While Black Friday has long been known as the busiest holiday shopping day of the year, it has found itself in a bit of competition ever since Cyber Monday came along.

But it gives shoppers the chance to shop away from the crowds in the comfort of their own homes.
While this mega-deals shopping day is prime for buying everything from electronics to furniture to clothes, we're on the lookout for the incredible kitchen deals that pop up year after year, and we’re ready to score big on cookware, small appliances, serving pieces, and more. Bottom line, you'll snag massive bargains just in time for gift-giving.

When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday falls on November 29 this year. Consistently, Cyber Monday takes place the Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, which means its date is variable from year to year. However, plenty of brands have started extending their sales through the following week, but as long as you plan ahead, you can snag all the items on your list during the big day.
Does Cyber Monday Have Better Deals Than Black Friday?
Ultimately it depends on your shopping habits and preferences. For those who generally prefer to do their shopping online (whether for convenience, safety, or to avoid impulse buys), Cyber Monday will be a clear winner every time. But many do still enjoy that in-person thrill of finding a sale on Black Friday and grabbing the item you’ve been waiting on.
Trae Bodge, The Smart Shopping Expert, adds that Cyber Monday 2020 saw $9 billion in online sales at an increase of 21.6 percent from 2019. Even though more people will feel more comfortable returning to stores this year, Trae expects that online shopping will continue to be strong. “Black Friday sales tend to be on specific items, where Cyber Monday sales are broader,” she added.
What Sales Should You Look Out For?
Cyber Monday is a prime time to shop for everything from small countertop appliances to large kitchen items like fridges that often come with a higher price tag. Plus, smaller hot-ticket items like air fryers or table decor and dining sets are great items to look for, since they can often get pricey outside of these sales windows.
What Products Are On Sale Now?
Several retailers are running early Cyber Monday sales right now, so it’s never too early to take a peek. Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite products on sale right now to help you save big before Cyber Monday.
