Green Monday, anyway? Get excited because it’s one of the biggest shopping days (only second to Cyber Monday) between Cyber Monday and Christmas. Although Green Monday isn’t as widely known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday it is an important day for retailers and holiday shoppers. Retailers rake in last-minute sales, while shoppers enjoy some spectacular savings (many one-day-only deals) and their packages arrive on time for gift-giving.
Green Monday always takes place on the second Monday in December (a few days before Free Shipping Day). However, the date changes from year to year. In 2023, this means the special shopping day falls on Dec. 11.
