In 2011, the average amount spent per individual on Black Friday was $398 totaling 52.4 billion dollars! Again, those numbers grew in 2012 with customers spending on average, $423 that totaled over 59 billion dollars!

Not only are people camping outside their favorite retail stores but, some customers are even scoring great deals online on Black Friday! The top five visited online retailers on Black Friday for 2012 were:
