Cyber Monday: Surprising Facts About Online Shopping

Cyber Monday: Surprising Facts about Online Shopping

December 2 is a special day for online shopping enthusiasts in the country. These men and women will find their eyes and fingers glued to their gadgets – phones, tablets, or laptops – hoping to score major deals online. That’s right, it’s Cyber Monday!

If you’re a hardcore fan of online shopping, we’re pretty sure you’ve already marked your calendar a few months ago. If it’s just not your cup of tea, you might want to give it a shot for the occasion alone. Trust us. You’ll be in for a surprise when you see hundreds of awesome deals online, saving you huge bucks for the holidays!

While it may be true that Cyber Monday is nothing but a marketing ploy, you’ll actually come across tons of great discounts from well-known retailers on this day. Leading stores such as Amazon, Target, and Walmart offer amazing deals as early as Thanksgiving. If you don’t want to miss out, be sure to sign up for their email newsletters. Plus, it’s a great way to avoid massive crowds in shopping malls.

Before you start browsing and getting your credit cards ready, you might want to learn more about this shopping phenomenon. With that said, here are 10 interesting facts about online shopping:

  • National Retail Federation’s org coined the term “Cyber Monday” after noticing that online sales skyrocketed the Monday following Thanksgiving.
  • Social media plays a key role in the rise of online shopping, with retailers using platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to promote their sales.
