Cyber Monday 2013
By Kaylie Brown
Monday, November 2, marks Cyber Monday for 2013. What is Cyber Monday? Cyber Monday is a shopping holiday very similar to Black Friday, except all of the shopping and is done online and it’s the Monday after Thanksgiving. Many do not know of Cyber Monday because it has just become popular in the past few years. Senior Katelyn Walter says, “I actually go Black Friday shopping and participate in Cyber Monday.” Walter also stated that Cyber Monday is definitely the better option because you don’t have to deal with the crazy shoppers, crowds, and you refrain from having to rummage through everything in the store. Cyber Monday creates an easy way out for the same Black Friday deals. Taking part in Cyber Monday could mean free shipping, as much as fifty and sixty percent off items, plus the opportunity to get early Christmas shopping done and get items before they are sold out.
Big stores like Target, that sell mostly everything you could want, will have the biggest sales this year. According to Target’s website, there will be sales on most of their merchandise, such as their clothing, electronics, movies, music, books, home décor, furniture, and much more. Toys will also be on sale on Cyber Monday if anyone wants to get a great deal on a Christmas present for a little sibling or cousin.
Cyber Monday for teenage girls is all about getting the expensive clothing at discounted prices. So what stores will have the best sales this year? In the past, stores like Urban Outfitters, Madewell, and American Eagle have had as much as 40% off if you spend over $150, and many other stores offer the same deals. Forever 21 has even had Cyber Monday celebrations where everything is 90% off! Cyber Monday is also a good time to buy from stores that aren’t local, like Tory Burch, who has had deals like 20% off of purchases that are $250. Some stores like H&M and J. Crew have certain codes you can use for deals that include free shipping and 25% off or more. To get codes and coupons, an app that would be helpful to download is Cyber Monday 2013. The app looks like a small orange present with a plug-in cord tied around it like a bow.
Don’t miss out on all of the great deals this year on Cyber Monday!
