Today is Cyber Monday – the online counterpart to Black Friday! 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 $2.4 billion, many online retailers will see a huge spike in profits – and shoppers will see their shopping budget go farther!
Each year, new trends emerge as consumers change their online shopping habits. For example, purchases made on a smartphone or tablet continue to rise each year. Fun fact: last year, 41.2% of all Cyber Monday traffic came from mobile. With an overall average order value of $124, how will you be shopping this Cyber Monday?
