Christmas is good around the corner, and given that so many of us are shopping for gifts remotely this year, you might still be looking for discounts. Green Monday is the shopping holiday made by eBay. Historically, the second Monday in December has been the busiest retail day of the month, hence the name of the money-themed day.
It might be a weird day you’ve never heard of, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great deals. We scoured the web for the best deals on this Green Monday, many of which matched the prices we saw Black Friday and Cyber Monday a few weeks ago.
