Black Friday 2015 is almost officially over as an actual day, but the sales are going to keep on going throughout the holiday weekend. If you’re looking to avoid the fights and brawls that happened the past couple of days, then it’s time to shop online in the comfort of your home. Cyber Monday 2015 is about to begin, and here is all the info you need to know about start dates, start times, the best deals, and who is even having them.
Yes, it’s actually been made quite difficult to figure out when Black Friday ends and Cyber Monday begins, but they are different sales. Nonetheless, it shouldn’t matter much as the deals are there to be had and you merely need to keep on checking.
It may just be Friday evening, but some of the Cyber Monday sales are going to start on Sunday evening for shops such as Walmart. Others, like Toys R Us, are going to start early on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. so you’ve got to be ready.
The majority of the Cyber Monday sales below will run through the entirety of Monday, Nov. 30, but don’t wait too long to get started. A lot of rain checks won’t be available and once something is gone, then it’s gone and you could miss out on what you really want.

When looking through the sites of different stores for the best Cyber Monday deals, don’t just look in the “discounts” and “sales” sections as TIME suggests. Many retailers will have bargain prices spread throughout the entire site with many not advertised on main pages at all.
Do your research.
Now, retailers aren’t the only places that will have Cyber Monday 2015 sales. You need to make sure to check anything and everything. Some people don’t realize that car dealerships, restaurants, hotels, and even airlines can have some great deals for Cyber Monday, so do some searching.
The Points Guy put together a great list of airlines that will have sales for Cyber Monday 2015, and some of them could end up saving you a lot of money.
Air Berlin – Travel dates do vary by origin and you must book by Dec. 1 to take advantage, but there are some great European fares to be had, including $499 round-trip. Travel dates are far late spring and then into the late summer and early fall, so be sure to check them all.
Cathay Pacific – Some of the great deals include round-trip flight for $664 from Chicago, Boston, L.A., San Francisco, or New York to Hong Kong. Book by Dec. 4.
Delta – Through Monday, Nov. 30, book discounted award tickets for 10,000 miles each way.
Fiji Airways, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Etihad, and Eva Air are all also having Cyber Monday sales that are only running for a couple days, so get on them now.
With retailers, make sure you know when and how to get free shipping. Most of the time, it will be automatic for Cyber Monday sales, but sometimes you will have to put in a special code, so know it and add it before checking out.
Some say that Black Friday always brings in the most money for retailers, but Cyber Monday is really bringing in a lot of profit as well. The Cyber Monday 2015 deals seem to run forever for some stores, but don’t miss out on them because you don’t want to have the sales pass you by.
