It’s predicted that $23B will be spent online between Thanksgiving Day and Cyber Monday. In fact, Cyber Monday is slated to set a record as the biggest online shopping day of the entire year, up almost 18% from 2017.
Here are 7 excellent Cyber Monday deals (some of which are available from Black Friday all the way through the weekend):
1. A MacBook Air for under $350
Need a new laptop? Walmart is selling a refurbished Apple MacBook Air (11.6-inch) for $319.99.
Apple itself is also doing a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale. If you buy a MacBook Air for $999, you get a $200 Apple Store Gift Card.
2. Lucky Brand jeans
Wanna get Lucky? Cyber Monday will see 50%-60% off deals, with free shipping on purchases $50 or more. Last year, you could even stack this with another 25% off coupon code for even more savings.
3. A new snowboard
Been thinking of investing in a big-ticket sports item this season? Dick’s Sporting Goods is doing 25% off site-wide for Cyber Monday. Free shipping (or buy online and pick up in store).
4. Cruelty-free makeup and bath products
If you’re into high-quality, ethical makeup and bath products (or shopping for someone who is), this is a very good deal: for Cyber Monday, The Body Shop is expected to offer 50% off its entire line of skincare and body products, with free shipping. This is arguably their best sale of the year.
5. 60-minute massages for $27 or less
Groupon is offering up to 91 percent off everything from physical items to services like massages. In the LA area, for example, you can get a 60-minute massage at Sparadise with aromatherapy and reflexology for $49 (down from $115); or a couples massage with foot reflexology for $49 (down from $100).
6. A $3,100 vacation for $499
If you’ve ever wanted to do a classy, resort-style winter getaway, this is the time to go: Bluegreen Vacations is running a Cyber Monday deal that’s 80 percent off. They’re offering customizable, 7-night resort packages for $499. Pick from 20 properties around the country, including places like the beautiful Wilderness Club in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri (picture snowshoeing followed by a mug of cocoa by the fire).
7. Swarovski earrings for $7
Need a great gift for a lovely lady? These stud earrings with Swarovski elements retail for $79, but you can get them for $6.99 right now.
8. BONUS TIP: Wait until Tuesday to buy airfare
Air travel company Hopper has analyzed flight pricing data over time and says the best airfare sales are on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (not Cyber Monday).
According to the company’s chief data scientist Patrick Surry, “Last year, we sent more deal notifications on Travel Deal Tuesday than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. In 2016, we saw fare sale activity spike by 2X the normal volume.”
A few of their predictions for this Tuesday’s flight deals:
- Honolulu: 27% off
- New York: 26% off
- Rio de Janeiro: 32% off (it’s worth remembering that it’s summer in Rio right now)
- Aruba: 32% off
- London: 40% off
