also expected to be the biggest ?online shopping day... in history. retailers are expected to pull in more than three point three ?billion dollars in online sales today... up nine percent from last year. and about 40 percent of all american consumers plan to take part in today's shopping holiday. so where did "cyber monday" come from? the national retail federation coined the phrase back in 2005... after noticing that 77 percent of retailers noticed a spike in sales, the and companies have been offering big deals that ?day.. ever since. but why did it start on a ?monday? because 11 years ago, most americans only had access to ?high-speed internet... at their office! so they started their online shopping as soon as they returned to work, following the thanksgiving weekend. but consumers aren't waiting until monday anymore... which is why ?some "cyber monday" deals... started last week! and this year's "black friday" was actually the biggest yet, for ?online sales.
