Black Friday 2016 has come and gone, and now consumers are turning the full force of their purchasing power on what has become the biggest e-commerce retail holiday over the years: Cyber Monday. Department stores that waged weeks-long promotional battles for the best discounts and savings will have one more chance to entice shoppers to drop as much as money as they possibly can before the holidays are over.
