Everything you need to know to prep for the biggest sales of 2022.
Thanksgiving is fun enough to look forward to and plan for on its own, but for some shopping-savvy civilians, the main event is the day immediately following the turkey-fueled holiday: Black Friday, aka the year’s biggest shopping event, and Cyber Monday, perhaps the second biggest. And when it comes to savings, there’s no such thing as too much prep work. The early bird gets the worm, and the early Cyber Monday shopper gets a brand-new TV at a crazy steep discount.
Gone are the days of standing in line in the wee hours of the night, then frantically scrambling through a big-box store. Not only is brick-and-mortar shopping physically taxing (and becoming extinct, incidentally), but it’s a little unnecessary now that most sales have gone digital. You do, however, need to be mentally prepared to hunt down the best deals.
So mark your calendars now: Cyber Monday falls on November 28 this year. Until then, we suggest tabbing your favorite shops and adding items to your e-carts now, so you can watch the prices rise and fall over the next week.
Below, we rounded up the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales we found so far, including some that start before the holiday and other educated guesses based on patterns from previous years. Make sure to check back as we continue to update our list with the latest on all things Cyber Monday.
