Walmart set Cyber Monday sales record too
There were more than 1 billion page views on Walmart.com from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday, which the retailer said made for record sales.
Walmart said Cyber Monday 2013 was the biggest online sales day in its history and that the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday was the highest five-day stretch in online sales to date, but stopped short of disclosing actual sales results.
The company did say that top selling items on Cyber Monday included an LG brand 50" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV, the Apple iPad 2 16GB with Wi-Fi, Fisher-Price Power Wheels Red Ford F150 Raptor 12-Volt Battery-Powered Ride-On, Mega Bloks First Builders Build 'n Learn Table Plus Bonus Play Set, TRIO Stealth G2 10.1" Tablet Dual Core with 16GB Memory and tilting wall mounts for flat panel televisions.
"We had an all-time record sales day yesterday as the momentum we saw on Thanksgiving carried through to Cyber Monday," said Joel Anderson, president and CEO, Walmart.com U.S. "We're committed to giving our customers the best savings on the gifts they want most this holiday season, and we're offering 200 online specials every day through Friday so customers can make the most of their budgets."
Walmart is offering free shipping on all orders greater than $35.
