(WXYZ) — If you didn't get all your shopping done last week or even before that, never fear, as December deals are here!

Just like Black Friday stretched into weeks of deals, Cyber Monday become Cyber Week and it seems there are new sales every other day.

So, when will you find the best new deals from now until Christmas?

Dealnews.com broke down several dates for us.

  • Green Monday – Dec. 7 or Dec. 14 depending on the retailer. It's a great time to order from smaller stores.
  • Dec. 14 is Free Shipping Day, the last day for guaranteed Christmas delivery from many stores
  • Dec. 15 is traditionally when prices start to drop
  • Dec. 20 is when prices get slashed on winter clothing that hasn't sold yet

But this year, there's a risk of waiting too long to order online. After Dec. 14, you're pushing your luck ordering online unless you are willing to pay for priority shipping.

With online shopping up 30% this pandemic year, Amazon, FedEx and UPS are expecting a crush of orders, so shop as early as possible.
