About Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday (also known as Blue Monday) is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. It was created by retailers to encourage people to shop online.
As online shopping has become the most popular way to shop on Black Friday, the importance of Cyber Monday as a day to promote online shopping has diminished. Most deep discounts appear on Black Friday, though Cyber Monday remains popular for more tech-based gifts.
The first Cyber Monday took place in 2005, after a press release by consumer website shop.org was released by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman with the headline: “Cyber Monday quickly becoming one of the biggest online shopping days of the year”.
Typically, Cyber Monday is a strictly 24-hour shopping window but, much like Black Friday, some retailers’ discounts continue into the next few days leading it to be dubbed “Cyber Week”.
