Cyber Monday set to become biggest US online shopping day

Cyber Monday was on track to bring in a record $7.8 billion in US online sales, but will also test the limits of retailers’ e-commerce operations as millions of shoppers scour for steep discounts on everything from Lego sets to big-screen TVs.

Retailers such as Target Corp are offering deliveries with no minimum order limits, pulling out all stops to get customers’ attention in a highly competitive market.

US retailers have also bombarded shoppers with thousands of promotional emails, but that drew the ire of several people who complained that they woke up to a deluge of cyber Monday emails compared to years past.

“Yes retailers, I’m aware it’s Cyber Monday even without the 150 emails,” tweeted Keina (@RealMamaEagle), a user from Delaware.
