Black Friday not enough for you? Well there’s still Cyber Monday to look forward to.

Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is essentially a marketing tool designed to supercharge one of the most rabid shopping days of the year. It tends to be the busiest online shopping day there is.

Many of the deals that we're encountering run right through from Black Friday through the weekend on on into Cyber Monday, so it can be hard to differentiate between the two.

At the risk of repeating ourselves, then, here are the deals that we think will be most relevant come Cyber Monday.

Check out our best Black Friday deals feature


Maplin

The high street and online retailer has a few deals worth checking out all of which will end at midnight tonight. The pick of the bunch include a top of the range Palit Nvidia GeForce 4GB graphics card, which is doen to £389.99. To put that price drop into perspective, you can currently get the same model on Overclockers for £450. If you are on the hunt for an external hard drive, the WD 3TB My Cloud NAS External hard drive is now £114.99, which is doen from £149.99.

You can find more Maplin deals at the link below.

Overclockers

Many of the deals introduced on Black Friday are still running into Cyber Monday and includes grabbing the brilliant Nvidia Shield tablet with a free controller for £299, the Steelseries 4H gaming headset for just £10 and a Samsung Syncmaster S24D390HL 24-inch Widescreen Slim bezel LED monitor for £99.95.

There's more deals on a host of graphics cards and G Sync monitors, which you can see on the OverClockers forum.


Motorola

On Cyber Monday, you'll be able to get £100 off the second generation Moto X when you purchase it through the Motorola website. This is the best way to buy the phone anyway, because it grants you access to the extensive Moto Maker customisation tool.

This deal means that you can pick up one of the more stylish Android flagship phones on the market for as little as £320. Bargain!

You'll need to sign up for the deal on Monday December 1 from 8am, with registration ending at 12pm pn Tuesday December 2 - though with stocks limited, you'll probably want to get in early.

Steam

Valve's ace online PC and Mac game store is currently running an 'Exploration Sale,' which means a bunch of top games made available for knock-down prices for a few short hours from Friday 28 November to Tuesday 2 December. So far we've seen 75 percent off Bioshock Infinite, 33 percent off Shadow of Mordor, and 50 percent off Sniper Elite III, among others. Who knows what there'll be come Cyber Monday?

Google

We're not sure if this offer will last the weekend, but Google is currently offering its Chromecast media dongle for £20 - that's down from £30 - on the Google Play Store. We say it might not last because the company was also offering the LG G Watch for half price (just £79), seemingly right up to Cyber Monday, but it already appears to have run out of stock.

EE

EE's Cyber Monday deals closely resemble its Black Friday deals, unsurprisingly. These include 20 percent off all PAYG smartphones worth less than £150. This means that you can pick up the Huawei Ascend Y550 for just £55.99, making it one of the cheapest 4G smartphones around.

You can also get 20 percent off PAYG 4GEE mobile Wi-Fi devices, such as the EE Osprey, and all accessories to boot.

Finally, any tablets bought on a 4G pay monthly plan will come with the benefits associated with EE Extra plans, at the rate of 4GEE standard plans. That means you'll save £5 on your monthly bill and get 10GB for the price of 2GB, among other perks.

The main difference is that on Monday, these deals will revert to being online only. Because it's Cyber, innit?
