Even though Black Friday is over, there are still plenty of deals to be had on TVs, laptops, smartphones, toys, and more for Cyber Monday. The Monday after Thanksgiving is typically the biggest online shopping day of the year, and many people return to work after the holiday and snag some great gifts with excellent sale prices. This year the Christmas shopping season is shortened because Thanksgiving fell so late in November, which leaves roughly one fewer weekend to purchase holiday gifts than in other years.

According to a CNET report, this year, retailers overall saw a massive increase in buying as shoppers spent $7.4 billion on Friday. That is a huge 19.6 percent increase over last year’s buying on Black Friday. Shoppers went for toys and video games the most on the day after Thanksgiving. Still, there are other great gifts to purchase for Cyber Monday even though many of the prices remain the same as brands offered on Friday, and frequently, retailers simply declare that their Black Friday pricing is extended into Monday. However, some online retailers do offer an additional percentage off, and free or faster free shipping to entice shoppers to spend money at their sites.
