LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) --  Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, it doesn’t mean shoppers have missed out on the best deals of the season.

Millions have shopped and billions of dollars have been spent but those who missed out on the three blockbuster days of shopping still have plenty of time left.

Major retailers like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart and Best Buy are stretching “Cyber Monday” deals through a “Cyber Week.”

In the past, e-tailers noticed a spike in sales on the second Monday in December, when consumers realized they’re getting tight on shipping time.

In 2007, E-Bay gave that day a name “Green Monday”  and this year it falls on December 10 along with special deals from retailers.

Monday, December 17, brings the fifth annual “free shipping day” when hundreds of retailers will offer free shipping and other special offers to online shoppers with guaranteed Christmas Eve delivery by December 22 (lower 48 states).

The last Saturday before Christmas has come to be known as “Super Saturday” when shoppers rush into stores for last minute purchases and retailers make a last ditch effort to get merchandise off the shelves at deep discounts.
