Friday Freebie: Free Shipping from Online Merchants

December 12, 2008

in Sale, Shopping, Travel, USA, Web Tips

Still doing your holiday shopping, or just need to pick up a couple last-minute gifts? Avoid the crush at the mall by ordering those items online — and, if you time it right, enjoy the benefit of free shipping, too!

Free Shipping Day logoHundreds of online merchants are participating in Free Shipping Day on (and only on) Thursday, December 18 — the last day most will guarantee Christmas Eve delivery on regularly shipped items.  (Click on the link above to see a partial list of participants.) Not sure if your preferred merchants are participating and can’t tell from their website?  Contact their customer support and ask!

Just because the offer is timed for the holidays doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of it for your own personal ends — to pick up that guidebook you’ve been meaning to on Overstock, for example, or to order some hiking boots or comfortable sandals for next summer’s travel adventures from Zappos.

Thanks to Frugal Hacks for the tip!

I am loving the free shipping tools. I also save all the on-line coupons I get. 25 percent here, 15 percent there. It all helps!
