Cyber Monday is the best day of the year for those of us who enjoy mad Black Friday savings, but hate the crazy crowds and long lines. Amazon has us covered with crazy Cyber Monday savings we can get from the comfort of home.
The great thing about Amazon is that to them, Cyber Monday starts the day after Black Friday. According to the massive online retailer's press release, "Cyber Monday... is an exciting day for shopping, both online and in stores. At Amazon we strive to bring you low prices every day, which is why we are always excited about bringing you the best Cyber Monday deals." Well, Amazon, we're excited too! Let's see what goodies they'll have for us this week.
Tips for saving on Amazon on Cyber Monday
Before we get to the deals, we have some tips on getting them. After all, there's a limited supply.
First, if you see something you like here, click it immediately to see where it is in the process. It will open in a new window, so you won't lose your place. If it isn't sold out, there will be a little box in the right corner of the page that shows the Lightning Deal status. It will show a timer counting down how long you have to get it and how many are taken.
Additionally, if you haven't already, sign up for Amazon Prime, which can also save you money on shipping. There's a 30-day free trial, so if you can get all your Christmas shopping done in the next 30 days, you'll pay nothing. Just remember to turn off the automatic renewal or it will automatically charge you. With Amazon Prime, any qualifying item (marked with the Prime logo) gets free two-day shipping with no minimum order size. You also get unlimited instant streaming of lots of movies and TV shows and can borrow one Kindle book free each month.
Note: Since Amazon isn't releasing the pricing until a few hours before the deal goes live, we don't have the prices, but most deals, especially on higher-end stuff, are 50 percent off or more based on the deals that have gone live already.
