Beleaguered shoppers are still nursing their bruises and retailers are still fixing up their stores following UK's biggest-ever "Black Friday", yet the deals keep on coming.
Tomorrow is "Cyber Monday", the internet's biggest shopping day of the year when online retailers offer consumers another chance to grab a bargain as the Christmas shopping season gets underway.
While the cyberspace market place will be without rushing crowds and security guards seen, the clamour for deals will be just as strong, as analysts expect the total spend to be even higher.
Cyber Monday arrived in the UK in 2009 and has been the biggest online retail day ever since, with this year’s extravaganza expected to be the busiest yet.
According to Experian Marketing Services-IMRG, £649.6m will be spent on Cyber Monday with a quite incredible peak of around £451,000 a minute. Experian predict retail sites to pick up 145m visitors over the course of the day.
The Centre for Retail Research are slightly more conservative in their estimates, predicting a total spend of £556m during the day, yet even that would represent an 11.4 per cent increase on last year.
Wondering what all this fuss is about? Here are some of the best deals online retailers will be trying to seduce you with:
The UK arm of e-commerce giant Amazon enjoyed its busiest day in history on Friday with as over 5.5m items were ordered as part of the Black Friday madness.
Yet that total could be broken on Cyber Monday, as was the case last year when Amazon received orders on 4.1m items three days after receiving 4m orders on the Friday.
Instead of setting its own cut-price deals, John Lewis has committed to price-matching its competitors this weekend. A number of bargains set exclusively for Black Friday are no longer available.
With Halfords’ Black Friday sales carrying over into Monday, most of the bargains have already been hoovered up. Yet there are still big discounts to be found online such as a 31 per cent reduction from £99.99 to £38.99 on the above TomTom Sat Nav equipment.
Fashion retailer is offering 20 per cent off all orders up to £500 that use the promo code CYBERWKND20.
Morrisons also has a Cyber Monday discount code available; VOU3934116 will get you £5 off any order of £80 or more.
Currys’ “Black Tag” event, which began on Friday, continues on Cyber Monday with thousands of deals on a wide variety of products. Just say, for example, you’re in the market for a 3D projector – you could save £600 on the above Screeneo PHD model.
Cyber Monday forms part of Marks and Spencer’s “4 Magical Days” in which over 6,151 are offered for up to 30 per cent off. The British retailer will be hoping to avoid the catastrophic website malfunctions that sent its share price spiralling earlier in the year.
Game has set up a mini-site specifically for Cyber Monday bargain hunters – cybermonday.game.co.uk – but as of yet the details of what will be available is being kept under wraps. A number of Black Friday deals are still widely available over the weekend.
Tesco’s website buckled under excessive traffic on Friday, but that isn’t stopping it from inviting shoppers back for more on Monday.
The supermarket's current Black Friday website will morph into a Cyber Monday site at midnight with a host of new deals set to become available.
If you’re in search a new phone this Christmas, but didn’t fancy armouring up for the Black Friday brawls, then Samsung’s sale could be your best bet. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 smartphone, only released earlier this year, is available for 15 per cent off.
