Last year, e-commerce sales alone amounted to $12.8 billion for the five-day period between Thanksgiving and the following Monday, known as Cyber Monday these day.

This year’s Thanksgiving weekend is set to shatter sales records once again as more and more Americans seem to see it as the perfect occasion to hunt for bargains ahead of Christmas.
