The first two days of the holiday sales period have netted $4.45 billion in U.S. online purchases, with mobile devices — led by smartphones — accounting for a record $1.5 billion of that amount, with $2.72 billion spent on BlackFriday and $1.73 billion on Thanksgiving. The figures come from Adobe, which has been tracking some 4,500 sites, including 80% of the top 100 retailers.
This is an improvement from last year; at least, Thanksgiving sales were and it’s estimated that Black Friday and Cyber Monday will follow suit. People do love buying their presents online these days. And go for it! …’Course, I’m biased that way.
