Best Buy seems like an obvious destination for Cyber Monday sales, but what do you need to know to nab the hottest deals? Read on to learn what you can expect at Best Buy for Cyber Monday.

Is There a Best Buy Cyber Monday Ad?

Best Buy puts out a Cyber Monday ad, and judging by past years, you can expect it to be released the day before Cyber Monday. This year, that's Sunday, December 1.

When Does Cyber Monday Start for Best Buy?

In 2018, Best Buy kicked off its Cyber Monday sale on Sunday and kept it running for the whole week. This year, that would make the likely dates December 1 to December 7.

When Is the Best Time to Shop?

With the online sale starting on Sunday, it's in your wallet's best interest to shop early. That way, you'll have a better chance of snagging inventory before it sells out. However, Best Buy's sale isn't restricted to just Sunday and Monday — a number of deals will hang around all week.

Best Buy will also likely have daily deals during Cyber Week, and it's worth checking the site early every day to see what's being offered. You don't want to miss out!

How Do Best Buy Cyber Monday and Black Friday Sales Differ?

The biggest difference between Best Buy's Black Friday and Cyber Monday events is that the latter lacks multiple days of early access sales, as well as in-store-only doorbusters. Generally speaking, you can expect both sales to feature similar types of items. We may even see some Black Friday deals return during Cyber Week.

What Best Buy Cyber Monday Deals Will Be Available?

Last year's Best Buy ad was filled with deals on electronics of all types, but TVs were the headline deals, taking up most of the space in the first few pages of the ad. One excellent offer was a Westinghouse 50" 4K smart TV for $200, one of the lowest prices we'd ever seen for a 50" 4K set.

We may see some Black Friday deals return during Cyber Week.

Laptops were another strong category — a couple of Staff Pick deals on laptops from Best Buy were active on Cyber Monday. (Staff Picks are offers we consider the "best of the best.")

Best Buy also offered a wide variety of deals on smartphones, although the best deals generally required activation on specific carriers.

Other categories to watch include small appliances, movies, tablets, and streaming media devices.

In general, you should be prepared to shop fast, and to jump on a good deal when you see it. Sunday and Monday should be the best days to shop, having more deals than other days during Cyber Week. Quantities of in-demand items will likely be limited.

Remember that Best Buy's site can experience slowdowns on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday due to high traffic. You might have to refresh pages several times in order to add an item to your cart and then check out. Try to be patient.
