LISBON, Portugal, November 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- eCoupons.com, creator of the new CyberMonday.pt website, announced today that the second annual Cyber Monday in Portugal will run from November 29 to December 6. Cyber Monday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year in the U.S. and UK, is the Monday after Black Friday where retailers offer big discounts online. For shoppers looking to take advantage of Cyber Monday sales, CyberMonday.pt is featuring Cyber Monday sales from the Apple Store, Adobe and more.
This year, Cyber Monday will compete against last week's "Cyber Black Friday" sales. Black Friday is the retail frenzy in the U.S. where stores offer money losing sales to lure holiday shoppers. For example, U.S. department store Target advertised a $3 appliance for its Black Friday sale. To compete, online retailers launched Black Friday online sales creating "Cyber Black Friday". For the first time, Amazon held "Black Friday" sales in the U.S., UK and Canada. This year, Amazon.de is having its first Cyber Monday sale in Germany.
For the past year, Matthew Cheng, founder of eCoupons.com and creator of the new CyberMonday.pt website has been working to bring the Cyber Monday concept around the world by launching CyberMonday.co.uk, CyberMonday.de and other Cyber Monday websites. According to Cheng, "This year, Portuguese shoppers can browse CyberMonday.pt for Cyber Monday sales in Portugal, UK and the U.S. The growth of e-commerce around the world is one of the few bright spots in the global economy."
Talya Schaeffer, creator of CyberBlackFriday.com said, "Last week, the Apple Store Portugal had a Black Friday sale both online and in store. In the future, I predict that more retailers around the world will have Cyber Black Friday sales."
eCoupons.com is listing over a thousand online stores with Cyber Monday sales, coupons and deals. For shoppers in Portugal looking to take advantage of Cyber Monday sales, eCoupons.com created CyberMonday.pt with a directory of Portuguese e-commerce stores and U.S. retailers that ship to Portugal.
