After a weekend of strong online sales, retail websites are rolling out the gimmicks on Cyber Monday to draw buyers.
The sales promotions on the Monday after Thanksgiving got their
name from a retail trade group, which promoted the idea that
people, upon returning to work, would log onto their computers
there and shop.
Now it's about the deals online in the way that Black Friday means a shopping frenzy in stores.
In fact, as stores promote Black Friday discounts online, it's getting harder to tell the difference between the two as sellers try to grab dollars any way and at any time they can.
IBM's Coremetrics predicts the discounts, free shipping offers
and other come-ons will make Cyber Monday the busiest online
shopping day of the season.
