Paul Nelson, KSL NewsradioMany Utah companies are banking on a lot of online sales this "Cyber Monday."

Officials from Overstock.com knew "Cyber Monday" would be big, but CEO Patrick Byrne says it could be the biggest day in company history.

"In early November, they [customers] come in and kick the tires and they look around, but they don't buy as much. Now, they come and they buy," says Byrne.

Along with Overstock.com, some industry analysts say one company that should do well is the BYU Bookstore. They say the football and basketball teams are looking pretty good.

Politis Communications President David Politis says, "Parents and loved ones around the country, they'll think, ‘Suzy's going to BYU. I'll buy Suzy a sweatshirt, or something.'"

Politis says Deseret Book, Backcountry.com, Campchef.com and Hobbytron.com should make a lot of money when the dust settles.
