ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CYBER MONDAY

It’s that time of the year when your mailbox gets flooded with many 50% to 60% offers, you know it’s Cyber Monday. I love Black Friday, but the thought of squeezing among hundreds of people in a store and queuing for an hour in the cashier line scares me. I would rather stay at home, sit comfortably on a couch, have a glass of wine while browsing as many online stores as I like. With that said, I prefer Cyber Monday than Black Friday. Not only it’s more convenient for me, but also it gives me more choices. Some sites even give an extra percent off which makes the deals even sweeter.

With all the awesomeness that I mentioned above, there are still some downsides to it and some real struggles too, for instance: “Which website has the best sales?”,  “How to shop more effectively?” (Browsing hundreds of pages on a website is so time-consuming, I feel you), and more importantly, “How to control your spending?”. From my personal experiences, I’ve come up with an ultimate guide on Cyber Monday that helps me get through the sale madness. I thought it might be useful for you too. So here we go!

An early plan

“Plan early” means “save money early” to me. Cyber Monday is a once-a-year opportunity to treat yourself. If you know that you will be spending money on this day, you’d better start saving for it. The sooner, the better. A savings plan with $100 a month will give you $1200 after 12 months. You can buy many things with that money, can’t you? What if you want to buy luxury items? The answer is simple. Save more!

A wish list

Everyone has a list of favorite things to buy, especially when you are a Shopaholic. I have way too many lists that I don’t even remember. Seriously, having a list of items that you’ve been eyeing on for a while will save you time from spending hours in front of the computer. Besides, it helps you stay focused. There are way too many temptations and distractions online. You know what I mean. Here is my current wishlist.

A filter

Another tip to save time and to control your budget is using “Filter.” Instead of looking at hundreds of pages on a website, you can narrow down your choices with some simple clicks. I love how Farfetch even has a price range and sales discount filtration.

A code

While many websites offer Cyber Monday sales with no code required, others offer private sales to their subscribers and VIP list only. Some even give an additional percent off on all sale items, which is what we’ve been waiting for. If you are thinking “where can I get these promo codes?”, you are at the right place. Here is a full list of websites with great Cyber Monday sales that I’m a fan of. From A to Z.
