Retailers see biggest-ever Cyber Monday after record online Black Friday

Black Friday Online Shopping

Black Friday Online Shopping

Amazon Cyber Monday deals are getting us giddy with excitement here at T3 in terms of the scope of their price reductions, and among the very best are, as you would expect, discounts on Amazon's own products.

Adobe pointed to the compressed calendar this holiday season, with six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas than a year ago and retailers pushing greater incentives for shoppers to finish lists early.

Yes, starting on Monday at many retail stores, and even on Sunday evenings at some, Cyber Monday, the next major push for consumer dollars for holiday shopping, kicks off.

Inc and other traditional retailers such as Target Corp and Walmart have beefed up delivery services to fulfill online orders faster as more customers shop on their mobile phones and tablets at home. Another great example of this fact can be seen in one of Amazon's best Cyber Monday deals, which cuts the price of the Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra HD with Alexa Voice Remote by £20.

This year, Target made free shipping available to all its customers throughout the shopping season, while Walmart offered shoppers the option of free two-day shipping or in-store pickup on the same day.

A clear victor so far of the early deals and ramped up preparation for the holidays, were retailers with greater online presence or those who had services such as "buy online and pick up at store".

"The weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is truly a lucrative period for online trading", said Vivek Pandya, lead analyst at Adobe.

However, the deluge of online orders are pressuring websites, some of which have experienced outages and other technical glitches.
