Black Friday shopping lasts all night at in Anthem

Black Friday shopping lasts all night at in Anthem

At the start of the holiday season, consumer spending rose 16.8% year-over-year by yesterday evening, according to Adobe Analytics, which tracked 80% of online transactions at the top 100 U.S. retailers.

Scrolling through social media, the early victor of Black Friday 2017 looks clear - but the truth may be more complicated.

A separate survey by Salesforce also found more shoppers migrating to mobile devices to ring up purchases on Turkey Day.

In recent years, retailers have started sales even earlier than Black Friday to avoid the one-day craze that has resulted in mayhem south of the border. If you see one that would look flawless on your living room media console or hanging in your man cave, don't hesitate: A few of the best deals appear to already be sold out.

Two factors seemed to have altered how people view Black Friday, said JoAndrea Hoegg, an associate professor at the University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business. Overall, $33.26 billion have been spent online from November 1 to November 23, a 17.9% increase over the same period previous year. Eastern Time, an 18.4% growth over a year ago.

Americans are expected to shell out $6.6 billion online the Monday after Thanksgiving, while Black Friday is expected to rake in $5 billion in online sales. Experts predict shoppers will spend some $672 billion on the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally the busiest shopping time of the year. A massive amount WowWee Fingerlings are in stock and now the Black Friday live video show has launched on the Amazon Black Friday Deals Page.

Shoppers looking to buy an Amazon Alexa, a Phillips Hue system, a Nest thermostat or other trendy technology, he said, scour the internet for Black Friday deals. In another break from typical Black Friday TV doorbusters, the deals on this 60-inch Sony 4K model and its larger, 70-inch cousin (below) are off-brand prices for name-brand TVs.

"I may not go for the big-box television flat screen at Best Buy", Giesler said.
