Cyber Monday 2017: 25 Hot Tech Deals Worth Checking Out

The Best Of Cyber Monday

Thanksgiving has come and gone – although your turkey-induced food coma may still linger – which means holiday shopping season is upon us. While brick-and-mortar stores will enjoy plenty of foot traffic on Black Friday, thrifty shoppers looking to avoid the frantic crowds would be wise to search for deals on Cyber Monday.

The Monday after Thanksgiving, known as Cyber Monday, is the biggest online shopping day of the year for U.S. businesses. Tech powerhouses and retail giants like Microsoft, Dell, Walmart and Best Buy are among the many companies that have crafted killer specials for consumers looking to buy from their couch. CRN has found plenty that fit the bill.

Some retailers have released their Cyber Monday deals early, and some are extending their Black Friday deals throughout the weekend. Others are releasing special deals at different times throughout the day to entice those surfing the web for deals to stay on their sites.

For those looking to catch the best online deals this Cyber Monday, CRN has compiled a list of 25 of tech deals worth considering.
