What is Cyber Monday in Switzerland?

Cyber Monday, which began in the United States in 2005, has become a global online shopping event, taking place on the Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday. It was due to an increase in sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving that retailers decided to create an exclusive day of online-only promotions. Cyber Monday has quickly grown beyond its American roots, becoming a global phenomenon. Today, Cyber Monday in Switzerland has become a shopping tradition in the same way as Black Friday.

Cyber Monday was initially seen as the digital counterpart to Black Friday, which focuses on in-store purchases. Nowadays, the event represents a more refined alternative, offering the convenience of online shopping, far from the frenzy of physical stores.

When is Cyber Monday 2024 in Switzerland?

Just like its big brother, Black Friday, Cyber Monday is traditionally celebrated on the Monday following Thanksgiving in the United States. Thus, the date of Black Friday and the date of Cyber Monday vary each year, but the two events always take place at the same time. In 2024, Thanksgiving will take place on November 28, so Black Friday 2024 will take place on Friday, November 29 and Cyber Monday will be on Monday, December 2, 2024. It is the same for Switzerland as for many countries, because Cyber Monday is generally observed on the same date around the world.
