  • Game console bundles: While Black Friday is certainly offering its share of great deals on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 bundles, James notes that retailers Gamestop, Target, Costco, and Walmart all offered even deeper discounts on console bundles on Cyber Monday last year.
  • Brand-name TVs: While Black Friday is a great time to get a good deal on cheap no-name televisions, Cyber Monday will likely see an increase in deals for TV sets from Samsung, Panasonic, LG, Sony, and Vizio.
  • Brand-name laptops: Like with brand-name TVs, Black Friday offers terrific deals for cheapie laptops but not so much for the big name brands. That should change on Cyber Monday, however, when the major retailers should offer bigger discounts on high-end laptops from Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, and Apple.
  • Shoes and beauty products: We can’t imagine these will be too interesting for BGR readers, but we still thought they were worth mentioning as products that get better discounts on Cyber Monday just in case some of you guys are looking for Christmas presents for lady friends.
