Cyber Monday Hits the Internet

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  Who says Mondays are no fun?  Sitting at the computer is the reality for a number of workers Monday, taking time to surf the web and find those holiday deals. 

Experts say there are plenty of  deals to be found; some websites offer anywhere from 50-70% off everything.

But this year's holiday shopper is a tough read.  Despite a weak economy, Black Friday saw a 7% increase in sales.  So you would think that means Cyber Monday is sure to be a hit.  But that's not neccesarily the case.  A number of shoppers we spoke with say today just wasn't for them. 

Even though we couldn't find many online shoppers, analsyts say last year over $730 million were spent on Cyber Monday.  And early numbers today show over 4 million shoppers have hit the web to find a deal.
