Cyber Monday sets record sales

Posted: Updated:

Retailers hit a new sales record on Cyber Monday.

Adobe Analytics reports yesterday is likely to end up being the biggest U.S. online shopping day ever as shoppers spent more than $6.6 billion.

The research arm of software maker Adobe says that's a nearly 17 percent increase over last year's Cyber Monday.

In every time zone, most of the traffic occurred between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., or right before the midnight deals expired.
