Green Monday Sales: Christmas Sales

Now that Cyber Monday and Black Friday have passed, we’re shifting gears to focus on Christmas Sales and Holiday Shopping Deals here at FatWallet.  If you still have lots of gifts left to buy on your list, don’t worry! There are plenty more holiday sales yet to come. Although it’s not as well known as Cyber Monday, today is Green Monday, one of the best online shopping days of the season.

What is Green Monday?

You might be surprised that the 2nd Monday in December is one of the largest online holiday shopping event of the season! “Green Monday” was believed to be coined by eBay in 2007, when it was determined as their best sales day in December. Since many were shopping online rather than driving to the stores, eBay decided the name was fitting.

You can expect some of the best deals of the season on Green Monday from many online retailers! The statistics portal, Statista, states that last year we spent 1.4 billion in the US on Green Monday. Green Monday is the busiest day of the year for FedEx Corporation, since it is the peak for online shopping, FedEx expects to see about 19 million packages, up from 17.2 million Green Monday in 2011.

Of those polled on our FatWallet’s 2012 Online Holiday Shopping Survey, 52% had never heard of Green Monday and only 24% had participated in the event. But 96% of those who shopped on Green Monday last year plan to shop again this year! Since 2007, Green Monday has gained momentum from other top online retailers, including Walmart, Macy’s, Amazon, and more!
