Missed Out on Black Friday? Don’t Worry—There Are Still Good Deals Ahead


Good news: Black Friday and Cyber Monday don’t mark the end of the season’s sales; they’re just the beginning. Mark these December dates on your calendar now to save on the rest of your holiday spending.

Green Monday: December 10

Cyber Monday’s fashionably late twin, which falls on the second Monday in December, used to be the last day you could order online to guarantee arrival by Christmas. However, thanks to Amazon Prime essentially changing the online shopping game, many retailers now promise on-time delivery for purchases made through December 22 or 23.

Still, Green Monday offers online shoppers big deals similar to those found on Black Friday—plus a few new incentives. Last year, Target gave customers 20 percent off for every $100 spent on home, beauty products and accessories.

Free Shipping Day: December 14

Free Shipping Day began just over a decade ago as another way of extending e-commerce holiday shopping later into the calendar year. Today, it offers late-in-the-season discounts (not just free shipping!) at more than 1,000 retail partners, like Kate Spade, L.L. Bean, GAP, Overstock and Vans.

Super Saturday: December 22

For the particularly white-knuckley among us, the Saturday before Christmas can be a prime time to grab last-minute gift deals. Super Saturday regularly draws more than 100 million customers, largely to brick-and-mortar stores—whether for in-person purchases or as part of a growing trend of online same-day store pickup.

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday may shine as days to buy heavily discounted electronics, Super Saturday is a great time to get those eleventh-hour kids’ toys.
