Here is the truth, I have gone to “Black Friday” sales a whopping 2 times. The first time was fine, but the second time someone pushed my Mom. Um, not cool. After that, I was ready to throw in the proverbial towel instead of worrying about saving money. But, then Cyber Monday came along!
Now, I having been shopping, almost every year, on Cyber Monday. I prefer the safety of my home and the relaxed feeling of perusing the virtual aisles. Plus, I can take as long as I want to mull over an item without worrying someone will rip it from my hands.
The other great thing about Cyber Monday, is that most places will offer free shipping.
[Side note: I have a real problem paying for shipping. I have an Amazon Prime Membership which I LOVE! I can buy almost anything with free shipping. In case you are interested, Amazon Prime has a discounted monthly membership fee (see banner ad at the bottom of this post). If you sign up through the banner ad below, I will receive a small commission. But, I highly recommend Amazon Prime because I LOVE and USE it. (A lot more than I would like to admit, lol.)]
Cyber Monday started as the Monday after Black Friday. But, stores are pushing daily in store sales (some are also offering the same prices online with free shipping) as early as the beginning of November. Of course, their goal is to get as much of your money as possible. Your goal is the opposite, well I hope it is the opposite. 😊
What sales are the best for you and your family? Or what is it that you can afford to purchase right now? Hopefully you are ahead of the curve and made your “gift list” a few months ago. If not, start right now. What gifts will you be buying? Are there any that make the “Cyber” list, such as: televisions, popular toys, blankets, or small appliances? If so, start searching now because those are the items that will be on sale now through Cyber Monday.
Now, if you don’t have the money quite yet to shop Cyber Monday, I would suggest waiting until Friday, December 15th. Why would I wait until December 15th? That is FREE SHIPPING day!! Whoo hoo! Do you see my virtual confetti??? Lol 😀
There are literally 100s of stores that will be offering free shipping on that day. Plus, there is NO minimum and you will receive your purchase by December 24th!!!!
My goal, for this article, is to help you save as much money as possible on Christmas gifts. So, do your research for your gift list and decide if your items will be on sale during Cyber Monday sales. If you must wait, be sure to shop on Friday, December 15th for free shipping with no minimum!!!
Hope that you can save a bundle on Cyber Monday or Free Shipping Day!
