5. Amazon Prime and Cyber Monday 2019

Around Cyber Monday Amazon Prime membership can have major perks – such as exclusive deals, early access to lightning deals, and extra discounts on prices that have already dropped.

Sign up for the 30-day free trial to give it a go – especially worth trying over the Cyber Monday period.

 

6. When is Cyber Monday 2019?

This year, Cyber Monday will fall on 2 December 2019.

It is always the first Monday after Thanksgiving, and in theory, marks the end of four days of bargain deals from many major retailers like Amazon which starts with Black Friday (29 November).

It’s worth noting though that many stores start offering their marked-down prices quite a while in advance of Black Friday now.

And Cyber Monday actually becomes “Cyber Monday week”, so in reality, Black Friday pretty much kicks off a holiday sales season that runs right through Christmas.

Cyber Monday 2019 presents some great one-day-only deals though that will be worth paying attention to.

The sales on individual items are often offered for a short period only – i.e. the price drops for as short as a few hours and then goes back up again.
