Record Sales On Cyber Monday

It looks like Cyber Monday is shaping up to be the "biggest online shopping day in history." It looks like people are finally figuring out that Cyber Monday is the best way to get a deal in the comfort of your own home, minus all the mobby / stabby / shootiness that takes place on Black Friday. big grin

The numbers are mind-boggling. As of 6 p.m. Eastern time, overall sales were up 17.5% on Cyber Monday compared with last year, says IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark. Another e-commerce research company, Custora Pulse, found online sales up almost 19%. The numbers may shift even higher as people continue to shop through the evening.
