The Cyber Monday 2015 deals on Nov. 30 include a deal of the day from Amazon which has a 48-inch Samsung 4K UHDTV for just $599.99. The deal might sound so-so on its own but includes an 80-Watt soundbar as well as cables and a surge protector as part of a bundle. It’s clear the world wide web’s biggest retailer is looking to up its game when competing with the likes of other HDTV and flat screen TV sales from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy or Target as all of these retailers are trying their best to entice customers. In particular, Best Buy is also trying to wow customers with their iPhone, iPad, HDTV and laptop deals.
According to a Nov. 29 Tech Media Source report, Best Buy’s week-long sale features the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, with an offer of $100 off if new customers get a two-year activation through either Sprint or Verizon. iTunes gift cards are offered at “Buy One, get 20 percent off,” while the iPad Air has up to $50 off select models priced from $399.99 to $449.99. The retailer is also offering $100 off a 40-inch Samsung HDTV, $100 gift card with purchase of a select Go Pro Hero 4 model and more in their Cyber Week deals online.
The Walmart Cyber sale has a 65-inch LG 4K TV for just $799, but their iPad Mini 2 deal continues to be one of the hottest. The popular discounted sale on the iPad Mini 2 started at the beginning of the month and is still available on Cyber Monday. The deal is for the 16 gigabyte model of the iPad Mini which features a nice retina display. Keep in mind that if storage is an issue, one might consider going for another deal on a different iPad with more storage somewhere else. Places to check into include Target and Best Buy, who both have been offering deals on these items along with gift cards.
Cyber Monday is usually penciled in on calendars for the Monday right after Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend. However, retailers including Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy started up earlier in the hopes that online shopping will be big. So far, that strategy appears to be working great as there are early reports that store sales figures are down but online sales numbers are up.
