Cyber Monday deals 2017: how to find the best tech bargains

Cyber Monday 2017 is on November 27 and we’ve been saving our pennies to splash out on some awesome tech. This year’s edition is set to provide an epic amount of incredible deals and you can find out where to get the best possible deals right here. 

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is one of the biggest shopping days in the calendar. Coined by retail research company, Cyber Monday is viewed as the beginning of the holiday shopping season. You’ll be able to find some of the best tech specials anywhere.

Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday delivers huge savings and discounts on thousands of products from many of the biggest retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart and Target. You’ll also be able to find deals from some smaller retailers. We here at AndroidPIT are getting into the spirit too. We have some hand-picked deals on our homepage, so be sure to check them out.

When is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday 2017 falls on November 27: the Monday after Thanksgiving and three days after Black Friday.

How is Cyber Monday different from Black Friday?

The difference between these two shopping days is characterized largely by consumer behavior. More people will shop on Black Friday, but tend to spend more on Cyber Monday. There are also differences in terms of the products and deals available, but both days turn up huge savings on electronics, apparel and entertainment products.

US deals this Cyber Monday 2016


Amazon is the king of going all out for its Cyber Monday event. Among last year’s stellar discounts, it sold the Moto G (4th Gen) 32 GB model for only $ 189 (Originally $ 229.99). Could this year see the return of significant savings on Samsung phones after 2016’s conservative offers? Amazon also gave out some ridiculously low prices for its Fire Tablet devices. Will we see Amazon’s newly updated Echo products on sale in a big push to win over smart home early adopters?

We’ll see. Check back for updates to the Amazon Cyber Monday 2017 landing page to keep up to date on the incoming deals.

Sprint already has some pre-Black Friday/Thanksgiving deals up on its website, which includes some of the hottest phones of the year. It’s offering the iPhone 8 for $ 0 per month with the iPhone Forever lease plan, and 50 percent off both the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Essential Phone.

Its current promotions include buy one get one free smartphones, $ 300 in credit when you trade in a Samsung Galaxy and a 32 GB iPad for just $ 99 when you buy an iPhone.

Last year, T-Mobile gave away free flagship smartphones for Black Friday. While there’s no Black Friday deals page posted yet, the current deals are available here. Right now, there are promotions for $ 300 in bill credit when you buy an iPhone 8, 3 months of free service for your Apple Watch Series 3 and a free Samsung Galaxy smartphone when you buy a Note 8.

Smartphone manufacturers’ deals

Black Friday deals aren’t live on any of the major smartphone brands’ websites yet. We will keep an eye out and inform you of any holiday promotions as they come about. There were great deals last year and we expect the same this year from all your favorite manufacturers, like Google, OnePlus, Samsung, Huawei, Sony, LG, Motorola, HTC and even Apple (just not from the Apple Store itself, of course).

Amazon Prime

For those of you who want a seamless, one-stop shopping experience, there’s Amazon. I highly recommend investing in Amazon Prime membership for the early Black Friday notifications and benefits like two-day free shipping. Plus, you get video and music streaming access. It’s only $ 10.99 per month.

Last year’s big event brought us “more deals than Black Friday” and the launch page has already confirmed a bunch of deals. To help you navigate the online storage and find the best tech bargains from the sale, AndroidPIT is here. 

What is Amazon Prime Day?

The inaugural Amazon Prime Day on July 11 will mark the 22nd anniversary since Amazon’s launch when its website first went live selling books (it’s strange to think that there was a time when Amazon didn’t exist, isn’t it?). To celebrate, Amazon is offering you big savings on tons of hot products.

What is Amazon Prime? 

In order to get the excellent deals from this special day you need to be an Amazon Prime member. Now, being a member has its benefits well beyond being able to join in the Amazon Prime Day sales festivities.

With an Amazon Prime membership you’ll get free next day shipping on any purchase through Amazon Prime, and most common items on the site plus free same-day delivery on select items. You also get access to over one million songs with tons of playlists and stations. You can stream popular movies and TV shows for free including original content from Amazon like Alpha House. And for you avid readers out there you can enjoy over 800,000 free e-books.

An Amazon Prime membership is only $ 99 per year. But you can sign up for a free 30 day trial of the program now risk-free and get access to this year’s Amazon Prime Day event. Head over and give it a try, signing up is quick and easy.

What are the best Amazon Prime Day deals? 

You can head over to Amazon’s Prime Day landing page to check out some of the current offers available exclusively to Prime members. We’ve also hand picked some of the best deals and you can get them at the links below. We’ll be updating this page throughout the day so be sure to check back.

What are Amazon Prime lightning deals?

Amazon’s lightning deals are offers which usually last for only several hours and can arrive from every product category. You’ll have to act fast to cash in on them, but Amazon’s dedicated shopping app can be set up with push notifications so you never miss a bargain: find out how to set these up here.

What are Amazon Prime Day spotlight deals? 

Amazon’s spotlight deals are where you’ll find the biggest saving on top brands. These offers run until they are out of stock, and they are best deals you’ll find on Prime Day.

You can join Amazon’s Prime Day Facebook group for more details on upcoming deals. Note that they will cover all categories, not just technology and gadgets but other deals are great to have.

Can I do Amazon Prime Day shopping without an Amazon Prime membership?

Sort of. If you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership, then your best option is to grab a 30-day Amazon Prime free trial. If you’ve done this previously and your trial’s expired, another option is to find a family member who’s an Amazon Prime subscriber and ask to join their Amazon Household account.

A cheap – but not free – method of joining the Amazon Prime Day extravaganza is by being a student, in which case you’re entitled to get an Amazon Prime membership for 50 percent off the usual price.

What are Lightning Deals?

Lightning deals are great bargains that are posted at the last minute on Amazon and are only available for one to two hours. The catch with these, of course, is that they are often so juicy that they are snagged up in a matter of seconds. The prices are made public only after the offer gets under way and are not disclosed in advance.

But here’s a cool tip: Amazon Prime customers get to see offers 30 minutes early. Lucky them! So don’t be too surprised if the offer is sold out in the first minutes, or even seconds, after the deal starts.
