Cyber Monday Origin

Cyber Monday was first used in 2005 by the National Retail Federation to encourage people to shop online. It referred then (and still does) to the Monday following Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving and one of the busiest shopping days of the year). Last year, Americans spent more than $3 billion online for Cyber Monday, making it the biggest e-commerce sales day in the country. But how did such a “holiday” come to be?

Thank Ellen Davis, senior vice president of research and strategic initiatives for the National Retail Federation, who coined the term in 2005. For several years in a row, the NRF had noticed a recurring spike in online revenue and traffic on the Monday following Thanksgiving. They believed it was because people were making purchases from their computers at work, where the Internet connections were faster and their kids couldn’t get a sneak peek at their gifts.

Now Cyber Monday means it's the perfect day to order almost anything online since every industry has a strong web presence. Like us, get 20% off of flowers when you spend $50 or more. Just use "Cyber20" at checkout. Happy shopping!
