If you overslept this morning and didn’t make it to the stores in time to get the doorbusters on your list, worry not my friend!
After all the preparations, scanning ads, loading deals, and buzzing in social it feels like the shopping soiree should be coming to a close, but smart shoppers know it’s only just beginning! There are a lot more fantastic frugal shopping days ahead. I’ll run through them in today’s post by helping you space out your holiday shopping and bargain hunting over the next few weeks!
Cyber Monday! Dec. 01, 2014
This is an easy one, you probably already know about! The Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday is dedicated to online shopping (our favorite kind!) Expect merchants to have deals as hot as the ones on Black Friday for their online stores!
According to our 2013 Cyber Monday Shopping Survey 78% of people expect to find the best deals of the holiday season on Cyber Monday! Of the people surveyed, 48% said they will be shopping on Cyber Monday in these categories:
- 34% for clothing deals
- 25% for toy deals
- 32% for books-magazine deals and music-movie deals
- 34% for gadget deals
- 19% for laptop deals
- 16% for tv deals
- 21% for mobile deals
- 20% for home deals
- 17% for shoe deals
Green Monday (Also Known As: Cyber Monday 1) is on Dec. 08 this year
Green Monday is the second Monday in December and the last big online holiday sales event of the shopping season. “Never heard of it,” was the response we got from most of the people surveyed and frankly, before I started working here I hadn’t heard of it either. The name Green Monday was coined by eBay in 2007 after analysts at the company realized it’s annually the best sales day in December for the site.
Expect to see some of the best deals of the season on Green Monday from your favorite online merchants! Surveys say, last year Green Monday was ranked as the third busiest online spending day of the season. Remember, December 09th is a great day to do your holiday shopping from home.
Free Shipping Day! Dec 18, 2014
You’ve gotta love free shipping because it takes away any excuse for shopping online! It’s the day best deals are made better because you can pocket all the savings without spending a penny to get the goods. Last year I did a lot of shopping on Free Shipping day for gifts for our out of town family members, shipping their presents directly to them.
Shop online on December 18th at hundreds of stores and you’ll receive free shipping with delivery in time for Christmas Eve! Hate waiting until the last minute? Check out the Coupons with Free Shipping, Sales with Free Shipping and Products with Free Shipping available now on FatWallet!
