We predict the best Amazon Cyber Monday deals later this year
It's never too early to start thinking about which Amazon Cyber Monday deals might be in store. During the pandemic last year, Jeff Bezos' online marketplace ripped up the retail rule book, pushing back Amazon's annual Prime Day sale from its usual July slot to October. In doing so, the company sparked the launch of the holiday sales period earlier that ever, with plenty of US retailers quickly bringing their own holiday sales forward in retaliation.

By the time Amazon's Cyber Monday sale officially started at the end of November, we'd seen hundreds of discounts across the site. Nevertheless, its Cyber Monday discounts were good: despite claiming that its Prime Day pricing in October would be the lowest of the year, the company brought back many of its best deals on Cyber Monday. We saw some of the retailer's own devices, in particular, returning to their lowest-ever prices.

So what about this year? We're expecting some exceptional discounts at Amazon when Cyber Monday 2021 comes around, on November 29. The event - which is traditionally dedicated to online shopping rather than physical shopping - falls directly into Amazon's wheelhouse as the world's largest online retailer, and every year the company seeks to make the Amazon Cyber Monday sale bigger and better.

Amazon is capable of meeting the demand of eager online bargain hunters, and this year, once again, we expect to see some seriously competitive pricing in the aftermath of Black Friday.

Amazon's Cyber Monday sale typically covers a wide gamut of products, from tech - TVs, laptops, smartphones, headphones - to home and garden items, baby products, food and drink, fitness and more.…
