Amazon was the top retail site on a record breaking Black Friday. Not exactly a surprise, but we can also expect similar results for Cyber Monday, which Amazon began participating in at midnight.
That's when Amazon opened its Cyber Monday Deals Store. Through the store, Amazon is offering thousands of limited-time deals.This includes items like televisions, digital cameras, home theater speaker systems, laptops and other computer hardware, Kindle books, toys, vacuums cleaners, yoga kits, synthesizers, wine sets, and all kinds of stuff.
While the deals may be limited-time, Amazon is offering deals through the Cyber Monday Deals Store throughout the entire week. The deals are, however, offered individually at various times throughout the week.
“We know our customers love shopping on Cyber Monday and finding top deals on gifts for everyone on their list,” said Craig Berman, Vice President, Amazon Global Communications. “We’re excited to offer customers the best prices on popular gift items this season and an easy, stress-free holiday shopping experience – nothing beats the convenience of shopping from anywhere at any time, whether it’s on a PC at work, in line for coffee or lounging on the couch with the Kindle Fire HD.”
I'm not sure employers will be too keen on that shopping from work part, but I would imagine that won't be stopping many deal seekers. Let's not forget that people are giving birth and leaving their babies unattended in Walmarts just to get some deals on merchandise (both stories found on reddit over the holiday weekend).
