In 2016, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday all set records for online sales. The shift to online buying during the holidays is set to continue apace for 2017.

Black November’s expansion means that shoppers are spreading out their buying over more days, but Thanksgiving weekend remains the most popular time of the month to nab a deal.

In 2015, shoppers spent an average of $299.60 during the weekend. For 2016, the average was $289.19. For 2017, expect shoppers to average $295.33 for the weekend spree.
