What is Cyber Monday?

As the name suggests, Cyber Monday takes place solely online. There isn't any last minute panic as you wonder whether you've left the house on time or a mad rush to get through the crowds. The major appeal of Cyber Monday is that you can stay at home, take your time and easily compare product pricing on different sites.

How can I make the most of my money?

While you might not have to get in an actual queue on Cyber Monday, and you can do all the shopping you need from the comfort of your home, you won't be the only one.

This means you should definitely expect some 'online queueing' and the best way to beat the rush, just like shopping on the high street, is getting up early and beating the crowds.

Make sure you know what time the stores you're hoping to shop at are releasing their Cyber Monday deals and be prepared to get onto the website straight away.

Seeing as they're not confined by retail opening hours, websites could be dropping their deals from midnight.

Is there a future for Cyber Monday?

With Black Friday involving online sales more and more, the question that remains is whether or not there is still a place for Cyber Monday.

However a number of retailers now make the most of the whole weekend both online and instore, so while Cyber Monday may not survive as a stand alone discount day, it's likely to keep a place in the overall weekend of savings.
