Cyber Monday became a popular custom in the US when retailers began offering their best deals of the year online on the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend. Cyber Monday’s biggest difference from the traditional Black Friday shopping day is that online shoppers don’t have to wait in lines outside of a store and literally fight others to get a product they want. Instead, shoppers can enjoy great deals without the crowds and without leaving the comfort of their own homes or offices.
