Green Monday Deals is the best place in the world to find regurgitated news about holiday shopping specials.
To swoop up all those great specials this holiday season, here are a few shopping holidays you should circle on your calendar (gray boxes indicate the highest grossing internet shopping days by Google in 2008):
Black Friday (November 27, 2009)
is the kick-start to the holiday shopping engine. With some of the best doorbuster deals of the year, over 172 million shoppers visited made purchases in stores or online in 2008. Every year, the holiday shopping specials get so cutthroat competitive that people die from trampling during the early morning store opening. Don’t get caught out in the cold this year. There are plenty of Cyber Monday specials and Green Monday deals to find in the comfort of your own house.
Cyber Monday (November 30, 2009)
was the first official online holiday shopping day. Back in the days of dial-up tones and America Online, internet shopping used to be a scary, time-consuming process. Under constant fear of credit card hackers and crashing web connections, people waited to make their purchases at work where the internet was faster and more reliable.
Nowadays, it seems like anyone with the knowhow to make an online purchase already has high-speed internet. But that’s no reason to forget about Cyber Monday specials. Internet shopping trends rise on this date every year, which means companies are willing to offer exclusive online holiday shopping deals and begin their free shipping service.
Green Monday (December 14, 2009)
is the last day to catch an online holiday shopping special until after the holidays. Green Monday has nothing to do with the environment – it’s all about money. Ebay first coined the term ‘Green Monday’ to celebrate their highest earning day of the year when they realized sales peaked on the second Monday of December. Since Green Monday falls two-week before Christmas, it’s one of the last days of the year companies offer free shipping.
Wither you’re a procrastinating shopper ducking extra shipping costs, or you’re trying to find a great last minute deal, Green Monday Deals is the place to look for all your holiday shopping specials.
