  • With Cyber Weekend coming to an end, Cyber Monday is the next big thing to happen to the online sales before Christmas.

    But when is Cyber Monday? The big online shopping day sees buyers finish their Christmas shopping lists with a huge range of sales with everything from the Argos Cyber Monday deals to limited time offers, like £40 worth of free beauty products from Boots.

    It draws in big spenders who want amazing deals on technology and gaming, along with those shopping for jaw-dropping deals on top-range kitchen appliances like KitchenAid mixers or NutriBullet blenders. In fact, it’s because of all these cracking offers that people famously swoop online early in the morning and sites have been known to crash in previous years, with fast-selling items gone within just minutes.

    So when do these fabulous savings go live? And where are the best deals, still in stock, to shop this Cyber Monday? We’ve got everything you need to know.

    When is Cyber Monday?

    Cyber Monday is today! It often falls as one of the last days of November as it’s always the first Monday after Black Friday, following the origin of the tradition from the US. Cyber Monday made its way over here in the early 2010s, with Asda being the first UK retailer apart from Amazon to scoop up big profits on the shopping weekend.

    So from today, there are MASSIVE savings to be made on sites like John Lewis, Argos, Lakeland and more for homewares and appliances, and on Amazon and in Tesco Cyber Monday sale for top reductions on sought-after tech and gaming.

    This year, we’re loving the savings that have already gone live in the Argos Cyber Monday sale, as there’s huge savings on hot products like the Samsung 50in Smart Ultra HD TV (£150 off) and GoPro HERO7 White CHDHB-601-RW Action Camera (£50 off), along with big reductions on essential appliances like the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Vacuum Cleaner (£150 off) and the Kenwood KHC29.B0WH Prospero Stand Mixer (£100 off), perfect if a pricey KitchenAid isn’t quite in the budget this year.

    Tesco also have some of the best Cyber Monday deals, especially if you’re looking for personal care products like shaving sets, hairdryers or straighteners along with music tech, like headphone and speakers. Right now, they’re offering 50% off on beauty appliances like the 5-star rated Babyliss Bronze Shimmer Straightener (£50 off) along with half priced Jvc Gumy True Wireless Earphones (£20 off) for ultimate surround sound music, wherever you go.

    And what items have the best deals? Maybe all in the name, as the best deals on Cyber Monday are on high-ticket tech products like phones, laptops and televisions, appliances and gaming. It’s one of the key differences between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as the former is better for items like clothes and shoes along with smaller ticket buys.

    But we have noticed that Cyber Monday toy deals have got off to a flying start with kids’ favourites from the likes of the Entertainer, Smyth’s Toys and even Hamley’s now at rock-bottom prices. For new parents and family members wanting to shop for little ones, there’s MASSIVE half price savings on Cybex car seats from Mamas&Papas, as well as other great deals on baby products like cots and cribs, pushchairs and more.

    There are some of the best deals on larger kitchen appliances from Argos, Lakeland and Amazon mainly this year, with KitchenAid deals proving to be especially popular and flying off the shelves. But we’ve worked hard to find the ones (and their dupes) that are still in stock and ready to buy and be delivered to your front door before Christmas.
