Just because the chaos of Black Friday is finally winding down, it doesn’t mean there aren’t still deals to be found. Cyber Monday, has become almost as big a day for deals but has traditionally focused on bargains you can find online.
While this has often been from leftover stock that stores needed to shift, Cyber Monday deals are also great for items that the Black Friday shoppers wouldn’t have thought to buy.
On Black Friday you’d likely see swarms of shoppers rushing to buy big-screen TVs, laptops and gadgets, and by Cyber Monday they’ve got them all unboxed, set up and ready to use them to shop for even more deals.
Let’s start with the most obvious: Cyber Monday broadband deals. Most of the gadgets that hardcore shoppers will have purchased on Black Friday will end up being connected to their home broadband. More gadgets –– everything from new iPhones and laptops to smart hubs and streaming sticks –– means a bigger strain placed on your home broadband and more bandwidth being used up than you might be able to spare.
Almost all the UK’s top broadband providers cottoned on to this early, and often save some of their best deals of the year for Cyber Monday. You could get discounted ultrafast broadband from Virgin Media, or bundle together superfast broadband with digital TV from Sky — all for far less than you would at any other time of the year.
Check out our Cyber Monday broadband deals to see how much you could save.
