What can you expect from Cyber Monday 2021?

Now that Black Friday is over, what can we expect from Cyber Monday and the rest of Cyber Week? Unlike Black Friday, which started largely as a brick-and-mortar phenomenon, Cyber Monday began as the e-commerce alternative to the biggest shopping holiday of the year and an “alternative to the madness” of the large crowds and long lines, said Jessica Young, director of research data at Digital Commerce 360, previously told us. So it comes as no surprise that Cyber Monday claims the top spot for online spending: Last year, Cyber Monday was the largest online shopping day in U.S. history and raked in $10.8 billion in online spending, according to Adobe Analytics.

The trend continues this year: Adobe predicts Cyber Monday will be the biggest online shopping day of 2021, with online spending reaching anywhere between $10.2 billion and $11.3 billion. And shoppers are expected to shatter records with their holiday spending this year, too — the NRF reported sales during November and December will grow between 8.5 percent and 10.5 percent over last year.

But even with record-breaking spending statistics, Marshal Cohen, the chief industry advisor of The NPD Group, doesn’t expect Cyber Monday to be as busy as previous years as a result of higher competition and earlier shopping due to global supply chain issues.

“A big thing to keep in mind is retailers have been promoting Black Friday since the beginning of October, and in particular online, so we’ve had Cyber Monday turn into Cyber Month,” said Cohen. He noted that a “more civilized” Cyber Monday is good news for shoppers because there are less site crashes and more hope that merchandise will still be available despite low inventory across retailers.

However, as experts previously told us, you should take advantage of good last-minute deals as quickly as possible, especially as lingering supply chain challenges could bring them out of stock before the holiday shopping season is over. Most Cyber Monday deals also won’t last very long, and many are expected to end towards the beginning of the week, according to Cohen.

“If you’re willing to be flexible and buy maybe a different brand, different color or a different model of a product, you’re not going to have a problem [finding it in stock],” said Cohen. However, “if you’re very specific about what you want, or what somebody else wants, I would advise getting it as soon as you can find it,” he added.

What to buy during Cyber Monday (and what to avoid)

Several sales marketed toward Cyber Monday are simply extensions of or very similar to those hosted on Black Friday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t score some of the steepest discounts of the year. The categories that dominate on both shopping holidays are almost always the same, according to Kristin McGrath, editor at RetailMeNot. According to Adobe’s Digital Economy Index, shoppers will see heavy discounts on sporting goods, apparel and TVs during Cyber Monday, while Cohen noted that toys and small appliances will also see “very good” discounts during Cyber Monday.

McGrath said shopping for fashion and apparel during Cyber Monday is a smart move. “Clothing retailers often trot out sitewide promo codes for Cyber Monday,” she said. “So if you’re shopping for clothing in general, rather than a very specific pair of boots, shop on Cyber Monday and get an instant discount on your entire cart.”

Tech is traditionally heavily discounted throughout Cyber Monday, so if you missed out on tech sales during Black Friday, retailers will likely “reshuffle the deck of their Black Friday discounts and deal them back out for Cyber Monday,” McGrath added. That means “laptops and gaming PCs are front and center” at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Dell and Lenovo, said McGrath. She added other tech like Apple iPads, Samsung Galaxy phones, iPhones and MacBooks will also see price cuts during Cyber Monday.

As for the rest of Cyber Week, both Cohen and McGrath don’t expect Cyber Monday deals to last through the week, especially after shoppers have been getting their holiday purchases earlier than ever this year. Retailers will generally advertise “extended” or “one more day” sales and deals that they released on Cyber Monday rather than launch brand new deals, according to McGrath. That means it’s smart to get in early rather than hold out for better deals late in Cyber Week. One exception is holiday items: Retailers “might drop prices on holiday makeup palettes, treat tins and decor near the end of Cyber week to entice shoppers to buy if they still have more than they’d like in stock,” McGrath added.

Despite the large array of sales, some items can wait. Notably, holiday merchandise will be heavily discounted after the holidays and retailers usually offer better deals on large appliances and mattresses during Labor Day, Memorial Day and other holiday weekends, according to McGrath.

And if you’re very flexible about gifts, shopping at the last minute later in December can be strategic because “that’s when retailers will unload holiday items, games and toys,” McGrath added. That is, if those products stay in stock that long.
