Cyber Monday FAQ

When is Cyber Monday 2020?

Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after Thanksgiving. This year, that's November 30, 2020.

When does Cyber Monday start?

Typically, Cyber Monday sales are one day only. However, some retailers will blend them together with their Black Friday sales, either continuing throughout the weekend or repeating Friday's deals on Monday.

Many Cyber Monday sales begin at 12am ET on November 30, 2020. This means some shoppers will stay up Sunday evening to snag the deals that are most likely to sell out.

How will COVID-19 affect 2020 deals?

During this pandemic year, Black Friday sales are going to be more online-focused than in years past, so there may be less of a difference between the two shopping holidays.

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is a retailer-created holiday to encourage online shopping. It debuted in 2005 and, thanks to media coverage and advertising, quickly followed Black Friday as the U.S.' second big shopping holiday.

Does Apple do Cyber Monday?

Apple has traditionally offered Cyber Monday deals as a continuation of its Black Friday sales. In 2019, Apple's Black Friday sales extended throughout the weekend, starting on Black Friday and ending on Monday. Historically, the promotions have offered shoppers free Apple gift cards with select purchases instead of reduced Apple prices.

In 2019, Apple included gift cards ranging from $25 with the purchase of an Apple Watch Series 3 or AirPods up to a $200 gift card with select Mac purchases.

Apple resellers, instead, have shaved hundreds of dollars off Macs and iPads, beating Apple's own Monday deals.

Can I expect better Apple deals from other retailers?

Third-party retailers will typically give you the best Apple deals.

Significant savings on Apple products can bring shoppers to retailers' apps and websites. Vendors like Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy often use deals on products like iPad, Apple Watch, and AirPods to drive customers onto their platforms. Their goal is for buyers to do more shopping there at the same time, install their apps, get on their e-mail lists, and build a habit of doing their online shopping with them.

Looking at historical data, in 2019, Target took $110 off of the 10.2-inch iPad, Best Buy shaved $150 off the 11-inch iPad Pro, while Amazon took $45 off a new Apple Watch. Amazon also had a $350-off closeout deal on the 2017 MacBook Air, and B&H Photo took $200 off the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

When is the best time to shop Cyber Monday deals?

Each deal will have a separate starting time, so if you're worried about something selling out, be sure to log on a few minutes before the listed start time and refresh the page until the deal appears.

Many retailers start their Cyber Monday sales at 12am ET, making it more like Cyber Sunday Night for early shoppers.

Which retailers have the best Apple deals?

Until all the big stores have released their deals, there's no way to know for sure. Sale flyers frequently begin leaking in the preceding days or weeks.

Some of the most well-known retail outlets like Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy offer eye-catching Apple sales. If you have a membership, you can also keep an eye on warehouse clubs like Costco and Sam's Club. Other Apple Authorized Resellers like B&H Photo, Adorama, and Expercom frequently have steep discounts on Macs and other Apple gear, with many of the season's best deals available exclusively to AppleInsider readers.

AppleInsider will continue to track all the best sales, so be sure to check in regularly and bookmark this page to make sure you're first to see the best Apple's deals.
