This year, November 27th is Cyber Monday! If you’d like to skip the stores for your holiday shopping, there’s no better day to score some deals than Cyber Monday. Always on the Monday after Thanksgiving, this popular online shopping day was first recognized in 2005.
You’ll find online-exclusive deals on Cyber Monday, from fashion to electronics. With sales reaching over $2 billion, many online retailers will see a huge spike in profits – and shoppers will see their shopping budget go farther! Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and Target are all running huge sales to celebrate this day!
Each year, new trends emerge as consumers change their online shopping habits. For example, purchases made on a smartphone or tablet exceeded 17% of total online sales this past year. Fun fact: tablet users spent an average of $131.10 per order, while smartphone users spent $114.73. Also, more than half of all online shopping on Cyber Monday happens in the workplace!
