    Interestingly, those same clothes will be marked down by even more once Christmas is over. Electronics and appliances typically offer the best buys on Black Friday and Cyber Monday; they aren't seasonal items that will be marked down as much following the holidays, meaning consumers would be advantaged to act on such deals.
