Find out the dates, history and traditions of 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 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”.

Stay Safe Online

While looking for deals online, be sure to protect yourself:

  • Beware of ads on search engines or social media - Scammers advertise popular items at deep discounts but fail to deliver and steal your payment information.
  • Use legitimate apps - Download retailers’ apps directly from their website to be sure you have the real one. Scammers can create imposter apps to steal your payment information.
  • Choose credit over debit - Protect your right to dispute a charge by paying with a credit card.
  • Secure your internet connection - Avoid using public wifi networks when shopping online. Check the URLs (especially on the submit payment screen).
