It's nearly weird that Cyber Monday is still a thing. Some of the best travel deals we've found are 30 percent of full-price tours from G Adventures during Cyber Weekend and the more than 40 travel promo codes available at Cheap Caribbean. And while we know every site from Amazon to Walmart plans to discount many devices for the "holiday", they've yet to announce their official sales and seem instead to be waiting for Black Friday to pass. So, both are fairly similar, with the exception being you will see more hype surrounding Black Friday. As always, we'll be covering the sale extensively and will be bringing you the best Black Friday deals once they go live this weekend.

No. Although Cyber Monday and Black Friday have basically become the same thing, it's worth paying special attention to Black Friday deals.

As for Black Friday, it used to be an in-store-only, one-day only sale at brick-and-mortar shops.

Black Friday Sales: What you need to knowWhat is Black Friday?

A John Lewis spokesperson said that prices are matched throughout the year as part of its Never Knowingly Undersold commitment, meaning that when high street competitors run promotions its prices are lowered to match, and that the Black Friday period is no different. With savings both in-store and online, the item you want will most likely be discounted. If the gap is considerable - be sure to factor in the worldwide shipping and import duties - you can then decide if a deal is worth buying from India or not.

We compared this data with the price of the products on Black Friday itself.

87% of the products were the same price or cheaper than their Black Friday price at other times of the year. But if it's the very lowest price you're after, and you're not in a hurry, it may be worth holding off.

Walmart will offer sales on everything from 4K TVs to laptops. However, in the event that you're able to locate a massive deal on an unlocked phone, make sure you calculate shipping and import duties and compare it with the phone's local price in India before buying.

Glad you asked! We rounded them up below. And from the looks of it, Amazon Cyber Monday 2018 will be following suit with its own early start date and a multitude of can't-miss deals. Enjoy some early discounts (active now) this year and keep an eye out for price drops through Cyber Monday.
