How did Cyber Monday start?

It’s difficult to trace back the true beginnings of Cyber Monday. Plus, there are multiple theories being thrown around as to who exactly coined the term and how it began picking up pace, especially in the UK.

Just like the phenomenon of Black Friday, Cyber Monday was a term coined in the US. Falling the Monday after Thanksgiving, it’s believed that it was established by hungry retailers who were keen to encourage shoppers to spend more money online after the lull in sales during Thanksgiving. Naturally, as more people shopped, bigger and better deals were being offered by retailers, encouraging even more people to part with their cash, and so on.

However, it’s also widely believed that the inception of Cyber Monday sales was thanks to eager customers wanting to start their Christmas shopping on the last payday before the big day. As soon as retailers cottoned on they decided they wanted in, and decided to slash their prices to entice thrifty shoppers to spend more of their hard-earned money.

Either way, it’s clear to see that Cyber Monday, following hot on the heels of Black Friday, has become a real contender in terms of unmissable discounts, huge price reductions and outstanding bargains. This year it’s set to the the biggest yet in the UK, with even more retailers such as John Lewis, Tesco, Currys and Amazon stepping up to the plate and offering huge discounts across departments. Now’s the perfect time to get online and take advantage of the immense online deals.

Cyber Monday in 2019

Today, Cyber Monday marks the end of four immense days of price drops, fantastic discounts and exclusive promotions. It’s not uncommon to see the best deals saved until Cyber Monday, trumping the usual adage that the early bird catches the worm. Expect to see additional discounts and even lower prices on a range of tech, fashion, homeware and premium beauty products this year.

While Cyber Monday may not be as well-known amongst unassuming consumers as Black Friday in the UK, it’s slowly but surely making a name for itself as an essential date in the shopping calendar. Last year, savvy shoppers spent a whopping £7 million on Cyber Monday alone, compared to £2.6 billion on Black Friday. Experts predict that 2019 is set to exceed records once more.

How many people will be shopping?

In terms of the sheer number of people shopping on Cyber Monday, a staggering 21.5 million people got online in 2017. This year, even more people are set to shun bricks and mortar stores in favour of online to take part in what’s come to be known as one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

This year’s figures also suggest that Cyber Monday could even overtake Black Friday as the biggest shopping event of the year in the UK. A survey by PwC estimated that online was overtaking in-store shopping on Black Friday in every age demographic. Six in 10 over-65s are turning their back on the high street to hunt bargains online, while shoppers under 25 spend just 25 per cent of their sale shopping time in store. One thing that’s certain is that these great deals will be kicking off the shopping season with a bang.
