Black Friday vs. Cyber Monday

By  | 

Retailers may be hoping for big sales on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but Cyber Monday may be even bigger.

Adobe Analytics is forecasting this coming Monday as the largest online shopping day in U.S. history.

Americans are expected to spend $6.6 billion online on Cyber Monday compared to $5 billion online for Black Friday.

Not bad for an event that started just over a decade ago.

"Cyber Monday" began in 2005 as a way to promote the relatively new concept of online retail.
