In 2009, eBay noticed something interesting: The second Monday in December was its best sales day of the month. The auction site referred to the day as Green Monday, and it didn't take long for other retailers to run with the name and transform it into a shopping holiday. Green Monday falls right around mid December, making it one of the last opportunities to shop in time for Christmas.
Before you deep dive into shopping on December 10, here are a few things to remember.
This is the final major push from online retailers before the holidays hit. If you spent all of Black Friday and Cyber Monday buying treats for yourself (it's OK, we did too), look for the following categories to finish holiday shopping for friends and family.
Clothing retailers tend to offer a site wide discount on Green Monday (think Levi's and GAP). Department stores, on the other hand, may offer varying discounts. Macy's, for example, has a dedicated page full of Green Monday sales to scoop up.
Hop on over to Amazon, Walmart and eBay for top deals on the most wanted products of the year. With pages dedicated to Green Monday discounts, finding everything on your list fast is easy from these retailers.
Look to stores like Walmart to find varying deals on small kitchen appliances, home decor and more.
