Cyber Monday seemed to have forgotten its identity as many online retailers decided to jump the gun and start it a couple days ahead. Even Black Friday this year seemed to have begun in October according to Amazon. The race was on to start online sales well before Cyber Monday this year; Amazon began its Cyber Monday deals on Saturday. Toys “R” Us was next — kicking off sales Sunday at 8 a.m. And Walmart started Cyber Monday on Sunday at 5 p.m.
Best Buy and Target are staying true to tradition, however, launching their Cyber Monday deals today.
