The Best Cyber Monday Deals of 2016
This article originally appeared on Money
Up to 122 million Americans plan on doing some Cyber Monday shopping, according to the National Retail Federation. If the projections hold up, it will be a record high.
So how are the prices? Well, like every Cyber Monday, there are always some truly compelling bargains. Amazon continues to offer some of the special deals introduced last week for Black Friday, like the Fire tablet for only $33.33 (normally $50). There are also new short-lived promotions rolling out regularly just for Cyber Monday. Likewise, Walmart is promoting a range of impressive Cyber Monday deals, like a 32-inch Samsung 4000 Series LED TV for $148 (normally $420) and up to $210 off trampolines.
While these deals tend to be hit or miss, what makes Cyber Monday wonderful for shoppers is that so many retailers discount their merchandise across the board by 30%, 40%, even 50% off. In other words, if you've had your eye on a special item waiting for it to go on sale, today could be your lucky day—because virtually everything is on sale sitewide at the e-commerce operations highlighted below. Check them out, and try not to get caught shopping on the job. (Oh, and if you want to see how the discounts compare to last year's Cyber Monday, check out our old story.)
EXTRA 15% OFF
