Now we have "Green Monday" and "Green Tuesday" promotions??? "Super Saturday" is next!!

submitted on December 8, 2014 by HouTex in "Sales / Promotions"
I don't remember seeing "Green Monday" deals before, but I looked it up and discovered that it's been around for a few years. See http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-green-monday.htm
It has nothing to do with ecology, they're calling it "green" because it refers to the money retailers hope to take in on those days. Mr Green

These are a few of the promotions:

Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Green-Mo.....g=b0c55-20

Best Buy - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/gl.....ksdevice=c


Retailers are doing everything they can to get shoppers to spend more, with free shipping, early promotions, convenient ways to use mobile devices, and hard-to-beat online deals. Apparently Green Monday is the second Monday in December, a week after Cyber Monday (or Cyber Week, since those deals lasted all week). And, according to reports, the deals will spill over into tomorrow for Green Tuesday!
Then next up there's "Super Saturday," the Saturday before Christmas, on December 20th this year.
1. Have you heard of "Green Monday" before this year?
 Yes
 No
2. How do additional "deal" days affect your shopping?
 Doesn't matter to me.
 I'm planning to shop then for better discounts.
3. Do you think there are really any better deals offered on those days?
 Yes
 No

    I think they have opened this because of biggest failure of black Friday.

    I thought Black Friday was when retailers turn from 'red' to 'black' (start making money). Never heard of 'green monday'

      from wiki:

      The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.[7][8] Use of the term started before 1961 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. Later an alternative explanation was made: that retailers traditionally operated at a financial loss ("in the red") from January through November, and "Black Friday" indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or "in the black".[7][9]
