Get In On The Green Monday Shopping Frenzy

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - Every year, bargain hunters brace for Black Friday, click away for Cyber Monday, support local stores on Small Business Saturday, but now there's Green Monday?

WMDT scanned the Centre At Salisbury Mall to find just one person that has heard of this holiday. Out of six people, we had no luck.

eBay coined the term to describe its best sales day in December, which is usually the second Monday of the month. Experts say it's the first day of the busiest week of the year for retail, both online and in stores.

"Doesn't seem like it, this place is empty," said a shopper referring to the mall.

There's two reasons: many people haven't started shopping yet, and it's the last time to take advantage of free or super cheap shipping before time runs out. For example, Amazon and Walmart are offering free shipping Monday only.

"To be able to buy through the internet, its cheaper, saves time, I'm all for it," said shopper, Rich Johnson.

It gets better. Walmart has a 55 inch LED TV for almost half off at just $699. On Ebay, you can get a 64-gigabite iPad 2 for $300 cheaper at just $399. Macy's is also offering free shipping on items more than $99 and 15 to 20 percent off certain items.

Again, the sales are only being offered Monday December 10th.
