Another Cyber Monday, Another Online Sales Record

According to the people that keep track of this stuff, Cyber Monday set another online sales record. Black Friday did its best to keep up but, in the end, it was Cyber Monday all the way.

Black Friday 2016's reign as the biggest US online sales day ever didn't last long. Three days to be exact. That's because Cyber Monday hit $3.45 billion in online sales, up 12 percent from a year earlier, according to the latest statistics from Adobe Digital Insights. The day edged out Black Friday by roughly $110 million. Jill Stein is already calling for a recount. (OK, not really.)
