Hi to all,

Further to the thread on "Black Firday" - there seems to be "a Cyber Monday" as well -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyber_Monday

Has anyone ever heard of this I must admit it was new to me :?:

Regards

Hi Fishnchips,

I must admit I hadn’t heard of it either – until I got an email from Amazon this morning telling me about it - It seems to be “Cyber Monday Week” ;)

Hi Dave, Hi Fishnchips,

... a bit like putting the Christmas goodies in the supermarket shelves after the summer holiday period ;)
Seems to me to be one of those customs adopted for business purposes - cultural education via retail :lol:

Calling the Monday Cyber seems to suggest it's mainly about electronic goods - what do others think?

Cheers

Hey Laura77,

As you have probably learned by now, assuming you read the article that Loftbewohner nicely referred to, Cyber Monday isn't really about electronic goods but rather online shopping, with the crazy sales often limited to the Monday following Black Friday.

Cheers,
Yama

Hi Yama,

gotcha! The "Cyber" in "Cyber Monday" is referring to online (i.e. cyber) shopping, and is not necessarily limited to cyber goods.
Although the net is flooded with offers for computer goods ;)

Cheers
