Holiday Online Spending Rose in the US

 

New figures show that holiday spending online in the United States was up 5% in 2009, compared with the same period the year before. Overall holiday sales reached US$27.12 billion from the beginning November through until Christmas Eve in the US.

However, there was an extra shopping day compared with 2008, and when the figures were adjusted, they reflected a 3.5% rise. Consumer electronics were the biggest hit, rising over 20% for the holiday period.

Jewellery and watches also did well. In 2008 online sales fell 3%, compared with the holiday season in 2007.

I got the most awesome winter coat, my first brand new one since I was 21 and pregnant, and it cost me $7(Yes SEVEN)and mens flannel Pajama pants for $5 each! Thanks to those who voted for me in the Newser contests I was able to use that to get both girls a MP3 player for $7.49 each along with some books and even got myself a small sewing machine(well the kids and hubby got it*wink*) that can do all the basic home jobs for $24.89. I love shopping online and I even got my mom to shop online this year. We still hit the stores like Family Dollar and Dollar General to see if there is anything neat and from DG I got these cute and spacy 12 month calandars that was a steal at $1 and I looked at some in the Hallmark store with the same exact picture covered in plastic for $6.99. I love online shopping and I don´t have to worry about someone hurting my back or doing damage to it and my leg. Online forever!

  First it was  
 
America is too reckless spending too much, cheap credit, not enough savings, now the economy is stagnant, because no spending, the banks folded, and the stock-market soaked up many of our life´s savings if lawyers are mouth pieces Politicians are full of shite....
