A major Cyber Monday 2014 deals event held online is set to last for eight straight days, giving customers plenty of products to consider as gifts. The special cyber sale will feature a Chromebook, several flatscreen TVs, Blu-ray or DVD discs and more. Amazon, the online retail giant, will look to continue to add to its sales numbers as the holiday shopping season is still about four weeks away from Christmas day. Will Amazon have the deals in their seal to keep customers buying? Amazon’s sale started today and will run for 8 days.
A report from TheVerge.com on Nov. 29 indicates that Amazon will extend its sale for eight days. Among the items featured in their sale are a Nest Learning Thermostat for $199 which is $50 off. Also discounted will be Bose headphones, with select models set to be discounted by $30 off. An Acer Chromebook will be just $149 for those interested in the laptop alternative. HDTVs will continue to get put on sale, but they may not be the deals seen for Thanksgiving or Black Friday. A 40-inch Sony 1080p LED TV is just $298, while a 49-inch LG 4K Ultra HD LED TV will be $999 with 15% back in rewards. Amazon will also discount a number of Blu-ray and DVD titles including “The Dark Knight Trilogy.”
The Best Buy online sale for Black Friday is still ongoing for customers who want to shop now. As of this report, they were offering a 40-inch VIZIO Smart HDTV for just $499.99. Also on sale are the Macbook Air for just $779.99, the Windows 8 10.1-inch tablet with 32GB storage for $149.99, or a similar package including a keyboard for $199.98. The Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle with a spare controller is $429.99, while certain video games are as low as $29.99 for various platforms including PS4 & Xbox One. Beats by Dre Solo HD on-ear headphones are just $79.99. Best Buy will also have a Cyber Monday sale for shoppers to consider, but their deals right now seem tempting.
Cyber Monday is officially earmarked for Monday, Dec. 1 this year. A few years ago, the big online shopping day fell on one of the last days of November, which gave retailers an even bigger boost. However, this year it’s been a struggle for some retail outfits as protesting across the country and individuals who weren’t interested in going out shopping on Thanksgiving may give lower returns. That certainly opens the door for more online shopping which is what Cyber Monday was made for.
Will you be shopping online this Monday, or will you continue to watch for deals leading up to Christmas?
