Cyber Monday is November 27 in the US, but the deals have already started a week early. Below is a list of the best Cyber Monday deals for 2017.
We’ve scoured the web for the best online deals before the official Cyber Monday time and date at stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart and more.
You can scroll down to see the latest rollback prices from major US retailers on 4KTVs, cheap laptops, and consoles like PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Yes, the Nintendo Switch is finally in stock on Amazon and GameStop, and we’ll point you in the right direction.
Cyber Monday, sometimes called Cyber Week, tends to peak from Saturday. And it goes all the way to midnight on Tuesday. But, this year, with so many early deals happening right now, it’s become a month-long deals-fest.
We’ve already found more than a few early Cyber Monday ad leaks from top US stores like Dell, eBay and Newegg. What’s that mean? Well, put PS4, Xbox One and large 4KTV sets on your immediate shopping list, because they’re now on sale ahead of the holidays.
Not sure where to start? That’s where we come in since finding the best Cyber Monday deals can be overwhelming. With so many price drops happening all at once, it’s not easy to know who is offering you the lowest prices, with Best Buy, Toys R Us and Target competing all weekend long. It’s a game of savings one-upmanship if there ever was one (though this is good for those seeking competitive low prices).
Then there’s the issue of seeing items sell out quickly. Considering Cyber Monday this year will be the biggest shopping day in US history, according to several analyst predictions and last year’s Adobe Digital Insights numbers, you’re in for more than you bargained for.
That’s why we’ll keep a close eye on all the Cyber Monday 2017 deals at the usual stores, starting today and right on through Cyber Monday.
When is Cyber Monday 2017?
Cyber Monday 2017 is November 27 this year. If you couldn’t tell, that date is a Monday. It’s always the Monday after Thanksgiving, which is also always the Monday after Black Friday.
The concept of Cyber Monday itself isn’t as old as Black Friday; the term “Cyber Monday” was first coined in 2004, but since then has become a huge deal on its own, expanding outside of its US origins.
The weekend of Black Friday and Cyber Monday isn’t just significant for sales – it also represents the beginning of the holiday shopping season. It usually helps to have some idea of your holiday shopping lists before the weekend so you can take full advantage of all the sales at your disposal.
However, deals come in hot and fast on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and you’ll no doubt find great savings on tech and other items you didn’t even know you wanted.
Cyber Monday 2017 predictions
Now that you have an idea of what’s already on offer, you can probably imagine the amazing deals that will be available this year. From the latest phones to smart home devices to speakers and more, here are the best Cyber Monday 2017 deals we expect to see.
iPhone 8 and iPhone X deals
We can expect Cyber Monday 2017 to do for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X what Cyber Monday 2016 did for the iPhone 7. From mobile carriers offering BOGO deals or credits for installment plans to retailers chopping the price and tossing in freebies, there may not be a better time to buy the iPhone 8 or iPhone X. If you do see a sale, don’t expect it to last long.
Apple Watch 3 deals
The iPhone 8 and iPhone X weren’t the only big announcements Apple had for us in September. It also introduced the Apple Watch 3, the first iteration to feature its own cellular connection. With a price tag of $399, getting to feel like Dick Tracy doesn’t come cheap. But you can rest assured that Cyber Monday 2017 will offer up discounts or deals to make the new smartwatch a far more compelling buy.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 deals
Android users won’t be left in the dark when Cyber Monday 2017 rolls around. Samsung already has shown the kinds of killer deals it’s willing to offer on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note, and those weren’t even during Cyber Monday. Expect big discounts, especially on the Galaxy S8, and free mobile accessories thrown in.
PS4 Pro deals
The latest and greatest version of Sony’s PlayStation is the PS4 Pro, and it’s expected to feature heavily in Cyber Monday 2017 sales. In fact, we’re all but sure it will be since during Cyber Monday 2016, we saw a ton of deals for its predecessor, the PS4 Slim. Most notably, PS4 Pro Cyber Monday deals will include can’t-miss bundles, complete with controllers, accessories, and games.
Xbox One X deals
The Xbox One has undergone a transformation; Microsoft’s so-called Project Scorpio has been revealed as the Xbox One X, and it’s quite a console. Not only does it feature full 4K gaming, but it also already has a massive 22 games to play, including titles like Forza 7, Anthem, and more. At launch, the Xbox One X price is $500, but you can expect it to be a lot cheaper and bundled during Cyber Monday 2017.
Nintendo Switch deals
A bigger focus will be placed on Nintendo this year as the company has finally unveiled the Nintendo Switch console. The Switch features a ton of great games, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but by the time Cyber Monday rolls around you can bet there will be a lot more ready to play, including Super Mario Odyssey. Expect some serious Nintendo Switch deals this year. The SNES Classic will likely pop up in deals as well, but you should expect it to go quick.
Everything with Amazon’s Alexa smart assistant
Amazon loves putting its line of inexpensive Fire tablets on sale, and it has frequently dropped the price of its Echo and Echo Dot devices, all of which feature Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa. And given Amazon’s dominance of the online market place, you can safely bet that it’s going to put its products front and center on Cyber Monday 2017 with hot deals that make them hard to resist.
4K TV deals
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have traditionally been great times to buy TVs, and this year will be no different. From LG to Samsung to Toshiba, expect massive deals on the best TV technology. You’ll get huge discounts on 4K TVs, as well as lower-resolution TVs such as 1080p screens, so no matter how much you’re willing to spend there should be a TV set for you.
Cameras may not be as heavily featured as TVs on Cyber Monday, but that doesn’t mean they don’t see solid savings later in the year. DSLR cameras from the likes of Nikon and Canon, as well as GoPro cameras, will all get eye-catching discounts, namely through retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and more.
If you’re looking for a new daily driver in terms of a computer, then Cyber Monday is a great time to go shopping. As we mentioned, last year there were lots of discounts on gaming laptops, but whether you’re into gaming or not you’ll be able to get a laptop for much cheaper than you otherwise would. That includes discounts on Apple’s range of MacBooks, including the MacBook Pro, standard MacBook, and more.
From Beats to AKG, there are sure to be plenty of sweet savings on headphones. This year, the so-called “true wireless” form factor is a little more popular, so it’s expected we’ll see discounts on those headphones from the likes of Apple and Samsung. If you’re more into over-ear and on-ear headphones, you’ll still get access to plenty of discounts, so keep an eye on Amazon for those.
