Matthew Cheng, founder of voucher code website eCoupons.co.uk and CyberMonday.co.uk said, "Cyber Monday interest has been growing for the past few years and for the first time, Amazon.co.uk is having a Cyber Monday sale to correspond with the peak day of online shopping. This year, more UK retailers are having Cyber Monday sales or one day Monday sales to entice online shoppers amidst steep competition."
In the U.S., many online retailers including Sears, Kmart and Home Depot are having "Cyber Monday 2" deals in hopes of repeating last week's record breaking sales.
Cheng predicted, "More than 80% of online retailers in the U.S. now have Cyber Monday sales and I expect a similar figure in the UK in the next few years."
For the past few years, the overall peak of online shopping is 26 December dubbed Cyber Boxing Day.
