It’s the end of November, and you know what that means: Black Friday is winding down and has made way for Cyber Monday.

Although deals have been dropping since the beginning of the month, Cyber Monday isn’t just the dregs of the sale, as we often see extra discounts added and new items added to the sale, whether it’s home appliances, toys, beauty products, televisions or smartphones.

And for those of you who like to live your life online – guilty as charged – Cyber Monday couldn’t be more up your street. No physical queues, in-store fights or nightmare parking – it already sounds like a win.

We’ve also explained everything we know about finding deals on the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch, which is expected to get an even bigger discount this time around, following the release of the new Nintendo Switch OLED.

    What is Cyber Monday?

    When Black Friday was exclusively a brick-and-mortar shopping event, online retailers wanted a slice of the highly-profitable cake, so they came up with Cyber Monday.

    Taking place right after Black Friday, this day began as the online equivalent, with web retailers like Amazon slashing prices and quickly turning the day into the biggest online shopping day of the year. But, as online shopping has grown, the whole event is of course online too.
