Cyber-Shopping! Yes. you hustle with your fingers and not your feet!

Here is a new study that we sent to media.

As the holiday shopping season kicks off in the U.S., Canadians will be going online to hunt for cross-border shopping deals. A new survey conducted by Ipsos Reid on behalf of Visa Canada showed that nearly 44 per cent of Canadian online shoppers say they are likely to take advantage of discounts offered on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (the days following American Thanksgiving) by shopping at American online merchants – a 10 per cent increase over last year.
