US retailers are a weird mob. Over the Thanksgiving weekend they run not one, but two huge shopping sales for ravenous bargain hunters - Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you forgot to hit the online stores on the 25th, have no fear: many of the deals are still available and there's a stack more for Cyber Monday. Here are the best deals so far...
Note: This list focuses on tech only. Visit Lifehacker for the full list of Cyber Monday deals!
For many years, the shopping event known as "Black Friday" was run exclusively at physical retail stores such as Macy's, Target and Walmart. This resulted in online merchants joining forces for a shopping event of their own, known popularly as "Cyber Monday".
These days, almost all brick-and-mortar retailers offer deals over the internet too and the distinction between both events has blurred. This is good news for online shoppers who now get to take place in a four-day orgy of digital commerce.
As with Black Friday, we're sifting through the internet to bring you the best Cyber Monday deals you can actually get in Australia. Whether based locally or in the US, all featured retailers will ship to your address.
We'll be updating this page regularly with new, noteworthy deals, so keep refreshing this page for more bargains!
