    After all the Thanksgiving feasts and Black Friday madness, Cyber Monday allowed shoppers to get deals with the click of a mouse. Forbes Magazine reported that the top four companies on Cyber Monday were Amazon, Etsy an Amazon-type store, Motorola and EA Sports games. Most of the top companies pushed advertising through social media such as retweets on Twitter for sale codes and Facebook advertisements.

    Forbes also reported that half of all buyers on Cyber Monday were between 25-34 year-olds and 37 percent were 35-44 year-olds.

    Jewelry Warehouse manager Leland Morrison said they sent out email blasts to customers to make them aware of the deals on Cyber Monday.

    "Our main online deal is twenty percent off sitewide just for today. The code is right there when you bring up the site," Morrison said.

    Some of the 50 percent off items at the Cayce store included jewelry, infinity scarves, burlap purses and even free monogramming. Morrison said they expected Cyber Monday sales to go well after having a slower Black Friday. He said since the University of South Carolina football game was at Clemson this year, the store did not have the same amount of customers in town.

    "Black Friday I think overall was slower this year. But most consumers now are shopping online so we do well on Cyber Monday. We have some very high anticipation for some good sales," Morrison said.

      Global companies like Amazon and Target are having online sales throughout the week. Amazon revealed it will have sales through Sunday, part of their eight days of holiday sales.
