Here’s What to Expect During Amazon’s Cyber Monday Sale
Overwhelmed by the idea of holiday shopping IRL this year? Same, so we’re planning to do the bulk of our shopping online. And apparently, so is the rest of the country: Retailers are anticipating possible shipping delays as we get closer to December 25. That’s why we’ve decided to stock up on as many gifts as possible during this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Judge us all you want, but we’ve already filled our Amazon cart with potential presents (plus a few items for ourselves) and we suggest you do the same.
What is Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale going to look like this year?
While Amazon hasn’t released its official plans for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020, if last year is any indication you can expect deals starting as early as November 23. In 2019 the mega retailer held a Black Friday Deals week that extended through Cyber Monday. But unsurprisingly, some of best deals were limited-time offers on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Don’t want to wait? You’re in luck, because the site has been releasing daily Holiday Dash deals for a couple of weeks now and will likely continue to do so until its Black Friday offerings roll out.
Here, ten items we’re hoping to see on sale over the next few weeks.
2. Amazon Fire TV Cube
If Amazon Alexa and Fire TV had a baby, it would be this brilliant little cube. Stream Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, YouTube TV and more without ever having to touch the remote. Yup, you can also ask Alexa to tell you the weather or play your favorite playlist just like an Echo speaker would.
3. NuFace Advanced Facial Toning Kit
Get lifted cheekbones and a more sculpted jawline without having to set foot in the dermatologist’s office.
4. Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Stick Vacuum
A vacuum isn't exactly an exciting Christmas gift. Unless it's a Dyson vacuum. In other words, your mom will be over the moon when she unwraps this powerful cordless model.
5. Apple AirPods with Charging Case
We can pretty much guarantee that at least one person in your life wants AirPods this holiday season, so you might as well stock up now. Normally $159, we’ve seen them go on sale for as little as $99 over the past couple of months. Fingers crossed the price drops even lower on Cyber Monday.
6. Fitbit Versa 2 Health & Fitness Smart Watch
In all honesty, it'd be easier to tell you what this smart watch doesn't do, but here are some of its most exciting features: it tracks your heart rate, steps, distance walked, calories burned, active minutes and floors climbed throughout the day. It also gives you a daily Sleep Score based on your heart rate, time asleep and restlessness so you can better understand your sleep quality over time. Plus, you can get calls, texts and app notifications when your smartphone is nearby. Yeah, go ahead and keep this one for yourself.
7. Kindle Paperwhite
Tired of paperback towers overtaking your nightstand? Same. Enter: the Kindle Paperwhite. It can store thousands of books at a time and the glare-free display looks like real paper even in bright sunlight—so no blue light-induced headaches here. This specific model is also waterproof, so you can read at the beach, by the pool or in the bathtub without worry.
8. Casper Sleep Element Queen Mattress
If you’ve been looking for the perfect balance between softness and support, look no further. Casper’s bed-in-a-box Element mattress is made from pressure-relieving foam that cradles your body—without too much of that sinking feeling.
9. NutriBullet Pro Plus
Our current blender has seen better days, and we’ve heard NutriBullet is the way of the future. Here’s hoping one goes on sale so we can treat ourselves.
10. Orolay Women’s Winter Coat
Did you really think we’d leave the infamous Amazon coat in 2019? Not a chance. Psst, it’s already on sale.
