Forget Cyber Monday--It’s Cyber Week!
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but there are plenty of deals to be found.
Cyber Monday may have come and gone, but the deals aren’t done. Many retailers have extended this one-day event into a full week (or more) of bargains. Here’s a roundup of what some of the biggest online retailers are offering to lure shoppers in throughout this “Cyber Week.”
Walmart is offering free shipping on orders over $50 and free store pick-up.
The discount retailer has plenty of items on sale all week, ranging from toys and kitchen appliances to TVs and laptops. One especially good deal we spied at Walmart.com: The entry-level HP 15-f222wm 15.6" Laptop. Walmart is offering it for $279, a very good price for a touch-enabled laptop. Its specs are basic, as it offers 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive, but it could be a great starter machine or Chromebook alternative.
Amazon is calling this entire week “Cyber Monday Deals Week,” and is releasing new sale items throughout the week–in fact, Amazon says it will be adding new deals as often as “every five minutes” all week long. Some of those deals are limited by time and quantity, so it may be worth checking the site frequently, or at least perusing Amazon’s list of upcoming deals and those that you have missed.
Some deals also are for Prime members only, so if you haven’t done so already, now may be the time to try out Amazon’s Prime service.
Many of Amazon’s best deals are on Amazon’s own products, but you can find good prices on other products, too. The first-generation Garmin Vivofit is on sale for $39.99, $10 off its typical price on Amazon. Rivals like Walmart are still charging $49.99 for this wearable, which tracks steps and distance traveled.
The Vivofit is similar to a Fitbit, but it’s waterproof and boasts a battery life of up to a year, making it a great wearable for kids–especially when it costs under $40.
Dell is offering a its own Cyber Week Deals Sale, with up to 50 percent off outlet PCs and free shipping. Dell is offering daily coupons on select outlet PCs, and is only releasing the coupon codes when they’re usable. The PC maker also is offering deals on PCs, laptops, and electronics throughout the week, but some of its best deals are limited by quantity.
Dell’s Inspiron Micro Desktop PC, which packs a full desktop computer into a truly tiny bundle, is available for just $129 while supplies last, but as of this writing, this deal as more than 90 percent claimed.
Best Buy is promoting cyber deals throughout the week as well, but notes that some deals are only available as long as supplies last. BestBuy is offering free shipping through December 24, and, as of this writing, has some good deals still available.
One of those is a Best Buy exclusive version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet, with a 7-inch screen and 8GB of storage. BestBuy.com has it in silver for just $89.99, about $10 to $20 less than what similar Samsung tablets typically sell for. BestBuy.com is offering a free six-month subscription to Titanium Internet Security with this purchase.
