The Hottest Cyber Monday Tech Deals And Sales In 2022
Dell laptops, Lenovo laptops, Google phones and Amazon smart home devices are on the slate for Cyber Monday discounts.
Without looking at a calendar, consumers might have a hard time distinguishing between the typical mega-discount events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Various retailers have been pushing the dates of holiday-time discounts earlier and later, giving shoppers more time to find marked-down technology from laptops to mobile devices to smart home technology and wearables.
This Cyber Monday, CRN has put together a list of some of the more impressive discounts, although some of the items are marked as discounted for Black Friday. Some retailers have not yet laid out specific discounts in the name of Cyber Monday—or they may skip “Cyber Monday”-specific markdowns altogether —while others, such as Google, have holiday discounts going past Cyber Monday into December.
What’s for sale on Cyber Monday?
That being said, the savings that have impressed CRN this year include:
The items include computers from Dell Technologies, Lenovo, HP Inc. and Microsoft. Smart home items with impressive discounts include products from Amazon, iRobot and Petcube. And discounts on wearables are available for offerings from Apple and Sony.
Here are some impressive Cyber Monday deals you should watch for.
