Thanksgiving and Black Friday have just passed us by, which only means one thing — Cyber Monday is just around the corner. This year consumers can score some of the hottest deals on the most popular technology items around as stores pull out all the stops to keep the Black Friday madness going online.
Black Friday 2016 was a resounding success, with early reports calculating a 13 percent rise in spending from the same day in 2015. Much of that spending was done online, and with record breaking web sales, retailers are firing up a slew of new deals to keep customers shopping on Mon. Nov. 28, and we've got our annual best Cyber Monday tech deals for 2016 to help pick the best bargains.
5. Samsung 65" 4K Ultra HD LED Smart HDTV : $999 At Walmart
4K HDTVs have dropped in price considerably over the past year, and Samsung is one of the top premium brands. Walmart has got you covered this Cyber Monday with this mega sized 4K set at over half of the usual $2,199 retail price.
4. Xbox One S Gear 1TB Console + Xbox One Controller White + Xbox One Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: $299 At eBay
eBay has some of the best Cyber Monday deals this season, especially when it comes to gaming consoles. Shoppers can pick up this 1TB Xbox One S bundle for $299, $50 off of the usual price. That's a deal you can find at other retailers, but what makes this eBay deal special is the inclusion of an extra game and additional controller at that price.
3. Inspiron 14 3000 w/ Intel Celeron processor, 2 GB Memory, 32 GB Storage: $129 At Dell
Budget laptops are always in demand at the holiday season and this notebook from Dell is going for just $129 on Cyber Monday, almost half off of the usual $249 price.
2. PlayStation 4 Pro Console + Watch Dog 2+ Street Fighter Bundle: $399 At eBay
eBay also has a great deal on the just released PS4 Pro. The bundle itself usually goes for $499, and due to the newness of the console, deals on it have been scarce so far this holiday, except of course this one online which is the best discount on the new PS4 Pro so far.
1. 15% Off Almost Everything Including All Apple Devices And Accessories: Target
Our best Cyber Monday deal of all for 2016 isn't exactly a deal — it covers an entire store. That's because Target is once again offering an extra 15% off almost everything on its website for Cyber Monday this year, and that includes most technology items including Apple's current iPads and iPhones. The sale actually starts one day early this year, on Sunday, in the hope that bargain hunters don't almost crash the retailer's website again as they did last year.
