Retailers are hoping that those of you who skipped the Thanksgiving weekend crowds at the mall (or maybe didn’t find what you wanted there) will get online and get out your credit cards for so-called Cyber Monday.
While many deals last longer than just one day, on Monday the website will offer hourly specials. If you want sneak peeks at those, you can sign up for email alerts. They’re also to be announced Sunday. Or, you could simply sit at your desk all day Monday and troll the site. (Note to our bosses: Don’t worry—it’s just a suggestion.)
According to Shop.org’s “eHoliday Survey,” nearly eight in 10 (78.4 percent) retailers will have special promotions on Cyber Monday.
The survey also found that 58.4 percent of workers with Internet access, or 75.9 million people, will shop for holiday gifts from the office this year.
