Green Monday deals have inspired frantic online shopping much like Cyber Monday deals inspired late last month. The reason for so much shopping is because people are finally getting incredibly serious about their holiday shopping.
The term Green Monday was coined by eBay in 2007. This is the fourth year, and retailers expect consumers to spend a billion plus today. Cyber Monday brought in $1.25 billion in online shopping, and the second Monday in December is typically the biggest sales day of the year, so it is likely that spending will surpass one and a quarter billion.
The biggest online retailer Amazon.com chose to continue its holiday deals from Black Friday and Cyber Monday as the biggest online shopping day of the year hits. Each day the website adds more deals until December 23, so shoppers can check each day to find the best deals on gifts they still need to buy. They have great deals on electronics like this LG 42 inch LED-LCD HDTV with a savings of $300.
Retailers like Sears and Kmart are offering as much as 60 percent off if you buy today. Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic offer 30 percent off today online. Of course, if you continue holding out until Friday, December 16, you can get in on Free Shipping Day, which could also save you a bundle.
Have you done any online shopping this holiday season? If not, are you making a purchase today on Green Monday? What types of deals have you seen? Do you think they are better this year than in years past?
