These Cyber Monday Deals Are Way Better Than Black Friday
Who needs long lines and crowded stores? On Cyber Monday, you can get all of your shopping done without changing out of your pajamas. And this year, the deals are pretty solid — Target, for example, has already given us a sneak peek at deals coming up this month with $10 sweaters and $1 gloves.
Don't worry, it's not all fashion. There are a ton of ways to save on all of the makeup and electronics you've been dreaming about. It's time to start strategizing, so that you don't miss the very best deals. Here's everything you need to know about Cyber Monday 2018.

When do Cyber Monday 2018 deals officially start?
Traditionally, Cyber Monday discounts start on the Monday following thanksgiving, which is November 26 this year. But each year, retailers are giving us more and more time to shop the marked down items. Last year, Draper James started offering Cyber Monday discounts three days before the official shopping holiday. And once Monday has come and gone, the party usually continues with deals occasionally being extended through the end of the week.
Which stores offer the best discounts during Cyber Monday 2018?
If you've seen any brands in the news lately that aren't doing too well, you can expect to see the steepest discounts coming from those brands. Why? This is the perfect opportunity for them to quickly move any excess stock.
And don't forget about online shopping giants — like Walmart and Amazon. Of course, they're known for great electronic deals and toys. (You can't forget about the kids.) But, believe it or not, we've found some pretty amazing clothes on Amazon in the past. And this year, the retailer is celebrating Cyber Monday for an entire week.

What are the best items to keep an eye out for during Cyber Monday 2018?
We've said it once, and we'll say it again: Black Friday is for electronics. Cyber Monday is for fashion. That glamorous coat you've had your eye, those shiny boots, that head-turning handbag ... More than likely, it'll go on sale during Cyber Monday. For example: Last year, Loft, Tommy Hilfiger, and Old Navy offered 50% off of the entire website. Yes, every. single. item. was half off. So make sure the batteries in your mouse are fully charged and keep your wallet nearby.
