The Difference Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday  January 25, 2016 – 05:48 pm

The Difference Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber MondaySometimes shopping during Black Friday can feel like betting on a prize fight. You plunk down all your money on a great pair of shoes, only to see their price get knocked down during a Cyber Monday blowout. But how can a shopper know what kinds of unadvertised, winning sales are just around the corner? On everyone's mind this season is the question of whether Thanksgiving, Black Friday, or Cyber Monday—or the span of time in between these holidays—will be the best time to shop for the specific items they want.

If you're tired of feeling like you've got long odds for finding the best Black Friday deals, then look no further. We studied the DealNews archives for the past two Black Friday seasons and found the best items to buy on each day throughout the shopping weekend. Use these rules of thumb while crafting your perfect, personalized Black Friday shopping game plan.

The Difference Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber MondayIt's important to keep in mind, however, that we only noted the categories that are strongly tied to particular days during Black Friday week. If a category isn't mentioned below, that doesn't necessarily mean there won't be good offers this year; it just means there weren't noteworthy spikes on a specific day. For an extensive look at the discounts we expect to see this year, check out our 2013 Black Friday Predictions piece.

Smartphones

Thanksgiving has the edge when it comes to sales on phones, apps, and accessories. In fact, based on sales from last year, we could see smartphone deals that yield a profit (via gift cards) as early as the Wednesday before Black Friday. Although on average we list the same total number of phone deals on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, we recommend that you do your smartphone shopping on Thanksgiving: 42% of all the phone deals that day in 2012 were sweet enough to be marked Editors' Choice, as opposed to just 31% of those listed on Black Friday. Moreover, we found 50% more Android phone deals on Thanksgiving. However, if you're looking for that elusive iPhone deal, then you're better off on Black Friday proper (see below).

The Difference Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber MondayHDTVs

Our research shows that HDTV deals are excellent on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but Turkey Day TV deals stood out in the last few years for two reasons. First of all, we tend to see more Editors' Choice TV deals on Thanksgiving: about 61% of our deals were marked as such. Secondly, these Editors' Choice TV deals are much better on Thanksgiving. On Black Friday, for example, we typically see TVs that are at all-time price lows for their model (i.e., the lowest total price we've seen on a specific Samsung 46" HDTV). Yet over the past two Thanksgivings, we've seen TVs at the very best price in their entire category (like the best-ever price for any Samsung 46" HDTV).

Gaming Items

When it comes to deals on video games, there's just no beating Thanksgiving. We saw 70% more gaming deals during the last two Thanksgivings than on Black Friday. The difference is even more astounding when it comes to Cyber Monday. On average, there were 229% more gaming deals on Thanksgiving than on Cyber Monday. Plus, about 67% of the video game deals we saw on the last two Thanksgivings were awesome enough to be marked Editors' Choice. However, don't expect any significant price lows on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One games or consoles; it's beyond rare to find discounts on new consoles during their first Black Friday.
