Following Black Friday weekend, Cyber Monday is the last chance to get some juicy online deals before Christmas. But how much money are you actually saving?
With huge online stores such as online clothing store Missguided and Amazon, it’s no wonder Black Friday weekend has gathered over £1 BILLION just from online sales. The National Retail Federation data shows more than 108 million people shopped online over the weekend, about 5 million more than last year. Meanwhile, 99 million people said they shopped in stores, down 3 million from last year.
However, students are disappointed with the amount of discount actually received over this weekend. Some stores, including the fastest growing online retailer ASOS.com, are offering 20-30% discount - making savings only a little more than the standard 10% student discount.
Another 900 million pound is expected to be spent on Cyber Monday, even though the discounts don’t seem to be breathtaking.
