber Week, which may be the perfect gift for that someone who has everything.
