We told you yesterday that Black Friday broke records this year for retail sales, but now the numbers are in and Cyber Monday was also a big hit.

According to International Business Machines Corp's IBM Benchmark, online sales were up by 20% as of yesterday afternoon versus the same time last year.

Last year, Cyber Monday sales reached $1 billion, but this year’s final sales are expected to surpass that figure.

Reveals a rep:

"We expect most shopping to come from laptops and PCs during the day with mobile shopping activity picking up later.”

Did U buy anything this past Cyber Monday?
