Holiday Online Shopping

Just 14 days left until the jolliest day of the year.

So you better start getting your gifts ready.

If you are heading online and hoping for extras like free shipping you may be disappointed.

Many online stores offered discounts last year to boost their sales.

This year, some stores are doing enough business they do not have to offer those perks.

If you look closely enough you can still find shipping discounts at some of the biggest online stores like Amazon.

And, those online sales are hitting a fever pitch.

Retail analysts estimate sales for those sites will hit $32 billion this year.

Those numbers have been seeing double digit increases for the past several years.

Shoppers are taking advantage of the sometimes-lower prices and convince compared to the traditional brick and mortar stores.

Of course the $32 billion total is still just a fraction of the approximately $300 billion brought in by non-online retailers.
