Yes, Cyber Monday deals are available for furniture and home furnishings too. It is true that they are more plentiful for electronics and clothing, but if you explore, you will find good deals for products for the home including furniture.
In case this is your first time Cyber Monday shopping, here's some background:
What is Cyber Monday?
The Monday after Thanksgiving was dubbed Cyber Monday by the National Retail Federation in 2005. Shop.org used it as a title for their press release and the term caught on. Over the years, Cyber Monday has become one of the biggest shopping events of the year for buying all kinds of goods online.
Cyber Monday became the highest spending day of 2010, and 2011 sales were up 22%. 2012 sales are predicted to increase by 12% over 2011. A trend is a trend. Not just confined to the U.S., the term Cyber Monday is also used by online retailers in other parts of the world including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and New Zealand to name a few.
How to Shop Cyber Monday
Shopping should never turn into impulse buying, so plan ahead. One of the smartest things you can do is to have a shopping list before you log on. Sign up for newsletters to become more informed. Check for coupons and free shipping offers to take full advantage of the cyber sales.
It is easier to find deals if you visit just a couple of sites and do your shopping through them, instead of searching on your own. There are so many different sites, and not enough time for most people. After all a lot of consumers will be at work the Monday following Thanksgiving and will either be shopping before work or lunch or coffee breaks.
CyberMonday.com. has a list of special offers and coupons, and there will be hourly updates. Other sites to explore include dealio and dealnews. dealnews also has a shopping app that lets you track deals from their site.
Shop for Furniture
And now on to finding Cyber Monday deals for furniture. One thing you have to remember, though: you may be able to find deals on furniture and other home furnishings not just on Cyber Monday, but days leading up to it, as well going beyond. This trend can be seen for Black Friday sales also.
Even if certain sales end, remember there will be other sales all the way up to January. This is the time of the year for clearance sales galore. The idea is to be able to buy something you need at a good price, not just to go shopping.
