Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

First of all, Black Friday is more popular than Cyber Monday. On Black Fridays, better discounts are usually offered than on Cyber Mondays, especially regarding technologic items. For example, there is a $200 discount on the Microsoft Surface Pro, however, it was $400 cheaper last black Friday.

Cyber Monday is better for fashion retail. During 2013 and 2014 Cyber Mondays the clothing deals almost doubled the deals on the clothing of Black Fridays. The same thing was perceived regarding shoe deals.

Therefore, the sales are not in general as good as the ones in black Friday but there are still amazing options and discounts for those Christmas gifts, you don’t want to miss.
