School resumed Monday after a week off for Thanksgiving break but that didn’t stop some students from sneaking in some online shopping as they tried to take advantage of Cyber Monday deals.

“The Holiday deals really affected my shopping because I could see which stores cut down the most on prices and would look there to shop,” freshman Sydney Glover said via text. “Black Friday and Cyber Monday help me get my list of clothes I wanted for cheaper than any average day.”

A staple of the holiday season for the past 13 years, Cyber Monday completes one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year kicking off with Black Friday. A day dedicated to online shopping is projected to reach record highs for 2018, as sales are predicted to jump 18 percent from last year.

“They’re deals and it’s cheap,” senior Charlotte Maina said. “I’m claustrophobic so stores sometimes scare me. It’s really easy. I don’t do it every year. I try to save every other year so that I can get something bigger for myself.”

Dating back to 2005 when the term was coined, sales have skyrocketed since then and are forecasted to generate $7.8 billion  in 2018.

However some students such as senior Sophia Garofalo prefer an in person shopping experience after disappointing online experiences.

“Some things just didn’t fit right and then having to return something online is a pain when if you don’t like something in the store, you just go back to the store,” Garofalo said. “I hate shipping things back and I just won’t do it so then I’ll just be stuck with something I don’t like.”
