Are you going to let work get in the way of Cyber Monday sales? Probably not, says the National Retail Federation.
According to a recent survey by the NRF, more than 121 million shoppers plan on scouring the Internet for Cyber Monday deals, down from 126.9 million last year. A whopping 10 percent of those consumers—more than 12 million people—plan to use their work computer to score deals online.
A survey conducted by RetailMeNot found that 95 percent of employed consumers plan to shop online while at work this year, up from 85 percent last year.
The coupon website estimated that these shoppers will spend an average of four hours shopping while in the office, with 14 percent planning to spend more than five hours searching for deals.
Additionally, workplace productivity could take a hit on Cyber Monday as 35 percent of American employees reported that they would be willing to take a day off of work in order to shop online, according to the survey. An additional 28 percent said they would work from home and another 28 percent would take a half day.
