It's basically a way to extend sales from the Black Friday madness, to get people to keep their credit cards handy. Alternatively, you can follow @TheTrackerApp Twitter account to receive the in-stock notification on all hard to find products of the season including WowWee Fingerlings, SNES Classic, Luvabella and more. In fact, cheap prices on TVs are super easy to come by right now.

The world's top-selling smartphone between July and September, as the iPhone 8 largely failed to impress, and the iPhone X took a while to see daylight, this iOS classic starts at just $16.62 a month with installment plans.

The National Retail Federation (NRF), which had predicted strong holiday sales helped by rising consumer confidence, said on Friday that fair weather across much of the nation had also helped draw shoppers into stores.

Sales growth from Thanksgiving through Sunday, she added, topped Forrester's average holiday growth estimate of 12 percent. Just as Christmas begins in September when the first mince pies appear on the shelves in supermarkets, so now Black Friday lasts for weeks.

But as online spending hits record highs, fewer Americans are heading to the store. Visits to physical stores, meanwhile, fell as many retailers offered the same deals online as they did in-store. Besides Walmart and Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Sam's Club, Microsoft, GameStop and Kohl's are the most popular Cyber Monday 2017 sales. The company rose 1.95% during the shortened trading day. This Cyber Monday, the retailer is bringing us some of the best deals around, especially in the shoe department. Prosper Insights & Analytics conducted the survey with NRF. It remains to be seen if and how the delivery system will improve this year, considering the current extraordinary jump in sales.

The group says it tracks 80% of online spending at America's 100 largest retail websites.

Among those who made purchases this holiday weekend, about 58 million people shopped online only, while 51 million shopped exclusively in stores.
