Poll: Did You 'Cyber-Shop'?

Online shopping was up 33 percent over last Cyber Monday, according to IBM.

 

A study released today by IBM reported that online sales were up 33 percent over Cyber Monday 2010, with the average order totaling nearly $200.

In the past few years, retailers have viewed the Monday after Thanksgiving as a follow-up to the annual Black Friday craze — and shoppers have followed, with Cyber Monday 2010 accounting for some $1.02 billion in sales, according to comScore.com.

And, in a few cases, retailers like Wal-Mart and Target have extended their online deals through what they're calling "Cyber Week" to take advantage of savvy shoppers.

How about you? Did you do any shopping online yesterday?

Well at least it's physically safer to shop via the net during these sales but the deals are better at the store ! I really believe Black Friday sales should cease. Losing one life warrants that , but as we have seen that number is significantly up ! I am a senior with a walker hm oh well never could I dream of venturing out into those long lines camped out at the stores for hours in the cold ! So never would I ever reap any benefits from the sale. I did see a tv but then I would have to of had a voucher they hand out to the 1st ones in line, up to the max of that item. I called Walmart they were shipped only 10 tv's 40" at $248-. I call that a loss leader ,baiting the customer but never enough stock to meet the demand. The other stores were running about the same. Consumer protection has laws/rules against such practices .
