Cyber Monday Rakes in Over $800 Million in Sales

Congrats Online Retailers, Cyber Monday Was a Hit!

If you bypassed the malls during the early hours of Black Friday so you could shop from the comfort of your home on Monday, you definitely were not alone. In a report released yesterday, stats tell us that Cyber Monday purchases topped $800 million — that figure is up 15 percent from last year, whereas Black Friday sales jumped seven percent.

Although there were deep discounts to be had on various online sites, don't think that you've missed the boat just yet — most retailers hold out until the last few weeks of December to release their best deals. And honestly, I'm not surprised that people want to stay home during the shopping insanity, especially now that people are dying in the name of a discount.

this whole thing has gotten out of control. americans just can't seem to do anything with civility. shooting someone in a toy store with kids around? trampling someone for $2 dvds? seriously? and don't forget the number of people mugged while in line or cars broken into. no thank you. you can keep that. and i actually passed on cyber monday too. i'm stashing my duckets because that's wiser than spending like we're not in a recession/depression.

I didn't notice any decent deals on Monday. I was disappointed. Maybe I just missed it?

i'm not suprised. Most people got it all out the way now. The problem for retailers now is to keep us coming back to shop for another 21 days. I doubt we will do that.

I'm surprised, honestly. I didn't think it be that much of a gain given the current money woes of most people. But then again, if you're going to shop, shop while you can get a good deal.
