Some people are really into the whole Black Friday thing. They love getting up early the day after Thanksgiving and lining up outside some big box store for their chance to score some heavily discounted deals. If you are one of these people, more power to you! However, if you are, instead, the kind of person who’d rather spend the day after Thanksgiving lounging around in your pajamas instead of fighting bargain-hungry hordes, there are still plenty of amazing deals to be had on Cyber Monday 2019.
Futurism's Favorites: Cyber Monday 2019
“Cyber Monday,” of course, refers to the Monday after Thanksgiving, when consumers are supposed to get the best deals from online retailers. The term was coined in 2005 by Ellen Davis, president of the National Retail Federation, in an effort to kickstart online holiday shopping. And it worked. In 2017, Cyber Monday sales grew to a new all-time high of $6.6 billion, which was more than double what it was in 2015.
This upward trend in Cyber Monday sales is expected to continue this year. In fact, some experts say Cyber Monday 2019 will be the biggest online shopping day in U.S. history, with sales that could approach, or even surpass, $10 billion.
What does that mean for you? It means that for Cyber Monday 2019, you can get better deals on a wider variety of unique products and services than ever before. And to make things easy for you, here’s a list of some of the coolest deals we’ve found so far.
Have you ever wondered why they don’t make dress clothes out of the same high-tech, stretchable, and breathable materials they use for athletic clothes? Well, guess what? Now they do. Behold the revolutionary Kinetic Pant from Ministry of Supply. These pants are made from Japanese Primaflex®, a warp-knit polyester fabric that has the feel and structure of a woven, but bends and stretches like a knit. Their four-way-stretch gives you a flattering modern fit without sacrificing mobility. Available in four different colors and two different fits, the Kinetic Pant is moisture-wicking, water repellent, machine washable, and wrinkle-resistant—or in other words, just about perfect.

These days, just about everybody takes CBD for something. And most people take it in the form of pills or tinctures. However, when it comes to relieving pain and inflammation in skin, muscles, and joints, recent research suggests CBD is way more effective when administered transdermally. That’s why Utah-based Boojum Life created an entire line of topical CBD body oils. Though each individual formula promotes a different wellness goal, they all contain a scientifically advanced full-spectrum hemp oil made of dozens of terpenes, terpenoids, and cannabinoids that interact and synergize, maximizing their effects.

Ask any cybersecurity expert and they’ll tell you that one of the best ways to protect your online security is by using strong, unique passwords for all of your online accounts (and to update them every couple of months). Unfortunately, actually doing this is really hard when you have 70-plus online accounts. That’s why you need Dashlane, a password management app that helps you create and remember strong passwords. The free version lets you create and store up to 50 passwords on a single device. However, the premium version lets you store unlimited passwords and sync them across all your devices. It also automatically updates your passwords and gives you a VPN for WiFi protection. So the question isn’t who needs this service, but rather who doesn’t?

There is nothing we can do to stop aging. However, thanks to a revolutionary new supplement called Basis, we can age better. The not-so-secret ingredients in Basis are crystalline nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, which the human body converts into a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+. This molecule plays a vital role in cellular metabolism and the cellular aging process. For whatever reason, NAD+ levels in humans and all other organisms decline with age. However, Basis boosts NAD+ levels by 40 percent to maximize cellular health, boost energy, and support healthy sleep, all of which should help mitigate the aging process.

Last but not least is the perfect gift for anybody who, uh... wears shoes. Which, if our math is correct, is pretty much everybody.

As such, it’s pretty much a perfect all-purpose shoe that can take you from the workplace to the bar, to the gym, to the great outdoors.
