RetailMeNot Shares Cyber Monday Deals and Survival Guide
Tuesday, December 10, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Friday might be in the rearview, but the savings aren't over quite yet. If you didn't quite finish your holiday shopping last Friday, don't fret! Cyber Monday is the day to shop from the comfort of your own home. While the discounts can be found across the board in a variety of categories, there are some items to pay closer attention to, as well as some to avoid all together.

Shopping and trends expert for RetailMeNot, Sara Skirboll, says, "The preparation before Black Friday is fairly similar to Cyber Monday. Before cozying up to your computer in your pajamas, make sure to have a list of who you are buying for, continue to research and price compare, and focus on the categories that will be at their deepest discounts; like clothing, some forms of electronics, and up and coming brands that are new to the market."

As shoppers get ready to scour the internet today, be sure to check out the following Cyber Monday deals and tips, and head to RetailMeNot to find a full list of Cyber Monday savings.

What to Buy on Cyber Monday:

    --  Clothing:  Large clothing stores have jumped on board the cyber train
        and in some cases, have historically offered up to 50% off sitewide. Now
        is a great time to buy those holiday gifts and prep for the winter
        months ahead.
    --  Laptops and Smart home devices: Older laptop models and smart home
        devices like Google Home and Amazon echo will be deeply discounted. This
        is also a great time for shoppers to purchase other items like baby
        monitors and security cameras.
    --  New Brands: if there is a new clothing brand, cosmetic line, or a small
        and trendy brand you have had your eye on, they will likely be
        discounting their items to get more shoppers on Cyber Monday. This makes
        for a great time to try a product that you might not otherwise want to
        risk buying full-price.

Deals to Look Out For:

    --  bareMinerals: Get 30% off with code CYBERSALE and free shipping with
        code GIFTNOW
    --  Bloomingdales: 25% off regular & sale items labeled "CYBER TAKE 25%
        OFF", and 50% off clearance labeled "CYBER TAKE 50% OFF"
    --  Bonobos: 35% off sitewide and free shipping with code LETSCYBER
    --  H&M: 30% off everything and free shipping
    --  Kohl's: 20% off holiday fine and silver jewelry with code JEWELRY20, and
        20% off with code 20FORYOU
    --  Macy's: Extra 20% off and free shipping on $25 or more with code CYBER
    --  Nike: 25% Off select styles using code CYBER
    --  Urban Outfitters: $10 off $50, $25 off $100, and $50 off $150

What to Avoid on Cyber Monday:

    --  Furniture: Retailers will likely be advertising deals at this time, but
        don't give into the hype. The best time to purchase new furniture is in
        January and the long 3-day weekends like Presidents Day, Memorial Day
        and Labor Day.
    --  Toys: Many shoppers want to use this time to get the latest and greatest
        toys as they see them, but the best deals can be found in the 2 weeks
        leading up to Christmas. Stores don't want to be overstocked with toys
        as they head into post-holiday season, so the closer to the holiday, the
        more discounted they will be.
    --  Fitness equipment: While it can be tempting to get ahead of your New
        Year's resolutions and purchase some new fitness equipment, the best
        discounts will be found in the new year.

Cyber Monday Shopping and Safety Tips:

    --  Start early or stay up late the night before: Early morning doorbuster
        sales last for a limited time due to a lower stock of inventory. Start
        your shopping in the early morning, or late the night before if you're
        looking for the best deals on specific items.
    --  Research and Price compare: Scour the internet for what's on your
        shopping list as some retailers might offer it at a better price or have
        better offers.
    --  Research shipping policies and fees and look into BOPIS (Buy Online Pick
        up In-Store): According to RetailMeNot research, 85% of shoppers are
        motivated to purchase with BOPIS this season to make their holiday
        shopping even cheaper and more convenient.
    --  Follow your favorite retailers: Follow retailers on social media and
        sign up for email newsletters and bookmark their websites. They
        oftentimes will share offers exclusive to their followers.
    --  Beware of email phishing: Be sure to not click on any links from senders
        you don't recognize to avoid spam, viruses and a security breach.
    --  Shop in incognito or private mode: While not a foolproof to mask your
        identity to retailers, it can open you up to deals not available to
        someone with your browsing or purchase history.
    --  Use cash back: RetailMeNot has cash back offers at hundreds of your
        favorite retailers that will get you money back in your wallet just
        after the holidays for a little something extra for yourself.
    --  HTTP and HTTPS: Before sending any personal information over the
        internet, make sure the website has "https://" at the beginning of its
        web address. The "S" at the end of HTTPS indicates that the website is
        secure and your information is encrypted, which makes it safe to enter
        credit card number or other personal information.

Happy Shopping!
