Best Buy Cyber Monday advice
Thanks to its online nature, Cyber Monday doesn’t have the same nightmarish stampede at Best Buy’s doorways as Black Friday has been known for. Unfortunately, too many people trying to get to Bestbuy.com at the same time can result in you not being able to find the product you want and press the buy button. Try to find some backup retailers to buy from if you know what you want, so that internet congestion doesn’t ruin the day.
You can also try using a VPN to get around an endless loading screen in your browser. This will help you route your internet connection through a server in a different part of the country, where Bestbuy.com servers might not be as busy. This could let you make your purchases while everyone else in town spends Cyber Monday clicking their browser’s refresh button.
If you want to be sure you’re getting the best price online before you press the buy button, check out TechRadar’s Pricehawk Chrome extension. It allows you to compare the prices between multiple retailers so you can decide where to buy for the best Cyber Monday deals.
For those shoppers on the prowl for very specific products, make sure you know the exact model number of the product you want before hand. Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday come with a load of deals and special products that can trip you up. For example, if you’re looking for a 55-inch LG 4K TV, you might see a half-dozen different models that are 4K and measure 55 inches, but they could use different screen technologies or offer widely varying features. If you know exactly which model you want in advance, you can avoid being blinded by the lower price tag or greater discount on what may be an inferior product.
Lastly, when you find a product you know you want, don’t be slow about getting it. Inventory levels are your worst enemy on Cyber Monday. If you’ve had a webpage open for a while, the listed inventory may be lower than you see on your screen. And if you let items sit in your cart for too long, it’s possible you’ll find they’ve sold out when you go to make the purchase. Don’t be impulsive, but do plan early so you can act fast.
