Cyber Monday is a shopping holiday reserved for people who prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of the noisy crowds and traffic that ensues on Black Friday. On the first Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, stores have major deals for online shoppers. Many consumers will shop online from their smartphones in the office, as they are getting back to work from their busy Thanksgiving weekend.
For stores such as Amazon, Cyber Monday is generally the most anticipated and productive shopping day of the year, even surpassing Black Friday. A recent holiday survey reveals that most shoppers will purchase merchandise on cyber Monday, as opposed to Black Friday.
