Cyber Monday

Black Friday/Cyber Monday vs Boxing Day

It appears that the Good Friday and Cyber Monday sales may be winning over Boxing Day sales in Canada and the U.k. But if you’re looking for Christmas merchandise and deep discounts on electronics, the later may be preferable.

Basically, people are using Black Friday and Cyber Monday to score gifts and Boxing Day for personal purchases, sweets and impulse purchases of overstock products.

I’ve personally stocked up on chocolates using my Canadian Tire money and Optimum Points at Shopper’s Drug Mart because nothing beats free, discounted chocolates. And I also for deep discounted Christmas themed air fresheners free using loyalty programs cause I own a cat and I happen to like pine and cinnamon/gingerbread. ๐Ÿ™‚

The boxing day sales are all week on Amazon.ca and Indigo so i’m keeping an eye out for stuff I might need in the new year. And the dollar’s stronger so I’m also looking at the year end deals are available on Amazon.com.

I’ve already imported what I wanted from the U.k, the Deluxe version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tango In The Night“. But decided to wait for the 30th Anniversary boxed set of Def Leppard’s “Hysteria” and Queen’s “News Of The World” 40th anniversary boxed set. I’m hoping to score those later, hopefully during one of these sales.

I’ve also just run into this whilst browsing today, which is incredibly tempting regardless of the fact that I pretty much already have everything that’s included on this boxed set.

Decisions. Decisions.

Cyber Monday

Looking through the Cyber Monday sales there still appears to be a few good deals to be had from Amazon.ca, its international counterparts, Best Buy Canada, Barnes & Noble, Indigo, NewEgg Canada, Second Spin, Sonos Canada and other retailers listed on my previous blog entry so i’ll be busy shopping around today.

I’ve already found a significant drop in price for the Deluxe version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tango In The Night” and will be keeping my eye out for other deals. ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, to offer free same day deliveries to more Amazon Prime members, Amazon would likely need to build more fulfillment centres in or near the other major metropolitan areas in Canada.

They just happened to have fulfillment centres within the Greater Toronto and Greater Vancouver areas and that’s why members in those areas are able to take advantage of the free same day shipping offer.

I don’t think they will expand free same day deliveries elsewhere in Canada anytime soon, unless they decide to open a fulfillment centre in or near Mirabel (to service Montreal and Ottawa/Gatineau) and/or Red Deer (to service Calgary and Edmonton).
