What first started out as a singe day of Internet shopping called Cyber Monday has now turned into a whole week of online deals and bargains called Cyber Week. Many people are now asking will some Cyber Monday sales last all week? This is a great question to ask as the whole Black Friday Cyber Monday thing can be a tad confusing since many companies are starting these special days a day earlier.
This year companies are really pushing the envelope by blurring the lines on which day Cyber Monday starts and how long it will last or will it turn into a Cyber Week or not. For example, look what happened this Thanksgiving as some brick and mortar type retailers pushed their Black Friday back one day into Thursday evening. Walmart for example opened its doors at 8:00 p.m. EST, November 22, 2012 a day before Black Friday.
The same thing is starting to happen with Cyber Monday as more online stores, some big ones, are starting their Cyber Monday on Sunday with some announcing that they will have a week long sale ending on December 1st, 2012.
Ok, so let’s clarify again. What time does Cyber Week 2012 start? Well, for sake of simplicity let’s just say Cyber Week starts Sunday November 25th and lasts until Saturday December 1st, 2012.
However, the reality of Cyber Week is that each company has their own timeline for this special shopping event. So what stores will be having a Cyber Week sale? Let’s first take a look at some of the big retailers that will be advertising deals, bargains and discounts for the entire week. After that I’ll list other stores advertising just cyber deals on Monday or thru Tuesday.
I found 4 top online retailers having their Cyber Week starting on November 25th to December 1st. Here are the 4 companies with descriptions and featured items with discounts and special shipping details listed.
