Cyber Monday a myth? BlueLithium says no. In the wake of debates from several research firms, BlueLithium says it recorded 30 percent higher conversion rates than normal.

Monday brought in $647 million in online sales, a 26 percent increase over the same day a year ago. The tally for November 1 to December 5 this year is $13.68 billion, a 25 percent spike over last year.
