After the Black Friday sales, Cyber Monday arrives, a day that fans of online purchases take advantage of to advance their Christmas gifts
After the Black Friday shopping hangover is over , Cyber Monday arrives , just two days after the first one is celebrated. In its 2022 edition, this event will take place in the United States on Monday, November 28.
According to various experts, Cyber Monday has become one of the biggest online shopping days of the year , even surpassing what happens on Black Friday. For example, in 2021, the United States saw total purchases of $ 10.7 billion on Cyber Monday, compared to $8.9 billion on Black Friday.
For this 2022, the expectations that are held on Cyber Monday is that more than 63 million people make their purchases on this date, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF, for its acronym in English).
Cyber Monday was born as a need to extend Black Friday purchases to e-commerce companies, which did not have a physical store themselves, and which were being excluded from Black Friday, such as eBay and Amazon. It was an initiative of the National Retail Federation and the first event of its kind was held in 2005.
What time do sales start?
Cyber Monday sales are scheduled to occur starting at midnight on Monday and run throughout the day, until shortly before it kicks off on Tuesday. According to Adobe research, during 2021, the biggest Cyber Monday sale took place between 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm.
