Green Monday Friends & Family Sales 2013

If you’ve never heard of Green Monday you’re not alone. It was coined by eBay back in 2007 when they noticed that the second Monday in December had record breaking sales. ComScore said that last year, “Green Monday reached $1.275 billion in spending, ranking as the third heaviest online spending day for the season to-date.”
