Cyber Monday is the term used for the Monday after Thanksgiving. Retailers have counted on the Friday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, to be their biggest day for sales (ala using say newegg codes) during the year for quite some time, and in 2004, online retailers noticed a huge increase in sales on the Monday after Thanksgiving when shoppers had returned to work.
Eager to capitalize on the trend, by the time the 2005 Thanksgiving rolled around the term Cyber Monday was created and online retailers began offering Cyber Monday discounts and deals.
The United States is not the only country to utilize the term. The United Kingdom, France, and Portugal also take advantage of Cyber Monday except they extend it for a total of eight days, lasting from the last Monday in November through the first Monday in December.
Online retailers have enjoyed an increase in sales each year after Cyber Monday became an online marketing term and it is expected that Cyber Monday 2010 will be no different.
A Cyber Monday website is now in existence, created for added convenience for the online shopper. All one has to do is to access the website for a complete listing of Cyber Monday Deals 2010. Cyber Monday and its website have become so popular that the Cyber Monday website offers Cyber Monday-style deals and discounts year round for the online shopper enthusiast. One can quickly and easily determine which online stores are running special discounts, any time of year, doing away with the old-fashioned time-consuming method of trying one store?s website, then another, and then another in search of the best deal.
