Cyber Monday Deals and Sales 2019: Everything You Need to Know

Cyber Monday will officially start on December 2. However, just like Black Friday deals have launched way ahead of Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday deals will likely start earlier than ever this year. And with 2019's shorter holiday shopping season, retailers have more incentive than ever to start their Cyber Monday deals asap. 

There's another important factor shoppers need to take into account ahead of Cyber Monday. On December 15, a new round of Trump tariffs will kick in, taxing popular holiday gifts like 2019's best phonesbest laptops, best tablets, and game consoles. While we're not sure if retailers will take the financial hit themselves or pass it on to consumers, we do recommend you buy your holiday gifts before the taxes go into effect. 

If it all sounds stressful and complicated, don't worry. We're here to tell you everything you need to know about 2019's best Cyber Monday deals. Whether you're looking for the best TV deals, best Apple deals, best laptop deals, or the latest Disney Plus deals, we've got all of your bases covered. We've created the ultimate Cyber Monday deals survival guide for your shopping needs.

Cyber Monday deals and U.S. tariffs

Heads up, shoppers. On December, 15, a new round of Trump tariffs will go into effect. The 15% tariffs will affect laptops, tablets, and game consoles. While it's anyone's guess how the tariffs will affect Cyber Monday deals, we predict retailers will heavily discount these categories on Cyber Monday (to avoid the December 15 taxes). Bottom line: If you spot a good Cyber Monday deal on a device you want, don't hesitate to buy it because it may not be as cheap post December 15. 

Cyber Monday deals to set new record in 2019

Cyber Monday is expected to shatter records in 2019, according to Adobe Analytics' Holiday Forecast 2019. The report states that Cyber Monday will become the largest — and fastest — growing online shopping day of the year with $9.4 billion in sales, an 18.9 percent increase year over year (YoY). 

The report also states that online sales between 7pm and 11pm (PT) — the golden hours of online retail — will drive over $3 billion in revenue. What will consumers be shopping for? Adobe's holiday forecast predicts Nintendo Switch deals will be in high demand along with Cyber Monday deals on games like Pokemon Sword and Shield and Call of Duty Modern Warfare

Cyber Monday deals for Disney Plus

Disney Plus is a new commercial-free streaming service that gives subscribers access to Disney's epic entertainment catalog. The service launched on November 12, but already there are a few noteworthy Disney Plus deals you can take advantage of. You can even get a free year of the service with this Disney Plus Verizon deal. We expect to see more Disney Plus discounts as we get closer to Cyber Monday, so you'll be watching The Mandalorian before you know it. 

Cyber Monday deals at Amazon

Amazon is the king of Cyber Monday deals. Last year, Cyber Monday was the single biggest shopping day in the company's history. Sure, they said the same thing about Amazon Prime Day, but year-after-year Cyber Monday proves to be the stronger shopping day for Amazon.

Last year's best-selling Cyber Monday deals at Amazon included the Echo Dot, AncestryDNA: Genetic Testing Kit, Bose QC 25 Headphones, and the InstantPot Duo 60. In terms of deals, Amazon offered its Echo Dot for $24, Fire TV Stick for $34.99, Ring Floodlight Cam for $249, and Echo Spot for $89.99. The retailer also took 30% off LEGO toys, 50% off Nerf/Hasbro, and 30% off home decor items.

Look for similar discounts this year, although we predict Amazon devices will be even cheaper since many of them hit new price lows on Prime Day. You can see Amazon's confirmed Black Friday device deals here and then compare them with Amazon's Cyber Monday deals. 

Cyber Monday deals at Walmart

Last year, Walmart Cyber Monday deals kicked off at 12:01am Monday. This year, however, is going to different. The retailer kicked off an Early Deals Drop sale on October 25. The sale offered a mix of early Walmart Black Friday deals along with some deals we had seen all summer long from Walmart.  

As a result of Walmart's early Black Friday sale, we predict Walmart's Cyber Monday deals will start earlier than usual as well. In fact, they could start as early as the evening of Black Friday.  

A few Cyber Monday deals from last year include: PS4 Pro for $349 (we predict a $299 price point this year), Xbox One S for $189 (we predict a $149 price point for this year), and Google Home Mini for $29 (we predict a $22 price point for 2019). In fact, the Google Home Mini is already on sale now at Walmart for $25.

Cyber Monday deals at Apple

The Apple Store isn't know for its Cyber Monday deals. In fact, it wasn't until 2018 that Apple started offering Cyber Monday deals. Traditionally, Apple only offered "deals" on Black Friday. But last year it extended its annual sale into Cyber Monday. The sale itself was weak, however.

The Apple Store offered from $25 to $200 Apple gift cards with the purchase of select devices. An Apple TV, for example, scored you a $25 GC, whereas buying a new iMac would get you a $200 GC. If you want dollar-off discounts, your best bet is to turn to Apple-authorized resellers like Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. Those three retailers undercut Apple prices anytime of the year. (You can also follow our best Apple deals guide for the latest Apple discounts).

This year, with the new AirPods Pro, we predict we'll see record low AirPods Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday deals. Expect major retailers to take $20 off the new AirPods Pro, whereas others like Rakuten may slice $50 off. But act fast, discounts we see on the new AirPods Pro will likely sell out fast. For instance, Amazon had them on sale for $15 off, but the sale was over in a flash. 

Cyber Monday deals Week?

For the past two years, we've seen retailers try to extend their Cyber Monday deals buy calling them Cyber Week deals. There is no such thing as Cyber Week. That term is being used by retailers to encourage consumers to continue shopping well after Cyber Monday ends. 

However, keep in mind that Cyber Monday isn't the end of the holiday shopping season. After Cyber Monday, you have roughly two more weeks to shop for the holidays. The best deals will occur over the 5-day period that begins on Thanksgiving (some call it the Turkey 5), but if you miss a deal it's likely it'll be offered again before Christmas. It's not guaranteed you'll get the same price, but generally speaking — it won't be that far off. 

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is a term created by the National Retail Federation to describe the first Monday after Thanksgiving. In 2005, the NRF  —  an organization that represents retailers, chain restaurants, and grocery stores — celebrated the first Cyber Monday in an effort to encourage people to shop online. 

At the time, Black Friday was largely an in-store shopping holiday, so online retailers were left out of the picture. Cyber Monday, however, was created to let online retailers play a bigger role in the holiday season. 

So initially, the made-up holiday was intended for online stores only. (Think Newegg versus a big-box retailer like Walmart). As online shopping grew in popularity, so did Cyber Monday. Today, Cyber Monday is essentially a free for all where both online and big-box retailers offer a second round of steep holiday discounts. The emphasis on online-only stores isn't as strong, since most big-box retailers now have a strong online presence.
