    Question…you’re showing the dates for this coming season…are these days consistent year to year, like if Dec. 12 was 3rd biggest day last year does that mean Dec. 10 will be 3rd biggest in 2012?

      These dates are fairly consistent for online shopping year to year, but can vary. For example, Green Monday was the third largest day in 2011 but was the second largest in 2010 and fifth in 2009. Cyber Monday will likely remain as the biggest day. For purposes of planning holiday email and online promotions, the rank order of these days is not as important as being prepared for all of them. Best of luck this holiday online season.
