Thanksgiving weekend sees record-breaking online consumer electronics sales
 

The weekend is not over yet, but online sales of consumer electronics are breaking records.

It has already been predicted that consumer electronics will be among the top main sellers this Thanksgiving weekend. Now that the weekend is almost over, and with Cyber Monday kicking in, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has released the interim results of its yearly Black Friday Survey. The survey, completed between November 29 to 30, aims to study the shopping habits of consumers, as well as their expectations and intentions.

The survey reveals that consumer electronics is the second top-selling category this Thanksgiving weekend. Clothes are still the most popular, while toys made it to the number three spot. The online sales of consumer electronics also increased ten percent this year, with 55 percent of U.S. adults buying online.

Furthermore, tablets were the most popular (29 percent), headphones came in second (24 percent), while video game hardware landed in third (21 percent). Smartphones only had 19 percent and laptop computers had a meager 17 percent. Around 39 million people in the U.S. have shopped this Thanksgiving weekend - an increase of more than 10 million.
