The Amazon and Ebay Who Stole Christmas

Many of us are procrastinators, especially when it comes to purchasing gifts for others.  Maybe it is because we don't want to spend money, but usually it's just because we're not exactly sure what to get others.  Well good news is here, we can still order Amazon e-gift card for instant delivery by email.  This season, it looks not so good for brick-and-mortar stores.  In contrast, online retailers are the ones that are excelling, especially Amazon and Ebay.

As of right now, no solid figures have been released that would confirm this speculation.  However, there is lots of data that would suggest this to be true.  Just last week, ChannelAdvisor said that Amazon's same store sales surged 39% for the first half of December compared to last year, ebay went up 20.9%.  What do you guys think?  From my own personal experience, most things can be purchased online from the comfort of your home, and online prices are often better with steeper discounts.
