We all know that Black Friday and Cyber Monday mean big savings and the opportunity to get a jump on holiday shopping — with many deals already available before you carve the turkey. As you’ve probably noticed, many Black Friday deals already started this October and Cyber Monday deals might be available for a whole week.
Does one save you more than the other? Not really. The big advantage of going inside a store is if being in-stock (or selling out online) is a concern.
Black Friday deals do occur over a holiday weekend so that is a plus! Cyber Monday technically kicks off the week when people are back to work. Note that some retailers might continue a sale on Cyber Monday if they sold out in stores with their Black Friday offerings.
