Cyber Monday is the Monday immediately following Thanksgiving in the U.S. Cyber Monday is considered to be the start of the online holiday shopping season.
The day is similar to Black Friday except the focus is online retailers offering special promotions, sales, coupons. It gives shoppers a chance to avoid crowds,
parking problems and long lines while finding the best deals from the comfort of home or office. Advertisers will often offer "loss leaders" of items sold at or close to cost to attract buyers.
Usually these items will be offered in limited quantity for only a few hours.
