Cyber Monday 101

Save your coins and get your fingers ready to shop because Cyber Monday is quickly making its comeback this holiday season. Now, I’m sure you have a long list of stores to shop from and you may be wondering how you’re going to look through each site in time to catch these amazing deals. Or you may want to know what type of deals your favorite retailers will be having. I get it—shopping for Cyber Monday can be overwhelming and require a lot time and energy. But, hopefully these tips will help you save time and shop with ease.


Shop in Advance

One of the biggest problems people face when shopping for Cyber Monday is that they spend too much time shopping online and don’t really have enough time to thoroughly pick out their favorite items. Shopping in advance will help you get an idea of what items you may want from each retailer. This will definitely save you hours of switching from site to site trying to find what you want.


Add Items to Your Wishlist

Around this time, the wish list will become your best friend. I can’t stress enough how important this tool is for Cyber Monday shopping. Adding items in your wish list prior to Cyber Monday will give you a head start on checking out with your favorite pieces. By using the wish list, you’ll be able to transfer your chosen items into your shopping cart within seconds. I promise your shopping experience will be more efficient.

Follow Your Favorite Retailers on Social Media

FOMO is real—and while you may be constantly checking each retailers’ site, others might beat you to the amazing deals. Whenever a deal is going on, retailers immediately post it onto their social media accounts. This is the quickest way you’ll find the best deals—and let’s face it, nine times out of ten, online stores will have early deals leading up to Cyber Monday. It’s important to make sure you stay updated with each retailer you anticipate shopping from because items sell out fast.


All in all, Cyber Monday may be the best time of the year to get your most wanted items, but it can be tiresome. From switching through each site and wasting hours of your day to shop, you must find a balance. Using these tips will help you manage your time and save some money while doing so.
