Why Some Target Cyber Monday Shoppers May Briefly Have to Wait Their Turn

Big deals mean big traffic -- which can cause some sites to temporarily go down.

Some visitors to the retailer's website this morning were greeted with a stop light and a message asking them to "please hold tight."

"So sorry, but high traffic's causing delays. If you wouldn't mind holding, we'll refresh automatically & get things going ASAP," the message said. For the first time, Target is offering customers 15 percent off virtually everything on its site using a CYBER15 discount code.

Target is also offering online door-busters and various deals throughout what the company is calling Cyber Week, making today an incredibly popular shopping day.
