121 Cyber Monday Email Subject Lines to Boost Open Rates

Email marketing can be one of your biggest Cyber Monday revenue drivers. However, it doesn't matter how good your email designs or discounts are if nobody sees them—and that's where top-notch Cyber Monday email subject lines play a critical role.

Below, we'll walk you through everything you need to know to craft compelling Cyber Monday email subject lines your subscribers can't resist opening. First, we'll start with a few best practices, then move on to some copy/paste templates and examples to use in your campaigns.

Cyber Monday email subject line best practices

Cyber Monday is arguably one of the most competitive days for email marketing, with subscribers receiving an unprecedented number of emails in 24 hours.

You'll need to write top-notch Cyber Monday email subject lines to stand out from the competition. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind to increase your odds of earning an open:
  • Preview text: Pair your preview text with your subject line to take advantage of the extra inbox real estate and characters.
  • Mentions of exclusivity: Emphasize that your email contains exclusive Cyber Monday deals that recipients won't find elsewhere.
  • Sense of urgency: Use words like "last chance," "limited time," and "hours left" to create a sense of urgency.
  • Discounts: State the discount percentage or dollar amount to grab attention and convey value. Use numbers and percentage signs to preserve characters and space.
  • Emojis: Make your emails stand out with emojis. However, if everyone in your industry uses emojis, use plaintext (to make it stand out).
  • Cyber Monday callout: Include "Cyber Monday" in your subject lines so subscribers know what to expect in the email.
  • Personalization: Add the recipients’ names or past purchase behaviors to make subject lines more personalized.
  • Segmentation: Tailor subject lines based on recipients’ preferences or purchase history, ensuring relevance and higher open rates.
  • Short and sweet copy: Keep subject lines concise and to the point, as shorter subject lines tend to perform better (especially on mobile devices).
  • Notices: Give your subscribers a heads-up email before Cyber Monday to let them know the good deals heading their way.
  • Reminders: Take advantage of abandoned cart emails and Cyber Monday deal reminders to ensure your audience doesn't miss out.
