NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. shoppers are still spending heavily online after a record-busting "Cyber Monday."
Research firm comScore says shoppers spent nearly $6 billion online on Monday through Friday last week, a record.
On Cyber Monday itself, sales reached $1.25 billion, the biggest online shopping day in history. Online sales on Tuesday and Wednesday also broke $1 billion.
Cyber Monday sales topped $1 billion for the first time last year.
ComScore says online sales are up 15 percent to $18.7 billion in November and the first two days of December, compared with the same period last year.
Free shipping appears to be a big draw, applying to 63 percent of sales, up from 52 percent a year ago.
ComScore's spending figures exclude travel, auctions and large corporate purchases.
