If last year's figures are any indication, more and more Americans will be doing at least some of their holiday shopping online. According to comScore, Inc., Americans spent $29.2 billion online between November 1 and December 31, 2007, up 19 percent over the previous year.  On Thanksgiving Day alone, consumers ordered $270 million in gifts before tucking into their turkey and cranberry sauce. The shopping season reached its high point on Monday, December 10, when Americans reached for their credit cards and clicked their way through $881 million in purchases.
