Cyber Monday… Done?

When Thanksgiving comes around, everybody is usually pretty happy. School’s out, you get to eat all you want and not get in trouble, the game’s usually going, and of course family is over for the weekend. Well, maybe you’re not happy about that.

After Thanksgiving, though, are two major days. First is Black Friday, which this year didn’t do amazingly well, but good enough to appease both consumers and sellers. Then, after two days, is Cyber Monday. Only question is, is online shopping going to be a big hit again?

“Cyber Monday” was a term coined by Shop.org in 2004, but it only became popular around 2005. Online shopping companies had reported up to 77% increases in sales on that day alone. In 2006, it was still a hit, but numbers had slowly dwindled down. So the question is: What about this year?

The number of people that are online nowadays has greatly increased as well as those that roam on sites like Shop.org and eBay.com. Online shopping and selling these days has become almost like second-hand when buying items. Many people just hit up Amazon when they want to buy a great book they couldn’t find at Barns N’ Nobles.

Of course, prices will most likely be dropped on Monday, and people will be giving and expecting great deals, but this looks like a dieing tradition.
