UPDATE: It's officially over for 2020, but there are still many hot deals being offered by retailers. We've checked availability for those listed below, though we won't be updating this page further. Until next year!
Welcome to T3's Cyber Monday 2020 guide. The team will be updating this page with the best deals we can find. Here too, you'll find a selection of Black Friday deals that are still happening.
ear is going to be a big one for Cyber Monday deals. This is because due to 2020's unprecedented challenges, which have hit retailers all around the world very badly, every major store of note is taking more of its deals than ever before online.
We're expecting sales to be live everywhere, offering discounts on things like 4K TVs, Nintendo Switch consoles, iPhones and iPads, Android smartphones, smart home tech, appliances, gadgets and much more besides. The T3 team will be keeping track and posting the best deals we find for you right here!
While in the US, Cyber Monday started off as a separate sale event by itself – predominantly held online – it's harder to separate from Black Friday in Australia. Americans are treated to brand new deals on that day, but Down Under, Cyber Monday is still very much a part of the Black Friday sale period. It's rare to find retailers offering fresh new Cyber Monday-specific deals, but it has been known to happen.

When is Cyber Monday 2020?
Cyber Monday 2020 is on Monday 30 November, the Monday immediately after Black Friday.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday, as a term, was created in 2005 by the American National Retail Federation to describe the phenomenon whereby the Monday after Thanksgiving saw massive increases in online shopping throughout the United States.
Without doubt, Cyber Monday became a thing off the back of Black Friday, the super sales day that runs the day after Thanksgiving. And today Grey Thursday, Black Friday, the Black Weekend and Cyber Monday are largely indistinguishable from each other.
Many theories exist as to why online sales began to spike on the Monday, but most point to the fact that many shoppers quickly lost their appetites for physical Black Friday deal hunting, and instead preferred to wait and shop at their leisure after enjoying time relaxing over the Thanksgiving weekend.
In Australia, Cyber Monday is just starting to catch on. Last year's event was a big one and we fully expect shops to increase the momentum by offering many outstanding bargains.
What is the difference between Black Friday 2020 and Cyber Monday 2020?
When Black Friday first started, which was termed thus as it statistically is the day where online sales for Christmas gifts really spikes, there was a clear distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Now, however, as noted above, the distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is basically non-existent, with crazy deals and discounts on all product categories taking place not just on both days, but also either side of them, too.
One major difference between the two sale days is geographical interest. In the United States Cyber Monday is a MUCH BIGGER EVENT than it is anywhere else worldwide, with even other English-speaking countries seeing nowhere near the same appetite for online shopping.
At the end of the day, though, so many people are now comfortable shopping online that Cyber Monday is going nowhere, regardless of what it is actually called. Last year's Black Friday was the biggest sales day, for example, that Amazon has ever run, with hundreds of quality deals winning shoppers over.
