Cyber Monday

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States, created by companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a press release entitled “‘Cyber Monday’ Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”.[1]

According to the Research 2005 eHoliday Mood Study, “77 percent of online retailers said that their sales increased substantially on the Monday after Thanksgiving, a trend that is driving serious online discounts and promotions on Cyber Monday this year (2005)”. In 2010, comScore[2] reported that consumers spent $1.028 Billion online on Cyber Monday (excluding travel, 2009: $887M), the highest spending day of 2010.

In 2006, announced that it launched the portal, a one-stop shop for Cyber Monday deals.[3] Cyber Monday has become an international marketing term used by online retailers in Canada, the United KingdomPortugalGermany, and Chile.

Origin of term

The term “Cyber Monday” is a name invented by[4] It was first used within the ecommerce community during the 2005 holiday season. According to Scott Silverman, the head of, the term was coined based on 2004 research showing “one of the biggest online shopping days of the year” was the Monday after Thanksgiving (12th-biggest day historically).[citation needed] Retailers also noted the biggest period was December 5 through 15 of the previous year. [5][6] In late November 2005, the New York Times reported that “The name Cyber Monday grew out of the observation that millions of otherwise productive working Americans, fresh off a Thanksgiving weekend of window shopping, were returning to high-speed Internet connections at work Monday and buying what they liked.”[7]
