Missed out on Cyber Monday? Still opportunity for some deals
Shoppers who didn’t finish their shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday still have other opportunities to find some deals.
The holiday shopping season got off to a sluggish start.
The National Retail Federation found shoppers spent an average of $407 over Thanksgiving weekend, four percent less than they did in the same time span last year.
This marks the first decline since 2009.
In fact, 141 million Americans shopped in stores or online during the four-day weekend.
131 million were expected to shop online on Cyber Monday.
For others still working on their lists, big days are still ahead between now and Dec. 25.
The second Monday in December is known as “Green Monday,” which is a huge day for retail.
It doesn’t get the same buzz as Cyber Monday but the deals are usually just as good.
Online shoppers can also take advantage of “Free Shipping Day” on Dec. 18.
Hundreds of E-tailers will participate with delivery guaranteed by Christmas.
Procrastinators, there’s a day just for you.
This year, it falls on Dec. 21.
The Saturday before Christmas has come to be known as “Super Saturday,” for the big bucks retailers to rake in from last-minute gift buying.
It also marks one of the last big days for stores to clear holiday inventory, meaning discounts may come to those who wait.
