eBay Expects Green Monday to Be One of Its Busiest Days


eBay logoeBay expects Monday, December 11th, to be one of its busiest holiday-shopping days, and will kick off new deals every hour on what is the 10th anniversary of Green Monday. Last year, Green Monday was its fourth highest sales day.

Press release follows:

On Monday, December 11, eBay will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Green Monday, historically one of the company’s busiest holiday shopping days, by launching new deals every hour, and offering shoppers amazing inventory across fashion, electronics, toys and home & garden. Green Monday extends holiday shopping deals, enabling shoppers to find last-minute gifts from millions of items available on eBay every day.

In 2007, eBay experienced one of its biggest sales days on the second Monday of December. In honor of the milestone, eBay named the day ‘Green Monday,’ a term that has since been widely adopted across the retail industry. Whether it’s shoppers logging on after the weekend, waiting for great last-minute deals or simply procrastinating, Green Monday continues to be a big online shopping day and ranked as eBay’s fourth highest sales day in 2016 and the third highest in 2015.

“Historically Green Monday has been one of the biggest shopping days of the year for eBay,” said Scott Cutler, Senior Vice President of eBay Americas. “We see a sense of urgency from shoppers to check people off their lists during this time of the year. On eBay, they’ll find great deals that include fast and free shipping, and we’ll be making it easier than ever to find and fulfill last-minute gift orders.”

To celebrate Green Monday, eBay will be releasing deals every hour, which include:

Bose Sound Systems (over 50% off)
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (38% off)
Samsung 75″ 4K LED UHD Flat Screen Panel HDTV with HDR (60% off)
Black & Decker Robotic Vacuum (68% off)
Best Choice 5-Piece Complete Drum Set (52% off)
KitchenAid® 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer (57% off)

Additionally, eBay will have daily Fashion deals and events throughout the week beginning on Green Monday, including:

Calvin Klein Outerwear (up to 65% off)
Casio G-Shock Watches (up to 60% off)
David Yurman Jewelry (30% off)

This year, eBay will be surface millions more items late into the holiday season. In addition, eBay will continue to offer Price Match Guarantee on more than 50,000 eBay Deals, ensuring shoppers get the best value on top gifts.[1]

In addition to being immediately available right up until Christmas (and beyond) eBay’s digital gift cards reflect unique styles, passions and hobbies for everyone on your list.
