Cyber Monday

The holiday shopping season begins in earnest on Black Friday and kicks into high gear on Cyber Monday.

The Monday after Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday because it has become the day in which retailers offer their merchandise on the internet at highly discounted prices. It is considered a big spending day for shoppers leading up to Christmas.

Unlike Black Friday, in which people brave the crowds at malls and shopping centers, Cyber Monday presents an opportunity for people all over the world to use their computers to shop from the comfort of their homes and offices.

Cyber Monday has become a major part of the holiday shopping season, offering online discounts on just about any product that can be found in retail stores. Many online shopping networks offer bigger discounts than those found in stores and many also offer free shipping for that one day.

The reason Cyber Monday is so special for both shoppers and retailers is that many people have gone back to work after their Thanksgiving holiday who may or may not have a computer or internet access at home. While at work, they can do much of their shopping using computers at their desks or work stations.

Although some companies frown upon the idea of their employees shopping online while at work, as long as the work gets done, many employers turn a blind eye on Cyber Monday. They know that since there are so many good deals to be had, employees will find time to do some online shopping.

It is estimated that well over a billion dollars is spent by online shoppers on Cyber Monday and each year, as more people gain access to computers and the internet, the number of online shoppers increase and the dollars spent continues to rise.

The competition is vigorous on Cyber Monday. In fact, many large retail chains, big box stores, and small neighborhood businesses compete online just as they do in malls and on Main Street.

On Cyber Monday, you will find many online sales on just about everything from toys, clothing, sheets and blankets, towels, and big ticket items such as cars, jewelry, flat screen televisions, computers and computer software, exercise equipment, tools, refrigerators, and many other items that make great Christmas gifts.

There are literally thousands of website's to shop from. Today, Wal Mart, K Mart, Target, Staples, Macy's, Sears, Kohl's, J.C. Penney, Best Buy, Home Depot, Target, Frys and all other major retailers have online sites to shop from.

And there are many companies that cater to online shoppers on a daily basis. Many have become established worldwide and have well known names such as eBay, Bing, Shop.com, Amazon, Price Grabber, Overstock.com, OVC. com , Walletpop, Shopzilla, Shopping.com, and many, many others.

Shoppers can pay for their purchases with credit or debit cards and then have their merchandise shipped directly to their homes, offices, or anywhere else by the U.S. Postal Service, Federal Express (FedEx), United Parcel Service (UPS), or other carriers.

Cyber shopping is a billion dollar industry and is growing in popularity around the world. All you need is a computer, a credit or debit card, and an online connection to shop at your favorite stores without the hassle of walking the malls.

Online shopping is becoming a favorite way of doing business for both retailers and shoppers and Cyber Monday has become as important to the economy as Black Friday.
