What is Cyber Monday?
Do you realise the great deals you can make on Black Friday? And Cyber Monday, which comes the Monday following the Friday of Black Friday in Switzerland, is the same thing, even a level above when it comes to discounts and crazy promotions. We warn you now: expect slashed, completely irresistible prices.
2 December 2019 : The CountDown is live!
There are two small differences between Black Friday and Cyber Monday:
Traditionally, if Black Friday lasted a single day, the labels and brands extended the party to last several days. Manor proposed “3 Special Black Fridays” and offered Black Friday over three days and the La Redoute site offered a whole week! Cyber Monday only lasts 24 hours. The start of this incredible day of shopping is set from midnight until 23:59 on Monday, December 2, 2019.
Cyber Monday is an unmissable shopping event. It allows even more great deals. And if you are like us and you never get enough, you will not miss this opportunity!
Whereas Black Friday takes place in the stores as well as online, Cyber Monday is mostly e-businesses. No need to go out since all sales are made on the Internet. Which between us is rather convenient.
Last year, just before the start of Cyber Monday, the computer company Adobe had predicted $6.6 billion in total spending worldwide during this online shopping day. A mind-boggling sum making this big day the largest online sales day in the history of the web. And rightly so.
When is Cyber Monday 2019 ?
Black Friday 2019 is over, hooray for Cyber Monday 2019 ! If you thought the bargain hunting was over with the end of Black Friday, you’re wrong.

History and origin of Cyber Monday?
Unlike Black Friday, the history and origins of Cyber Monday are much more recent. Just to let you know, the name and idea were imagined in 2005 by a marketing team of the site Shop.org. The publication, in which the concept of “Cyber Monday appeared for the first time, was titled “‘Cyber Monday’ Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”.
The idea of this new day devoted to great deals? To bring shopping fans to shop more on the net rather than in the stores that had experienced record turnout for Black Friday. Bingo! Since that day, and thanks to ever more appealing discounts and events offered by brands, distributors and other labels, online sales have exploded on Cyber Monday.
