Why You Can Save BIG on Black Friday and Cyber Monday
If you're not from the U.S., you may be wondering: What exactly is Black Friday? Or Cyber Monday? And how does Thanksgiving come into play?
In short, Black Friday is the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday (the 4th Thursday in November) when shoppers traditionally flood into retail stores (or browse online) to start holiday shopping.
To compete for customers, retailers offer big discounts on Black Friday - but many merchants now extend the sales throughout all of the week. Online vendors vie for shoppers with their own large discounts on Cyber Monday, the first day of the following week - but as part of the general grab for customers, online sales start well before Thanksgiving as well.
Bottom line? Over the past couple of decades, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become the most important sales period of the year for savvy shoppers as brands around the world have started offering the discounts.
