The latest batch of Cyber Monday 2013 sales figures indicate that it's been another good year for online retailers. Reportedly, as of 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday night, sales were already up 19% from last year, showing a good sign for web sales. The Cyber Week deals continue as of Tuesday, Dec. 3 as the sales will eventually phase into Green Monday deals.

A Dec. 3 report from Biz Journals out of San Francisco, notes that Monday’s online shopping was a single-day record, with sales up 19% from last year. Also, thirty percent of the shoppers buying the online deals used smartphones or tablets to make those purchases. The reports come about online shopping’s success as bad news has hit the retailers with “brick-and-mortar” stores, who saw their first decline in shopping over Black Friday weekend since 2009. This holiday featured more stores than ever opening earlier, including Thanksgiving Day hours as early as 5 or 6 p.m. at some stores.

Several sites are hosting Cyber Deals Week sales online through the rest of the week, with more deals expected to arrive through the remaining weeks leading to Christmas. Some of Amazon’s latest online deals for their sale include video games for 40% off or more, various TVs for 30% off or more, and laptops for 20% off or more. The Best Buy website is continuing to offer Cyber deals as well. Tuesday’s deals include laptops by HP, Toshiba and Asus for $500 or less, and in some cases less than $250. The 7th generation iPod Nano is $129.99, while Best Buy is also offering a $100 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of any Sprint smartphone as an online deal.

Cyber Deals Week will last at many of the aforementioned websites as well as other retail giants like Walmart and Target through this week. The Green Monday shopping day and accompanying sales arrive on Monday, Dec. 9, which some argue is an even bigger sales day than Cyber Monday.
