Americans are expected to shell out $6.6 billion online the Monday after Thanksgiving, while Black Friday is expected to rake in $5 billion in online sales.

U.S. shoppers had splurged more than $1.52 billion online by evening time on Thanksgiving.

Sears Holdings, which earlier this year warned there is "substantial doubt" it can remain in business, started its Black Friday sales at the beginning of November, putting virtually everything in both Sears and Kmart on sale. More retailers are launching sales (or at least, their websites) like Amazon, Walmart and eBay for trigger-happy shoppers hoping to get their buying done ahead of time.

Experts say Thanksgiving is a good day to find deals on video games and sporting goods, while Black Friday is the day to shop for televisions, tablets, jewelry and appliances.
