With Americans shopping for bargains at record levels in a down economy, online shopping skyrocketed on Cyber Monday this year. According to estimates from IBM, Cyber Monday online sales were up 30%. While consumers spent less per order this year – they averaged $185.12 – the number of transactions were up by one more item than last year. A full 18% of shoppers shopped from their phones or mobile devices.
