U.S. Shoppers Spent $7B Online Last Week

After a massive $6.9 billion five-day week, it is obvious that online shopping is booming. It's not hard to see why either. Why deal with long lines, rude people and limited stock on popular items? I do all my shooping online.

The past week was the heaviest five-day online shopping period in U.S. history, according to a new report that shows consumers are spending more online than they did last year. During the week of December 8 through 14, U.S. consumers spent $6.9 billion online, an 11 percent increase over 2011.
