Love them or hate them, the holidays are upon us. While they’re not for everyone, they are for those of us who are passionate about our Macs and PCs. You see, the holiday season is a shopper’s paradise, as long as you know how to navigate the crowds and find the best software deals, sales & special offers. If you’ve had your eye on a few cool apps and software bundles, now may be the time to pull the trigger and secure the best specials of the year. Speaking of which, we are going to help you to find those deals so bookmark this page and keep checking back between now and the New Year.
The Best Shopping Days of the Year
There will be big deals all through the holiday season, but there are three days that have captured the imagination of the public, by offering the most significant sales and value.
Black Friday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. When is Black Friday? It occurs on the first Friday after Thanksgiving, which happens to be on November 25th this year. Black Friday offers deals so good that people are willing to fight for them. Literally.
Black Friday has become infamous for turning customers into wild animals, willing to do whatever necessary to grab the limited specials. There are incredible deals to be found, but we don’t care how great a price that flat screen TV is, it’s should never be an excuse to treat a fellow human being badly.
If you would prefer not to get a handbag swung at your head, we recommend our favorite deal day of the year – Cyber Monday. When is Cyber Monday? Cyber Monday occurs on the first Monday after Thanksgiving, which this year falls on November 28th.
Like Black Friday, it offers great sales but with a catch. The sales are all online.
That’s right, no fighting, no parking, no lines, just great deals from the comfort of your couch.
Cyber Monday was started a decade ago after it became apparent that there was a consistent online shopping bump after the Easter weekend of window shopping. Soon, online retailers were using the term and offering some of the biggest deals of the year to capitalize on the demand.
Consequently, for those of us who love apps and software, Cyber Monday is one of the most exciting days of the year.
Also known as “Panic Saturday”, this is the final Saturday before Christmas and retailers line up one-day specials targeting the crowd of last-minute shoppers who are cursing to themselves, “Why did I wait so long?!?!” Super Saturday is set to be super-charged in 2016 as it falls on December 24th. It will take a brave man or woman to venture out shopping on this day, but there is no doubt that great deals are there to be found for those who do. Because it falls on Christmas Eve, online Super Saturday sales are more limited than usual, as physical gifts will not arrive in time for Christmas. However, if you’re purchasing an app or treating yourself to a gift, then there’s no need to worry!
