Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
Once known as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday has now taken the backseat to its new leader: Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday falls on November 28th this year, and if you have not heard yet, deals this year are set to amaze you, according to SupportSquad.
According to comScore, in 2010, Cyber Monday reached a record breaking $1.028 billion in online spending in just one day. This was a 16% increase from the 2009 numbers in an increasingly declining economy. This one-day total was not only the largest total of online spending in one day, but it was also the first one-day spending to surpass a billion dollars.
Retailers are expecting that overall sales numbers will surpass those of 2010. "Online stores offer huge discounts on holiday-gifts - everything from clothing and jewelry to electronics," says Sr. Product Manager with SupportSquad™. "All these new gadgets usually results in a busy time for SupportSquad, who can provide tech support services to users looking to set-up their new devices with ease."
The most purchased electronics for 2010 were:
- Smaller Laptops (such as netbooks)
- Smartphones - with iPhone leading in sales
- Tablets - with iPad being number one in sales
- HDTVs - Digital Cameras - DSLR was number one last year
- MP3s - Apple once again dominated this category with the iPod
- Video Game Consoles - both Xbox 360 and PS3 led the pack in 2020
Many of the same items are expected to dominate in sales again this year.
