Green Monday was a marketing campaign created by eBay, and it is supposedly the last day online shoppers can make purchases without having to pay extra shipping charges to get their packages by Christmas.
It is held on the second Monday in December, although many online merchants feel that this year's date for the event, Dec. 7, is too early. With Dec. 1 falling on a Monday this year, it threw online retailers into a huge debate, many saying Monday, Dec. 15, is a more accurate date for good shipping deals to end.
Regardless, the pressure is on to compete, so many retailers are offering special Green Monday deals. But as far as regular shipping fees and deadlines, we don't need to panic yet unless you are buying something over-sized. Most online retailers are set up to deliver through Dec. 15, 2009.
