Cyber Monday Shoppers At The Ready

Discount-seeking cyber shoppers will hit the web early on Nov. 28, looking to take advantage of free shipping, said shopping site PriceGrabber. The PriceGrabber survey of 2,322 people found 39 percent intended to do their shopping on Cyber Monday over any of the other four days of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This is up 2 percent from last year. Ninety-two percent said this decision was based on the fact that this is the day most one-day sales and free-shipping offers took place. Other reasons cited for hitting the web on Monday instead of fighting the crowds Black Friday morning were to spend time with friends and family on Black Friday to discover what they wanted, 20 percent; family tradition to shop online that day, 6 percent; 5 percent consider it a chance to take a break from work, and 5 percent said their office Internet connection was faster than the one at home.
