After only about 1 month they are predicting to hit the 1 million mark by this week.  Pretty amazing.  Also they will be rolling out a rewards program
for people who shop with bitcoin.

This is exactly what merchants need to do to drum up bitcoin business.  Like I've said before, there is no incentive to shop with BTC if you don't already have some.  No one is going to go thru the hassle of obtaining BTC just to shop with them, unless there is some benefit to using them, such as a discount, free shipping, or a rewards program like overstock is doing.  Good job Overstock!!

Yeah, the CEO of Overstock is such a renegade. There's a great article on him over in the Press section. I hope him/them accepting/dealing with BTC really pays off for them.

Agreed. A million more in sales per month is no small potatoes.

People cry on the back of a bit of bad news, but the more merchants keep accepting it the price will gradually grow. I'm sure we'll see many more merchants adopt BTC over the course of the year.

I wish so much that they could expand their product offerings.

I now go there instead of Amazon.com for everything first.   50% of the time they don't have what I need so I end up buying at Amazon.com, but I am glad I can at least get some of my stuff now through Overstock.

If they had more, Amazon would be history for me.

I encourage everyone who shops amazon to start checking Overstock for the item first, and buying with Bitcoin.

This is fairly impressive. A million in a month I think is around 0.8-1.2% of their monthly revenues. The true test is the sustainability of sales in BTC.

Nonetheless, this is good news and could likely pave the way for more major businesses to begin accepting BTC.

I didn't know they are holding some of their acquired Bitcoins.  That is even bigger news.  Any gain (i.e. difference between value of BTC at time of sale and time of report) is reported separately.  Since they are a publicly traded company they will have to report it.  That would be a first.  If it becomes large enough it might even become its own line item in the quarterly and annual reports.

Since they exchange immediately for fiat, it doesn't scare them that much..
