What is Cyber Monday?
From Wikipedia: “Cyber Monday is a marketing term that refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday being the busiest day of the year for retail electronic commerce. The term was created by the National Retail Federation.”
Why Partake in Cyber Monday?
Yes… I am a HUGE opponent of shopping for things you don’t need.
But I am also a HUGE proponent of shopping for things you do need… especially when they are on sale!
Since I am not a huge fan of Black Friday, partly because of the commercialism, unnecessary purchasing, and unbearable crowds… Cyber Monday is looking like a much better option.
If you NEED things, are interested in getting them at BARGAIN prices, and want to do so in the COMFORT of your own home… head on over to the Cyber Monday Amazon.com sale now.
