Online Black Friday Shopping Passes $1 Billion for the First Time

Rather than fighting the crowds in retail stores on Black Friday, November 23, about 57 million Americans shop online for Black Friday deals. ComScore reports that online shoppers spent $1.042 billion on Black Friday 432% increase compared to last year.

For the holiday season of 2012 spanning November 1 through November 23, $13.7 billion has been spent online. That is a 16% increase versus the same period of 2011. Online shoppers spent $633 million on Thanksgiving Day alone.

The company that benefited most from the significantly increased online shopping over the holiday weekend was Amazon, which was the most visited e-commerce website. Rounding out the top five in order were Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and Apple.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
