Every Amazon device on sale for Cyber Monday

The long shopping weekend isn't over just yet, as Amazon's Cyber Monday 2018 deals have gone live in Canada.

Smartphones are expected to account for a large portion of online sales revenue, projected to be more than $2 billion, according to the firm.

USA retailers have also bombarded shoppers with thousands of promotional emails, but that drew the ire of several people who complained that they woke up to a deluge of cyber Monday emails compared to years past. If not backed with the right IT infrastructure, the heavy traffic will lead to headaches such as outages and other technical glitches.

On Black Friday, some websites including apparel retailer J.Crew and home improvement chain Lowe's Cos Inc, suffered temporary outages. Some of Cyber Monday's deals may be even better than what you found on Thanksgiving and Black Friday (and, honestly, some of them may even be the same). Some of these Cyber Monday sales from Amazon Cyber Week Deals and Walmart Cyber Monday will continue on throughout the week, but a lot of them will be gone before you know it - just like those Black Friday deals.

Cyber Monday is expected to generate $7.8 billion in sales, up almost 18 percent on previous year, which would make it the biggest online shopping day in the U.S., according to Adobe Analytics. It's not a direct discount like Target's deal, but if you shop at Kohl's frequently, it can really pay off.

Black Friday is one of the most advertised shopping holidays of all time.
