Cyber Monday 2022 is sure to be a huge money-saving event this year. Cyber Monday is the traditional online sales shopping day that follows the Black Friday (opens in new tab) weekend, so you will have a full 4 days to shop this year's sales.

Last year's Cyber Monday sales suffered from global supply chain issues, but as those issues are now more or less cleared up, the Cyber Monday 2022 sales are shaping up to be the biggest ever.

As Black Friday and Cyber Monday come after Thanksgiving, we already know what the 2022 dates will be. Black Friday will take place on Friday 25th November and Cyber Monday will follow on Monday 28th November, so mark these on your calendar.

At T3, we've covered the Cyber Monday sales for over half a decade, so we're pretty confident that we can find the best deals from the sales event and can also identify which sales aren't worth it, too!

In this guide, we detail everything we already know about Cyber Monday 2022, including our top shopping tips for the event and the best deals you can find on a range of products from an array of popular retailers.

When is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday 2022 follows the Black Friday weekend on Monday, 28th November. For US shoppers, it's a key date as it's the Monday after Thanksgiving, but countries around the world now participate in Black Friday and Cyber Monday every year too.

Despite Cyber Monday having a fixed date, the deals will typically start to drop early to get shoppers excited, so expect the Black Friday sales to begin around two weeks ahead of Black Friday 2022, from Friday 11th November. As always, we'll keep you up-to-date with the latest deals and when the sales drop, so make sure you bookmark this page.

What will the best Cyber Monday deals be in 2022?

As Cyber Monday is directly after the Black Friday sales, we imagine a lot of the Black Friday price drops will still be available on Cyber Monday. Of course, we can't know for sure yet what is going to be discounted this Cyber Monday, but below are our best predictions.

As Cyber Monday is more tech-focused than Black Friday and have been for years, we anticipate many consumer tech deals, including TVs, laptops, tablets, speakers, headphones and monitors. Other than that, large appliances will probably have special Cyber Monday deals, so keep an eye out for low prices on washing machines, fridge freezers, dishwashers, ovens, hobs, microwaves, coffee machines, kettles and toasters.

Going off of what did well last year, gamers will definitely be involved in the Cyber Monday sale. In 2021, we saw some amazing PS5 gaming deals from a variety of retailers and there were PS5 restocks (opens in new tab) in both the UK and US.

Finally, we'd also expect to see streaming service deals (opens in new tab). Last year, NOW TV had 40% off in the Cyber Monday sale so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for something similar in 2022.

The history behind Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday was coined in 2005 (opens in new tab) and used in the ecommerce community during that year's holiday season. Research had shown that one of the biggest online shopping days of the year was actually the Monday after Thanksgiving, with analysts putting this down to the fact that people returned to work where they had access to the internet.

It sounds funny now in 2022 that people would have to wait to shop online, but back in 2005, many people did not have access to fast home internet and online shopping was nowhere near as developed as it is now.

Since then, Cyber Monday has grown into a massive online sales event. This year, Black Friday 2022 is being tipped to be the biggest event ever, so there will be plenty of opportunities to bag top deals, and we're sure to see further price drops on Cyber Monday.
