Cyber Monday is quickly gaining momentum as a shopping deal with savings comparable to Black Friday. You can avoid swarms of aggressive shoppers rushing into stores, and enjoy deep discounts from the comfort of your home or office. Cyber Monday takes place on November 30th, 2020.
Malls vs. Online Shopping
Although online shopping has become more popular in the last few years, it still hasn’t caught on to the same extent as driving to the mall. If it did, we would slowly see malls closing up and going out of business. Quite the opposite is happening. More outlet malls are being built across America, and people still feel content to take the day, drive to the mall with family and friends and eat at the food courts. Malls are family-friendly places, with some having rides and arcades for the kids and movie theaters that stay open after the mall has closed.
Cyber Monday vs. Black Friday
Cyber Monday is observed as one of the biggest online shopping days in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Portugal, and Germany. An advantage that Cyber Monday has over Black Friday is supply and ease of use, as well as saving on travel costs to and from the mall. You can drive to the mall as early as 9 a.m. on Black Friday and find the best deals are already sold out. Online, the click of a mouse and a credit card can secure your purchase. A disadvantage to Cyber Monday is that you don’t get the instant gratification of having your item that day. You must wait for it to ship through the mail. Expedited shipping costs more but as an added incentive to buy online, many websites offer free shipping on Cyber Monday.
