Black Friday sales were up 7% this year over 2014 while Thanksgiving Day sales jumped 16%, according to Slice Intelligence's analysis of online sales data. Not only that, but the weeks leading up to the biggest shopping day of the year saw a 14% boost with many sales starting early, reports TechCrunch. How did individual stores fare? Amazon is clearly happy after reporting its best holiday shopping weekend ever for Amazon devices. But that's not all the site has to be cheering. Here are the five retailers with the biggest shares of online spending on Black Friday:

  1. Amazon: 35.7%
  2. Best Buy: 8.23%
  3. Macy's: 3.38%
  4. Walmart: 3.35%
  5. Nordstrom: 3.11%
