'Cyber Monday' deals attract online shoppers
NEW YORK (AP) -- It's the day of the online deal.
Millions of shoppers are expected to click on items today as retailers rev up deals to grab online holiday shopping dollars on the first working day after the busy holiday weekend.
But this year so-called Cyber Monday seems to have stretched into Cyber Week or even Cyber Month, with retailers from Amazon to Wal-Mart rolling out online deals since the beginning of November.
Still, today is expected to be the busiest online shopping day of the year. Research firm comScore expects sales of $2 billion, up from about $1.47 billion last year. Online sales account for about 10 percent of total holiday spending.
