DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – With Black Friday visible in the rear-view mirror, Monday marks another holiday occasion. It’s the day of the online deal.

Millions of shoppers are expected to click on items on Monday as retailers rev up deals to grab online holiday shopping dollars on the first working day after the busy holiday weekend.

But this year so-called Cyber Monday seems to have stretched into Cyber Week or even Cyber Month, with retailers from Amazon to Wal-Mart rolling out online deals since the beginning of November.

Still, Cyber Monday is expected to be the busiest online shopping day of the year. Research firm comScore expects Cyber Monday expects sales of $2 billion, up from about $1.47 billion last year. Online sales account for about 10 percent of total holiday spending.

FedEx anticipates Dec. 2 to be the busiest day of the year, with an estimated 22 million shipments moving through its networks. That projected total will represent the busiest day in the history of FedEx and is more than double its typical daily volume.
