Cyber Monday "Hangover" Deal #1:

Nov 29, 2007

Did you shop on-line Monday? The retailers that bought in to the "Cyber Monday" moniker and promoted it received the highest increases in percentage of sales. This Business Week article that explains the origins of the term, and also states that there were higher sales increases on Thanksgiving night for on-line shopping, and on Saturday, at work sales jumped 25%. Read more about the results after the jump.

The best part for you, though, is the sales that continue past Cyber Monday, and we're going to bring you 3 of the top deals today throughout the day. The first one is a Thursday-only, on-line-only deal at Walmart, as posted above: a 47" 1080p LCD TV for $898.

Tomorrow's sneak peak at Walmart's Daily Deal brings a riddle about getting direction in the car or while walking, so it's a GPS system of some kind.

Saturday's 25% increase was greater than the 9% week-over-week increase on-line retailers gained on Cyber Monday, but not as good as the 55% increase on-line retailers experienced the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Keep in mind, however, that these percentages are relative to the days of the week they were experienced.
