Cyber Monday Expected to Break Records

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- After Black Friday, there is Cyber Monday where holiday shoppers will buy presents from the comfort of their home or office.

More people are expected to shop online this Cyber Monday than visit stores on Black Friday, according to American Express.

Shoppers are expected to spend $2.2 billion online during Cyber Monday, it's an 15 percent increase over 2012, according to Adobe Systems Inc. In recent years, it has become the biggest online shopping day of the year and Dec. 2 is expected to set a new record.

Adobe's Digital Index sorted through nearly half a trillion visits to more than 2,000 retail sites to arrive at this year's prediction.

Fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas may cause more shoppers to take advantage of online deals. A Gallup poll found that Americans will spend an average of $706 on gifts this year, compared with $786 last year. In addition, about one-third of shoppers say they will rely more on mobile devices to make their purchases this year.
