Cyber monday comes of Age

I didn't knew about it till my American friend told me. so now US has a cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving and now is celebrated as the online shopping day. Most of the large retail companies are putting the deals online.

Last year, for the first time, the Monday after
Thanksgiving
was the biggest online shopping day of the year by sales, and the first day ever that online spending passed $1 billion, according to comScore, a research..

I think the concept is neat. People who cann't bear the rush of stores on Friday can shop on Monday. The stores who have leftover inventories from Black Friday can liquidate the stocks online the next Monday. I love the American entrepreneurship and adaptability of society.

So as the US online stores are now open, do share some hot online deals here..
