I come from a long line of scissor happy coupon clippers — mostly moms, but dads and uncles got into the action too — and something about Cyber Monday, even more than Black Friday, just brings out the deal hound in me. Because let's face it: Black Friday is chaos. Buckling the kids into car seats so other people can body slam you at the checkout aisle? No, thanks. But all of the Cyber Monday 2017 sales, on the other hand, are sale extravaganzas you can take part in while still wearing your pajamas. What's not to love?
It's no stretch that most parents are looking for ways to save on big-ticket items like electronics and household goods before the holidays come barreling down on us like a very fun, very expensive Midnight Express train. Luckily, the big-box stores know what's up, and they're marking down products big time. The only downside of Cyber Monday is that you have to move fast to get what you want — start early, beause deals run out, and occasionally, websites collapse under the weight of all that traffic. To help you take full advantage of the day, Romper scoped out the savings landscape at the stores families love and need most.
Is Target heaven? Does the afterlife include a bull terrier named Bullseye and a concession selling popcorn and grilled cheese? Only time will tell. In the meantime, apparently Target's Cyber Monday deal includes 50 percent off select toys and deals like $30 off Keurig K200 Single Serve K-Cup Coffee Maker. You know, the stuff parents really need.
You probably know that Walmart is like the King of Black Friday deals, but seriously, few things sound worse than hanging out there to grab a Barbie. That's why their Cyber Monday deal is so great. Their will be huge price slashes on everything from toys and holiday decor to kitchen equipment.
It's the first place expectant parents head for when they're ready to search for baby gear and this year, you don't even have to try and find a parking space. Enjoy all of Babies "R" Us' Cyber Monday deals like huge sales on cribs, car seats, and other expensive baby gear with 15 percent off site wide (some restrictions apply) through Dec. 1 at 5:00 a.m. EST and 60 percent off Carter's clothing, accessories, and shoes from Nov. 28 through Nov. 30.
OK, so Buy Buy Baby is where expectant parents go, too. And this year, you can skip the overwhelming aisles and go straight for their Cyber Monday deal to score strollers, carriers, and other items on your registry. There will be 20 percent off select Graco products, 15 percent off Baby Jogger strollers and travel systems, 30 percent off Kiinde nursing and feeding products.
Toy "R" Us is stepping up for Cyber Monday with free shipping on purchases over $29 dollars and free-store pickup within an hour of placing your order. Some favorites are also enjoying huge price slashes like 40 percent off all Rusty Rivets and 25 percent off all Journey Girls. You can also take 60 percent off all Hasbro games from Nov. 28 through Nov. 30 and enjoy 15 percent off site wide from Nov. 25 through Dec. 1 at 5:00 a.m. EST. (Some restrictions apply.)
Some say Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, but my heart belongs to Barnes & Noble. This Cyber Monday, the popular bookstore is offering 50 percent & up off DVDs and Blu-Ray, 50 percent off those super-fun kits, and 30 percent off one item in Toy & Games or the Hobbies & Collectibles Departments. Barnes & Nobles has literally everything, so it's a good day to get started on your Christmas list.
