People are asking when is Cyber Monday 2011. A lot of active shoppers now are searching for the best and ideal deals from Cyber Monday 2011. And for those who have not able to grab the chance of going to some giant stores during Black Friday 2011, this is your final chance now to take the opportunity to grab the Cyber Monday deals from different stores online. Check them out now.

Black Friday has always been the biggest shopping day of the holiday season and this year was no exception. In fact, this year was even bigger than last year, despite the struggling economy. The economy may be struggling, but it certainly didn’t slow any of the shoppers down. This year Black Friday Sales records were posted all across the country and may hint at successful Cyber Monday record numbers to come.

As it has always been on this shopping day of all shopping days, shoppers either stayed up late or got up super early to hit the stores, in search of the major Black Friday deals that are notorious for this popular shopping day. The day brought in a record breaking $11.4 billion dollars in revenue from retail purchases.

According to IBM’s Coremetrics, a tracking system that keeps track of 500 retailers in the apparel, health and beauty, home goods and department store categories in real time, the online industry was hopping during Black Friday also, with online purchases up 39.3% on Thanksgiving Day and 24.3% on Black Friday compared to 2010 sales.

Amazon’s strategy to tempt visitors with good deals on electronics, but not give them access to all deals at once, is a pretty smart trick to keep people returning again and again to the site where they could find even more items to buy.

Other Amazon deals that will be available at various times starting at midnight Sunday and continuing through the end of the week in Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals Store include:

  • Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5V 10.2 MP Digital Camera: $199 (save $150)
  • Pentax K-5 Digital SLR (Body Only): $999 (save $200)
  • Microsoft Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Bundle (includes Fable III and Halo Reach): $199 (save $100)
  • Nokia N8 (Unlocked): $299.99 (save $249)
  • Monster Diddybeats Headphones: $59.99 (save $89)
  • Up to 50 percent off select VTech electronic toys

Best Buy also is promoting its online Cyber Sale, which it says is Sunday and Monday, as opposed to Amazon’s weeklong event. Its carrot for shoppers is also different — if you spend $100 or more and use in-store pickup Best Buy will email you a $10 electronic gift card you can use online or in stores. Best Buy also doesn’t show you how much of a discount you’re getting when you put an item in your shopping cart, so it will help if you know the normal selling price of any items you might want to buy.
