Black Friday Sales Better Than Expected

by: Kristen Guilfoos

Amarillo, Texas - The final report is out... Americans spent more on this year's Black Friday than they did last year... But not by much.

We're talking about a difference of a half a percent.... Bringing this year's day after Thanksgiving shopping total to more than $10.5 billion.

If the crowds and chaos of Black Friday make you cringe, Monday may be the day you've been waiting for... Nicknamed Cyber Monday.

Millions of Americans are expected to log on at work on Cyber Monday surfing the web for bargain basement deals.

Shoppers can expect aggressive discounts, limited-time web exclusive special, and let's not forget free shipping... And lots of it.

This year, retailers are going more high tech than ever before... Cornering consumers not only through store websites, but through things like Twitter and Facebook too.
