Cyber Monday is now gearing up to be bigger and better than ever, as literally anything can be done via the Internet these days. It started when consumers in America sought to avoid the mayhem on Black Friday and switched to shopping online instead.
Retailers started taking notice of a period when Internet use increased dramatically just after Thanksgiving holiday in America in the early 2000s. By 2005, the Monday spike in online sales was termed as what is now called ‘Cyber Monday’.
This benefits us all from across the globe as we ride along on the shopping wave. These days, it has even evolved to become ‘Cyber Week’ — more cheap deals for the ‘kiasu’ in you.
Here are some of the irresistible deals we have rounded up:
