Cyber Monday: Too Little, Too Late?

The sales this year have been deeper than ever!

A shopoholics paradise, mall stores like New York & Company posted Black Friday signs in their window dressings that read “50% Off Entire Store!”

Meanwhile, outlet malls like Potomac Mills opened up at midnight the day after Thanksgiving, while online retailers got a head start by offering deals way in advance of Cyber Monday.

With deals like the ones mentioned above… and the online super sales listed below (some of which debuted a week or more before Black Friday)…

Do you think that Cyber Monday is becoming obsolete?

Just a few of the pre-CM deals that posted early:

  • 70% off all sale items and 40% off select new items if you click here.
  • Grouponicus: Daily 50% off holiday deals sent to a subscriber’s inbox or by going to Today’s Deal.
  • New York & Company: 50% off everything through the end of Cyber Monday if you click here.
