Experts were predicting that last Monday, December 14 would be "Green Monday" or the biggest online shopping day of the year. But things got a tad disappointing when sales actually dipped 1%. Turns out most people must have had a case of the Mondays.
Or a case of the "I'm waiting for my next paycheck."
Tuesday, December 15, 2009 was the first day in history that online sales reached $900 million in a single day.
The total came in at $913 million, according to comScore, and was up a whopping 21% over last year.
The surge in online sales last week was enough to bring the total increase of online sales for the 2009 holiday season to 4%. It's been hanging at 3% for a few weeks now.
