"This past workweek saw four days surpass the billion dollar spending threshold during the heaviest five-day online shopping period on record," said comScore chairman Gian Fulgoni. "With this most recent week in the books, the peak spending period may now be in our rear-view-mirror – but the online holiday shopping season is not over yet. We should have one more headline day on Free Shipping Day this Monday the 17th as the procrastinators among us scramble to order gifts in time for Christmas next week. For the season-to-date, the growth rate based on corresponding days last year is 13 percent. But, with two extra shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, we still expect that the full season will realize a growth rate well north of 13 percent."

Top Ten Online Spending Days in History

For the 2012 holiday season-to-date, eleven individual days have surpassed $1 billion in online retail sales, already surpassing last year's record of ten shopping days. Cyber Monday (Nov. 26, 2012) currently ranks as the heaviest online spending day of the season – and in history – at $1.465 billion. Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012 ranks second with $1.362 billion, followed by Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 (Green Monday) with $1.275 billion, Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012 with $1.263 billion and Monday, Nov. 28, 2011 (Cyber Monday 2011) with $1.251 billion.
