Amazon did say that the busiest day for their online store was December 12 when they sold around 3.6 million items.

Market reports from ComScore Networks reveals that the online sales in the U.S. are expected to jump 24 percent to about $19 billion in November and December. The driving force between this growth is the convenience of ordering items sitting from home.

This would give them a regular base of repeated clientele.
