US shoppers went mad online last week, spending more than $2bn and breaking all records.
Researcher Comscore Networks said that the figure reflected a 34 per cent growth over last year's post-Thanksgiving week.
Spending on non-travel goods and services increased 38 per cent on a year ago to a record $1.4bn, while travel spending increased 24 per cent to $567m.
Most of the increases were in the home and garden category, up 72 per cent to $328m; sports and fitness, up 67 per cent to $153m; and jewellery and watches, up 66 per cent to $121m.
