The holidays are fast approaching which means it’s time to pick up those last minute gifts for your loved ones. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you’ve lost your chance to get a great holiday deal. Our favorite day to do our holiday shopping is on Green Monday! Check out what you need to know about Green Monday to wrap up your holiday gift list.

What is Green Monday?

Similar to it’s Cyber Monday counterpart, Green Monday is a day on which retailers offer special holiday discounts. That way we get our last minute holiday shopping in without breaking the bank. On the second Monday of every December, major retailers participate in the occasion. This year’s Green Monday is December 12, 2016.

History of Green Monday.

Green Monday began in 2007. After noticing an uptick in sales in December, eBay held it’s first Green Monday as an incentive for shoppers to find online deals before the holidays. After much success, other major retailers have followed suit.

Last year, Green Monday retail sales were $1.408 trillion. That did not beat the all-time record of $1.615 trillion set in 2014!

That was a 15.3 percent increase over 2013. Only Cyber Monday saw greater sales, at $2.5 billion.

Both Green Monday and Cyber Monday follow the bricks-and-mortar shopping done on Black Friday, the first shopping day after Thanksgiving. However, the online days set greater records each year as more people enjoy the convenience of shopping with their computers, tablets, and phones.

Like Cyber Monday, Green Monday is more appealing to Millennials and Gen X. Sixty percent of those under 40 buy their holiday gifts online, compared to just 40 percent of Baby Boomers.
