The Monday following the Thanksgiving weekend has been dubbed Cyber Monday. This is the day when consumers return to work from a long weekend of holiday shopping and turn their attention to more shopping via the Internet.
Online retailers expect some 72 million online shoppers to visit their websites today. Those shoppers are predicted to collectively spend an estimated $700 million on this one day, according to ComScore Networks. To lure shoppers, online retailers plan to roll out various promotions and sales. Wal-Mart plans a special 5-day sales campaign on its website.
Cyber Monday follows on the heels of ‘Online’ Black Friday. While the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) is usually a popular traditional shopping day for consumers, this year saw online sales of $531 million, according to ComScore.
With all the online shopping going on, we can’t think of a better time to shop for a new life insurance policy. While not exactly the most exciting of stocking stuffers, it is one more item to cross off your list before year end. And the added peace of mind during the holidays is a nice benefit also!
