On Cyber Monday, it wasn’t a Facebook status about a great deal on shopping sweeping the social networking site. It was a status update proclaiming copyright over content.
If many of your co-workers seemed a little less productive today you might chalk it up to online shopping. Monday is affectionately known as Cyber Monday – when retailers put deals online that are simply too good to pass up.
This Cyber Monday, shoppers are expected to spend a spend $1.5 billion, which is hundreds of millions more than last year, according to Internet analytics firm comScore. Just like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is starting earlier than ever, with many retailers offering Cyber Weekend deals.
The shopping’s not done yet. Wedged between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Small Business Saturday, which has shoppers heading out to their local stores.
Cyber Monday is oftentimes a more popular shopping event than Black Friday. The convenience of shopping at home without the hassles of the lines and throngs of people can be a huge draw. However, it’s important to know which sites are the best for deals, quality and ease in online shopping.
It turns out Cyber Monday is a good time to shop for vacations. Combine a slow week at the hotels, with some Thanksgiving dinner conversations and you have a hot week for travel deals.
Fifteen locally-based websites were among the 150 shut down in a pre-holiday crackdown targeting sites selling counterfeit and pirated merchandise.
The week after Thanksgiving is lovingly known as “dead week” amongst travel experts. This is because many people — getting off a long weekend of travel — decide to mostly stay at home, which is good news to anyone looking to save money on a vacation.
The stores are busy this weekend — but one in three people still plan to do part of their holiday shopping online this year. But you then run the risk of getting scammed.
Bargain shoppers aren’t waiting until Cyber Monday to do their holiday shopping. At the stroke of midnight Friday shoppers began their buying marathon. But not everyone rushed into stores — instead, they jumped online.
Saturday was the second annual Small Business Saturday. It’s a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
If you are heading to the mall early Friday morning or late Thursday night, you don’t want to go in unprepared.
As the nation’s retailers continue to celebrate a very positive Black Friday, it appears more is in store for a big Cyber Monday.
An estimated 106 million people will shop on-line Monday in what has become known as Cyber Monday.
Online shopping will likely be at its peak today. Cyber Monday officially started at midnight, and a lot of stores are putting deep discounts on their websites.
