Black Friday VS Cyber Monday - What Both Days Are Known For
Black Friday is a name given to the huge shopping day after Thanksgiving in the U.S because of the volume of shoppers that created havoc and sometimes even violence.
This day is known for when mega-retailers offering massive discounts in-store, with consumer electronics being one of the most popular categories. To encourage more shoppers to shop on that day, retailers will only provide bigger discounts on that day.
Meanwhile, Cyber Monday starts on the following Monday after Black Friday. Most of the time, majority of the retailers will offer a continuation of their Black Friday deals into Cyber Monday where prices will occasionally continue to drop. Which means you can snap up on some really great bargains.
Cyber Monday is often where online retailers offer huge discounts to holiday shoppers. Addition to that, they're also more catered towards accessories and clothing in contrast to Black Friday on consumer electronics.
How To Stay Safe During Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales?
Regardless of whether it's a regular online sale or Black Friday sales, it attracts scammers as well as dishonest sellers. Hence, be very cautious of unsolicited emails, too-good-to-be-true deals or suspicious links to deals on any sites. No matter how legitimate they look, any sites that ask for your credit card or login details may be a scam.
