The Thanksgiving weekend keeps getting bigger and bigger for U.S. shoppers and retailers alike. According to comScore, Cyber Monday saw about $355 million in e-commerce sales
in 2008. Since then, the online shopping splurge has skyrocketed with sales from desktop users hitting $2.28 billion last year.
Black Friday and Thanksgiving itself have also experienced impressive growth in e-commerce sales
since 2008, reaching $1.66 and $1.1 billion in 2015 respectively. While this is considerably less than what consumers spend online on Cyber Monday, it still outstrips e-commerce sales on an average day by a healthy margin.
