Mobile devices, especially smartphones, led the record surge in Cyber Monday sales, according to IBM.
Purchases made on mobile devices surged 55.4% year-over-year, and made up 17% of Monday's total online sales, according to IBM's e-commerce report.
Smartphones were more popular for making purchases than Tablets, said IBM.
This is in stark contrast to Black Friday sales, which fell 13.2% from the prior year, according to ShopperTrak, a retail industry firm. But that's partly because many retailers, including Toys 'R' Us, WalMart (Fortune 500), , Target (Fortune 500) and , Best Buy (Fortune 500), opened their doors on Thanksgiving Thursday, cutting into the traditional Black Friday sales. ,
ShopperTrak said sales for Black Weekend, which spans Thanksgiving Day through Sunday, crept up 1% compared to last year.
