As fall comes to a close and Thanksgiving brings its beautiful bounty, American shoppers are preparing for the annual marathon that is the holiday shopping season. After the crazy crowds and excitement surrounding Black Friday passes, shoppers can continue to discover astonishing discounts, deals, and bargains from their favorite brands on Cyber Monday. On this digital holiday, you’ll also be able to score a memorable stay at Capitol Hill Hotel. 

First Off, What Is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is the digital, and literal follow-up to Black Friday, and it’s been a growing shopping holiday for nearly fifteen years. The concept dates back to 2005, when a team of creatives named Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman invented it for the National Retail Federation. The first Cyber Monday extravaganza was announced in a press release for Shop.org, and it’s since blossomed into an international tradition with major participants including Amazon and Best Buy.
