E-commerce sales jumped 18.8 percent on Green Monday, Dec. 12, giving the U.S. its seventh billion-dollar day of Internet buying activity this holiday season as compared to just one, Cyber Monday, last year.
Reston, Va.-based ComScore reported Wednesday that Green Monday sales hit $1.13 billion, up from $954 million in 2010. This positions the day — the second Monday in December and historically the peak for online spending — as the third heaviest day for online shopping, behind only Cyber Monday, which this year fell on Nov. 28, and the first Monday of December. This year, Cyber Monday sales were up 21.7 percent, to $1.25 billion, while Dec. 5 sales rose 24.1 percent to $1.17 billion.
