Cyber Monday is the most convenient time to stock up on gifts for the holidays because you can shop from the comfort of your own home. Plus, you minimize the pressure of limited in-store stock and the temptation to compete with other consumers at your preferred retailers. But where do you even begin with so many promotions and sales? Before you start your shopping spree, here is a quick rundown of where you can find your best deals.
Let’s cut to the chase; If you plan to shop Amazon this Cyber Monday, Prime and Alexa are your best friends. Cyber Monday deals begin on Sunday, November 26 at 5:00 PM PST for Prime members with Alexa. Check out amazon.com/voiceshopping or simply ask “Alexa, what are your deals?” If you are without an Alexa-enabled device, Prime members receive 30-minute early admission to Lightning Deals.
Remember to browse through Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals Week section which features promotions on toys, electronics, clothing, home and more. Act fast, though, since offers labeled as ‘Deals of the Day’ and are only available for a limited time.
No need to fret if you don’t have a Prime account! Keep in mind that many of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals are already up and running. Plus, select items receive free shipping even without a Prime account.
Tip: If you are a student, you may be eligible for a discounted membership fee with Amazon Prime Student.
Find discounts on the season’s most popular toys, electronics, jewelry and more with Walmart’s Cyber Monday deals. Their rollback and reduced prices provide customers with savings on nearly every item.
Shopping at Walmart is easy with their shipping and pickup options. Avoid shipping fees when your cart reaches $35 or more (their free 2-day shipping is the bees knees). If you need the item now, Walmart provides free in-store pickup with eligible items. And get this; you could even receive a discount on your purchase if you opt for pickup.
Worried you missed out on Best Buy’s Black Friday deals? Well, you’re in luck as many of their promotions will be repeated on Cyber Monday. They’ve already begun numerous offers; shop now and receive early access to deals when you sign in to your My Best Buy account. Keep in mind that Best Buy does not offer rainchecks or call-in orders. However, they do offer free shipping until December 25, 2018.
If you’re on the hunt for a new phone, word on the street says you’ll receive cash-back savings instead of a gift voucher with the purchase of a Samsung phone.
Save up to 50% on laptops, desktops, gaming consoles, TVs, printers and more with Dell’s Cyber Monday deals. They’ve even discounted their tablets and smart watches! Receive no interest financing when you pay the full amount within six months (only valid on new purchases of $199 or more). Be on the lookout free gift card promotions. For example, purchase this VIZIO 55’ 4K Smart HDR Ultra HDTV and receive a $150 eGift card.
On the hunt for a smart home product? Bed Bath & Beyond is your go-to retailer with the Amazon Echo Dot (2nd gen) listed at $19.99. Save $30 on an Amazon Echo ($69.00) and $40 on an Amazon Echo Spot ($89.99).
Also featured are discounts on Nest products including the battery smoke and carbon monoxide alarm and outdoor security camera. Remember to use your Bed Bath & Beyond coupon for an extra discount!
