The Best Time to do Your Christmas Shopping

If you have not quite finished
Christmas shopping this weekend just gone was probably the best time to get
some last minute deals. We had Black
Friday and now today its Cyber Monday and another series of generous discounts
and offers, double check your inbox and you might start to notice them.

Black Friday I was aware of its highly published and built
up in the media, my inbox on Friday was awash with deals for that particular
day from just about EVERY company I have ever subscribed to emails from, it was
hard actually spotting my blogging opportunities amongst all the sea of

Black Friday was meant to mark
the start of everyone’s Christmas shopping and lots of Americans would book a
day off especially to do that; mind you most of mine were already bought and
wrapped by then! I am particularly
organised this year, I don’t know quite what has come over me…

If I am honest Cyber Monday is a
new one on me, although it does sound like its growing quickly in popularity
and to be frank I am quite happy for another day of discounts regardless of
what they decide to call it or what day it falls on. You can read more about these special days in this Black
Friday V’s Cyber Monday article
detailing more about their origins and the
impact of them on the UK market, with research provided by some of the
facts are quite enlightening so well worth a read.

Cyber Monday was coined because after thanksgiving
many were logging on to the Internet and having a renewed flourish of online
spending! But looking at my inbox I see
less than a handful of Cyber Monday emails. 
I think though they are both still good dates to be aware of and next
year I might try and time the main bulk of my Christmas shopping around them,
there is no point being organised in advance if it means I am paying over the
odds for my Christmas purchases. I do
prefer shopping online so hopefully Cyber Monday will keep growing to match
Black Friday.
