Why is the Monday after Thanksgiving (in the US) called Cyber Monday?
I don't get it?
Good question, can't wait to see the answer. I was wondering about that yesterday.
Cyber Monday marks the beginning of the online shopping season. This is the online retailers answer to "Black Friday". Although being significant to online only businesses "brick and mortar" retailers with websites also take part in Cyber Monday deals.
Online retailers have massive sales. It's a follow-up to our "Black Friday". There are certain deals that you (supposedly) can not get otherwise. Usually, there are discounts on shipping and bonuses (like, spend $25, get a free 'something'), as well as the sales.
In my opinion, it's pretty much a ploy to boost consumerism, but is supposed to be a way to save money on gifts & kick-start the Christmas season.

I've seen a lot of hubs on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I've done several myself. I actually had it flagged because it was categorized wrong. I think that brings up the issue that we don't have a specific hubtopic...
