The Holiday shopping season is almost over and with shipping cut off dates around the corner it is safe to look back and do some analysis.
ComScore has published statistics about online spending for the Holiday shopping season 2009. Many people think Cyber Monday is the biggest day for online shops, but it never is. This year Tuesday, December 15th has with $913 million in sales set the record for 2009.
Cyber Monday (Monday, Nov. 30th) got very close this year and stands in second place with $887 million, the highest it has ever ranked on the comScore list.

"In a typical year, Cyber Monday tends to be the eighth to tenth heaviest spending day, but this year it moved higher up the list than ever before," added. Mr. Fulgoni. "In part, this is due to the fact that the day fell fairly late in the season, so that pent up consumer demand likely boosted its performance, but also because of the increasing marketing hoopla and promotional activity that surround the day."

The third heaviest spending day of the year was Tuesday, Dec. 1st with $886 million in spending, followed by Wednesday, Dec. 16th with 874 million and Green Monday (Monday, Dec. 14th) rounding out the top five with $854 million.

For the holiday season-to-date, $24.8 billion has been spent online, marking a 4-percent increase versus the corresponding days last year.

This year the Holiday shopping season started very strong in early November as huge deals promotions around Black Friday launched early and it was smart to buy even before the actual Black Friday.
Prices went up after the Cyber Monday sales week quite a bit and just dropped in the last few days to lure in last minute buyers.
