Green Monday occurs on the second Monday of December every year, this year it will be on Monday, December 11th. Green Monday is widely known as the last day to order items online and still have them delivered in time for Christmas. eBay is credited for coining the phrase Green Monday in 2007, with only 10 shipping days left until Christmas consumers were eager to get their last-minute orders in. The second Monday in December was one of eBay’s most profitable sales days, bringing in a lot of “Green “, hence the name was born.
Over the past few years, Green Monday has emerged as the third-largest shopping day of the year for most retailers. We’re expecting to see lots of hot deals online this week.
