What Is Green Monday? Find the Best Deals and Everything You Need to Know

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be behind us, but the year’s biggest sales don’t stop there. Next up is Green Monday, happening today only.

What is Green Monday?

Green Monday is touted as the third-largest shopping day of the year, behind Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It falls on the second Monday of every December.

Why is today called Green Monday?

‘Green Monday’ was coined by eBay in 2007 based on the uptick in sales the site made from last-minute shoppers (it turned out to be the site’s biggest shopping day of the year). Now other retailers have adopted the term and used it for holiday sales. According to MarketWatch, it’s named after the color of money, and it refers to the surge of consumers making their holiday gift purchases in time for them to be delivered by Christmas.

What are the best Kohl’s Green Monday deals?

While Kohl’s doesn’t have a specific deal for Green Monday, the retailer is offering major discounts that extend through the end of the month. As of Dec. 9, you can take 15 percent off any order or 20 percent off $100 or more with the code USAVEMORE. And if you’re a Kohl’s cardholder, you can take an extra 30 percent off your entire order with code JOY30, plus free shipping when you use code DECFREEMVC at checkout. All three promotions end Dec. 24.
