Cyber Monday Tips

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 3 7

Being successful on Cyber Monday is based on having a plan of action.  Just like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is likely to create frenzy. In order to have the best experience on Cyber Monday consider some of these tips. 

Make A List of Items You Need

It sounds obvious but sometimes people forget the most obvious things when they are shopping. Take the time to figure out the items that you want to purchase. This is the time to think about making your electronics purchases.  One of the most popular items that is available on Cyber Monday is laptops and televisions. 

Use Your Resources

If you have multiple computers, it may be wise to use two computers during this time.  If you know that one offer is likely to be very popular you may want to keep one computer on that website and use the other computer to search for your other purchases.


Some offers are going to go fast.  It is extremely important that you research the offers before you start shopping on Cyber Monday.  Make a list of items and websites that you need to visit and the order that you need to visit them in.  Print this list and place it by your computer so that you will be able to check items off as you purchase them on Cyber Monday.

Time Zone Matters

On Cyber Monday you need to know the time that the offer will start and the time zone that the company uses.  Companies that are based on the West Coast may start their deals significantly later than those on the East Coast.  If you do not think about the time zone, you may miss out on a promising offer.


If you have friends or relatives that are also shopping on this day then you should combine your efforts.  One person could focus on one store and another person could concentrate on another store.  This will only work if you consider the limits that may be imposed at a store.

Buy From Stores that You Know

Cyber Monday provides the opportunity for good deals.  However, you may change your mind about a purchase after you make it.  As a result, you should always buy products from a store that you know.  This does not mean that the store has to have a physical location, but it does mean that you should choose a store that you are familiar with.  You do not want to regret making a purchase because you did not sufficiently research the store.

Use Credit Cards

If you have a credit card it is probably best to use one when shopping online.  There is a significant difference between using your debit card and using a credit card.  One difference is that a longer warranty may be offered if you use your credit card.

Use a Secure Location

It is very important to make sure that you use a secure location when you are buying your purchases. It is a bad idea to use the computer at your workplace to conduct your shopping on Cyber Monday.
