Cyber Monday looks to be a record day for shopping

Posted:

Black Friday move over, 1 in 6 Americans are expected to shop online beginning at 12 a.m. Monday.
 
A whopping 129 million Americans are expected to log on and take full advantage of the one day deals and savings offered by e-tailers.

The expected increase is due to the large number of people who now have smart phones.

"You can get better deals, it seems like than going out and fighting with the crowds," says Tyler Sharp of Rapid City.
 
"I do do shopping online especially at Christmas, I guess maybe because I'm younger and have kids that going into the stores with the crowds, I just hate that," says Shannyn Anderson.
 
85 percent of e-tailers will offer cyber Monday deals, and like Black Friday shopping, if you want the big ticket items you will need to be logged on and ready to shop at 12 am.

Another tip, make sure you can check out quickly by having your credit card ready to go.

And as always be careful for scammers.  Make sure to only give your personal information out on secured sites.
