Buy one get one free, free shipping, 30, 40, 50 percent off sales. All online.
It's not Black Friday, it's Cyber Monday, and you still have a few hours till it's over.
While many stores have resumed their normal day-to-day traffic, purchases have sky-rocketed. And there are about 122 million shoppers taking their gift buying to an online source.
Which is a positive sign for the economy because in 2010 Cyber Monday sales topped $1 billion, and today's sales are expected to exceed that.
But not everyone will participate today.
"I came here today because i didn't want to have to deal with all the online shopping and trying to find the best deals, and couponing and all of that and plus kind of getting bumped out of sites... sometimes that happens when there's too much traffic," Karen Hansen said while shopping at Target.
Another concern is safety. Some people we spoke with don't feel comfortable ordering online.
But overall, it seems the convenience of online shopping isn't going away.
"I will probably do all of my shopping online, I just didn't do it today," Hansen said.
