Three More Holiday Deal Days in December

Posted: Updated:

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, but that doesn't mean holiday shoppers have missed the best deals of the season. There are a few other key dates to keep in mind.

Millions have shopped, billions have been spent... but those who missed out on Thanksgiving night, Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials still have plenty of big shopping days left.

For starters, major retailers like Amazon, Target, Walmart and Best Buy are stretching "Cyber Monday" deals through a "Cyber Week."

In the past, e-tailers noticed a spike in sales on the second Monday in December, when consumers realize they're getting tight on shipping time. In 2007, eBay gave that day a name: "Green Monday." This year,  Green Monday falls on Monday, December 10, along with special deals from many retailers.

Monday, December 17, brings the fifth annual "Free Shipping Day," when hundreds of retailers will offer free shipping and other special offers to online shoppers, with delivery to the lower 48 states guaranteed by Christmas Eve.

By December 22, it's usually too late for online purchases, so the last Saturday before Christmas has come to be known as "Super Saturday," when shoppers rush in to stores for last-minute purchases, and retailers make a last-ditch effort to get merchandise off the shelves, usually at deep discounts.
