The days following Thanksgiving Day have given consumers additional reasons to spend their money in the most inexpensive ways. There’s the long-standing tradition of Black Friday where deals have gone through the roof – some businesses even offer as much as an 85 percent discount! Then there’s 'Small Business Saturday' which encourages shoppers to visit their local stores.

After resting for a day, consumers and shoppers were amazed at high discounts offered online during Cyber Monday. And about five years ago, Giving Tuesday was commercialized to kick off the international day of giving in time for the holiday season.

Some retailers continue to offer great deals and sales even after Monday.

Cyber week sale

Black Friday and Cyber Monday remain as the two biggest days for discount-seekers; however, a lot of retailers have begun a new shopping revolution which is now being known as 'Cyber Week.' One of them is Amazon, who is the world’s largest internet company and the biggest retailer in the United States.

According to CNET, online retailer Amazon continues to offer great new deals every day with its Cyber Monday Deals Week. “If you pay close attention to Amazon's deals lists, you'll note a resemblance between the online retail giant's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals,” CNET posted.

While the price slash is not as big compared to Friday and Monday right after Thanksgiving, Amazon’s Cyber Week still offers a great number of discounts.

For the most part of the week, the deals offered by Amazon are comparable to that offered during the Cyber Monday sale. Other retailers offering Cyber Week deals include Best Buy, JCPenny, Macy’s, REI, Target, and Walmart.

Amazon as the leading holiday retailer

Amazon announced that the recent Cyber Monday was the biggest shopping day worldwide in company history in terms of the record number of sold items.

However, Amazon has yet to reveal the specific amount it actually sold.

According to the retailer’s latest announcement, they have received “hundreds of millions” of orders from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday. Another 140 million items were bought from small businesses, Amazon reported. The company noted that the orders from the Amazon App increased by more than 50 percent worldwide compared to last year.

As posted by Amazon, companies like One Savvy Life, Ancestry, and Tea Forte have experienced growth in terms of sale this year compared to last year’s Cyber Monday. Most notable about Amazon’s service is that aside from big discounts, there are more than one hundred million items that are eligible for free shipping.
