Majority to Shop on the Clock This Cyber Monday

Some holiday gifts may get crossed off a little early this year, as a majority of professionals plan to hunt for deals from their office on Cyber Monday.

In total, a whopping 71% said they plan to spend some amount of time online shopping while at the office on Cyber Monday, according to an Office Pulse study of 346 white-collar workers across the US and Canada.

While the numbers were high across all demographics, slightly more women (74%) than men (67%) said they’ll online shop at work the Monday after Thanksgiving. As one might expect, there was also a slight age-gap: 80% of Millennials and 74% of Gen Xers plan to do some sort of online shopping that day, compared to just 55% of Baby Boomers.

Adobe Analytics predicted that Cyber Monday will break records, with $9.4 billion in sales this year, a massive 18.9% spike compared to last year.
