So-called “Cyber Monday” may get all the attention, but as Steven Musil of CNet reports, last week was no slouch when it came to online shopping:

The past week was the heaviest five-day online shopping period in U.S. history, according to a new report that shows consumers are spending more online than they did last year.

During the week of December 8 through 14, U.S. consumers spent $6.9 billion online, an 11 percent increase over 2011, according to data released today by market analyst ComScore.

All told, some $33 billion has been spent online so far since the holiday shopping season started. Not too shabby.
