There was a time when Black Friday was the day to get holiday bargains, and you had to camp out all night — before you even had time to digest your Thanksgiving meal — to get the best deals.
Well, good news: You can relax and eat leftovers this weekend instead of getting stuck in the stampeding Black Friday crowds. All of the most popular retailers are offering a slew of online deals for Cyber Monday, and many stores have already launched their online deals!
A helpful hint: If you really don’t want to wait for your purchases to ship to your home, most top merchants offer the option to order online, and pick up in-store.
Here’s a quick guide to saving big on Cyber Monday:
Athleta (up to 8.6% Cashback) is offering 20% off in-store and online, Friday, November 27th through Monday, November 30th.
Levi’s (up to 12.5% Cashback) : 40% off all online and in-store purchases from Thursday, November 26th through Monday, November 30th.
Gap (up to 8.6% Cashback): Take 40% off your full purchase on Monday, November 30th.
Many other retailers like Banana Republic, Nike, Old Navy and American Eagle will start rolling out their deals soon, so check out the top ways to save on DubLi.com throughout Cyber Monday.
Don’t Sweat the Tech…Except These
Though conventional wisdom has indicated that Cyber Monday typically isn’t the best time to get tech products, there are still great deals to be had — just make sure you set aside some time on Cyber Monday to snag them.
Best Buy (up 6.5% Cashback) hasn’t yet released their Cyber Monday deals, which tend to be the best among retailers, with an average discount of 37 percent and more than 600 items on sale. Last year the tech giant featured Panasonic 50″ LED 1080p Smart HDTV ($499.99) among the HDTVs that are on sale. Tablets starting at $49.99, Macbook laptop and desktop deals are also among the advertised sales.
Some early notable deals from Walmart include a 48-inch Samsung 4K TV for $598, an Xbox One with an additional wired controller for $299.96, a 65-inch LG 4K TV for $799 and a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet for $599. Walmart (up to 6.6% Cashback) says more deals will be unveiled as Cyber Monday approaches; customers are able to ship orders to a store for free pickup but shipping directly to a customer’s home will require orders to be a minimum of $50.
Hit the Bullseye at Target, Macy’s
You might have seen that Target (up to 7% Cashback) is ramping up its holiday marketing by taking consumers on an epic holiday odyssey. The retail giant usually features a great Cyber Monday cavalcade of savings, and this year will be no different. Here are just some of the deals that have been leaked:
- Extra 15% off your order w/coupon CYBER15 (Valid 11/30)
- Extra $25 off $75+ order when you order online and pick up in store (Valid 11/30)
- Extra 15% off online Apple items w/coupon CYBER15 (Valid 11/30)
Holiday retail favorite Macy’s (up 7.8% Cashback) hasn’t revealed any deals yet, but if last year is any indication, its Cyber Monday event won’t be one to miss. Macy’s began its 2014 Cyber Monday event the Sunday before, which included free shipping on orders of $50 or more, and the following deals:
- Select KitchenAid and Cuisinart mixers and food processors were 30 percent off, with Macy’s offering an additional 15 percent off.
- Women’s boots and shoes were 40 percent off with select boots buy one, get one free.
- Men’s fleece and down jackets, select dresses and women’s and juniors coats were 60 percent off.
Now that you’ve gotten a little glimpse, you have no excuse to avoid those dreaded holiday shopping crowds. Just heat up some leftover turkey, pull out your laptop or mobile device, and grab some of the best Cyber Monday deals while they last.0
