Cyber Monday 2023 has brought some of the biggest tech deals of the year, with major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and more offering huge savings on TVs, laptops, phones, and other gadgets. Shoppers are taking advantage of the deals online and in stores across the country.

Deep Discounts on Popular 4K and 8K TVs

Some of the most popular Cyber Monday deals are on big-screen 4K and even 8K TVs from top brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio. We’re seeing discounts of $500 to $1,000 off many models.

For example, Walmart has the 65-inch Samsung Q80B QLED 4K TV for just $897, a whopping $1,002 off. This high-end 2022 model has quantum dot technology for over a billion colors, 120Hz refresh rate for smooth motion, and Samsung’s Tizen smart platform.

LG’s acclaimed C2 series OLED TVs are also hugely discounted, like the 55-inch model for $1,296 at Amazon instead of around $1,800. The C2 is one of the best TVs for gaming, movies, and more with perfect black levels, vibrant HDR color, and features tailored for the latest game consoles.

Those wanting the cutting edge in resolution can save big on 8K models like the stunning 75-inch Samsung QN900B Neo QLED 8K Smart TV, discounted a massive $3,000 down to $3,997.

In addition to markdowns on the TVs themselves, many retailers are bundling gift cards and streaming sticks to make the deals even sweeter. For example, Best Buy is including $100 to $200 gift cards on purchases of select TVs.

For example, the acclaimed 42-inch LG C2 OLED TV is on sale for $969 at Walmart instead of $1,400. With specs like 4K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, ultra-fast response time and deep blacks, this large OLED monitor is ideal for both gaming and movies.

The curved, ultrawide 49-inch Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 monitor, which usually costs a staggering $2,300, is discounted a full $1,000 to $1,299 at Amazon and Samsung for Cyber Monday. This mini-LED display with Quantum HDR 2000 color matches high-end OLEDs and has an extremely fluid 240HZ maximum refresh rate that even top PC graphics cards can make full use of for buttery smooth gaming.

Outlook for Cyber Monday Week and Holiday Shopping Season

Experts project over $11 billion will be spent online for Cyber Monday 2023 based on early data, which would make it once again the biggest online shopping day ever.

We can expect to see similarly hot tech deals continue through the rest of Cyber Monday week as retailers try to juice sales before the end of November. So there’s still time to score a discount even if you missed a particular deal earlier.

Overall holiday spending this year is forecasted to rise about 7% over 2022. Shoppers have shown a willingness to hunt for deals but also splurge on fancier gifts like MacBooks and iPads. However, uncertainty looms thanks to high inflation and recession worries. Retailers may need to discount even deeper than usual to clear inventory by year’s end.

About Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday is the Monday after U.S. Thanksgiving, representing the "online" start to the holiday shopping season. While Black Friday deals once focused on in-store doorbusters, the rise of ecommerce has made Cyber Monday almost as critical to retailers.

Cyber Monday dates back to the early 2000s. The name was coined by executives at Shop.org to encourage people to shop online when most only had internet access at work.

These days shoppers can conveniently browse deals and make purchases anytime over the 4-5 day Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. Retailers like Amazon and Walmart spread out deals over many days online. Still, data shows the Monday timeframe attracts peak traffic and conversion rates.
