The competition is on... Black Friday versus Cyber Monday.

Where will you find the best deals? It depends on what you're looking for.


The Cyber Monday ads don't come out until after Black Friday to protect sales, but we've been tracking the deals for years.


So here are our predictions…


Shop Thanksgiving and Black Friday for your TV deals, especially the bigger 4KTVs.

Also, you should see the bigger savings on game consoles Thursday and Friday.


For Cyber Monday, past years show better deals on laptops and clothing.

Last year Target offered 15 percent off site-wide, so expect something similar.


In fact, our research shows some retailers will repeat some of their better Black Friday deals on Cyber Monday.


Bottom line: if you see a screaming deal of something you need, don't wait because you don't want to risk the item selling out.


Regardless of when you choose the shop, you really don't have to leave your home. Most Black Friday deals can be found online as well as in-store.
