The Cyber Monday date is December 2 this year - and it's getting closer

If you've come to this page simply because you're trying to figure out if the Cyber Monday deals are going to be any good in 2019, well, we're here to help.

If you've been living under a rock since 2005 (roughly when Cyber Monday started to become 'a thing') then you'll have missed the 'new' phenomenon of loads of online discounts when people are - largely - back in the office.

It's the perfect time to grab some bargains ahead of the Christmas period and, while Trump's recent tariffs have meant that some prices might be rising on Cyber Monday this year, that doesn't mean we still won't see some strong discounts in 2019.

 December 2, 2019 is the official Cyber Monday date. So it's later than usual. That is because Thanks giving and Black Friday 2019 fall later in the year, too. You are going to have to shop online for deals sooner and get everything in wrapped faster.

We also have a host of Cyber Monday predictions, detailing what we expect to be on sale and where you're most likely to save: Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon are the top brands, even though the latter option is more focused on its own Prime Day sales these days.

Last year, we saw the all-time lowest prices on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and iPad, and very minor discounts on the AirPods. All of these deals went incredibly quickly, and that was just in the tech sector. We're expecting a lot to fly out of the toy arena too this year (Fingerlings and L.O.L. Surprise were big last year, according to Adobe Analytics), as well as strong discounts on appliances like Instant Pots.

It should be easier to find discounts all of these products in 2019. PS4 deals and Xbox One offers are expected as those consoles are at the end of their lifecycle and we've seen even better AirPods discounts recently. Apple iPhone XR is no longer brand new, either, so that will be cheaper.

 Revenue estimates a year ago reached $7.9 billion in the US for Cyber Monday, meaning it topped every other shopping day ever online, according to Adobe Analytics. With that in mind, it's best to be prepared for the range of online Cyber Monday deals coming your way.

When do Cyber Monday deals start in 2019?

 December 2 is Cyber Monday.

 While the date (and sometimes even the month) shifts from year-to-year, it's always the Monday immediately after Thanks giving.

This is 1 of the years in which the Cyber Monday date dips into December, and in our past experience, this means everyone has less time to shop before Christmas. You'll have just 23 days to make it happen.

Sure, you don't need to worry about Cyber Monday 2019 today or even tomorrow, but it'll be a big deal when you still have an entire list of gifts to buy on December 2.
 And have to calculate shipping times.

 With Black Friday Cyber Monday combined offers American retailers a one-two punch to boost their revenue right before the close of 2019. That's why we're going to see the most tempting offers come December 2.

The best Cyber Monday deal predictions

Cyber Monday has become more popular than any other online shopping day in the US, so we anticipate seeing an increase in deals at the tail end of 2019.

You do not need to be Nostradamus.
 To make Cyber Monday deal predictions. While there are always new surprises, the script stays fairly stagnant year-over-year.

In the mood for an action camera? GoPro is usually $50 cheaper, at least. Need a tablet? Apple iPad was $250 (and even briefly $229) during Cyber Monday last year.

Need a phone? There were rare incentives to getting an iPhone XR, and an even better value if you didn't want Apple's iPhone, with Motorola leading the pack.

iPad predictions for Cyber Monday 2019

Newest Apple iPad 9.7 launched at $329 in March 2018, and the price plummeted to a mere $229 for a few hours of Cyber Monday last year. Now, it is back to its $249 price that we saw it at during Black Friday.

That is $80 off today. 
So we are really interested in how much the iPad will cost when we reach Cyber Monday 2019. Such significant Apple discounts are rare, so finding the standard iPad for such a cheap price makes it a very popular gift.

Cyber Monday iPad deals often go out of stock for the more popular colors, and the entire things ends up selling out after a few hours. You have to act fast. It's not an official lightning deal, but people snap this up, and then third-party retailers jack up the price on Amazon immediately.

We may see Apple introduce a new iPad 9.7 for 2019, given the fact that it'll be a year-and-a-half without an entry-level iPad. But we do have other nearly-as-cheap options now: the iPad mini and iPad Air. We can expect a Cyber Monday sale for those iPads, too.

What is Black Friday 2019?

Black Friday is the day after Thanks giving next  immediately  Friday when retailers begin the holiday shopping season. It’s based around the aforementioned “doorbusters”, discounts so impressive that bargain-crazed customers will try to break the doors down before the shop opens - although that’s more of a virtual craze these days. 

The actual date shifts every year, by the day of the week stays the same: it's always the Friday after Thanksgiving, and this year it's later in the month of November.

November 29, 2019 is the official Black Friday date. meaning it's closer to Christmas (less than a month before Christmas Day), and that gives you less time to shop online.
