online xmas shoppingIt would seem from the prices we’re seeing that retailers aren’t quite as excited as they used to be about Cyber Monday.

While we headed out to Walmart for Black Friday, we also did some online shopping during the sales, picking up a lot of DVDs and Blu-rays. Now, normally the sales get repeated on Monday, or even more deals show up as online retailers have come to love “Cyber Monday”, the online equivalent of Black Friday.  However, it seems retailers are caring a lot less about the day as I wrote in an article on another blog entitled Cyber Monday slowly fading away as less employees shop at work.

As the details of the sales for tomorrow have started to come out, the deals are not better than Black Friday this year, they’re actually worse.

Now, mind you I am only judging this by DVDs I looked at on Amazon, but here are some examples of what I’m seeing.

Black Friday Price
Cyber Monday Price
Boondock Saints [Blu-ray]
$10.00
$12.49
Gilmore Girls - The Complete Seventh Season
$14.99
$17.49
Sex and the City: The Complete Series
$89.99
$118.99

We’re not quite sure why the prices have crept up for Cyber Monday, but perhaps you would be better off waiting until closer to the holidays when retailers begin to mark things down again, but these new prices are a rather large disappointment after the fantastic prices we just saw on Friday.
