Shop Green Monday 2018 Deals with Coupons and Cash Back

Green Monday, the second Monday in December — Dec. 10 this year — was dubbed that because green is the color of money. It’s the most popular shopping day in December, coming less than two weeks before the biggest holiday of the year.

How to Find the Best Green Monday 2018 Deals

Have Your Gift List at the Ready

Now is the time to revisit your holiday gift list. If you didn’t buy for someone on your list on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, check out Green Monday deals to complete your shopping. You can also purchase generic extras such as home decor items, chocolates or gift baskets to take to unexpected gatherings that may pop up during the holidays.

Look for Last-Minute Discounts

Items that haven’t sold out on Black Friday or Cyber Monday could be discounted further on Green Monday as stores clear out inventory. Special savings may be found on big-ticket items such as household appliances, including the new stove or high-tech refrigerator you’ve been wanting in time for holiday cooking. Or, on the opposite end of the gift spectrum, seek out smaller, less expensive and more plentiful price-reduced items that make great stocking stuffers, including novelty socks, handheld electronic games or fabulous costume jewelry.

Shop Small Businesses

Although most big online and brick-and-mortar stores have known about Green Monday for a while, the less frequented ones are finally following suit. Green Monday is the time to check out boutiques, specialty shops and other small retailers that are deeply discounting inventory to compete.

Compare Prices on Previous Purchases

Keep the receipts from your Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases to compare the prices on the same items on Green Monday. Many stores will match the price if the items are further discounted on Green Monday. If they don’t price match and the item is sold out on Green Monday, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you got it before it was no longer available. It’s a win-win!
