Free Shipping Day: Why it matters and where to shop

Why it matters

Free Shipping Day is here, so if you haven’t ordered your holiday gift yet, now is the perfect time to take advantage of free shipping. Free standard shipping only comes once a year in mid-December so if you just got paid this Friday, December 14, you can beat the holiday rush by shopping online. This one-day offer means that if you order before midnight tonight, your order is guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas Day. And with Christmas just 11 days away now is the time to shop.

This decade-long event of waiving shopping fees was made for online shopping enthusiasts who hate paying that extra shipping fee. Thousands of retailers participate in the made-up holiday. While many places already offer free shipping on orders over a certain price, this offer is great for placing orders of any price and size.

Where to shop

Retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy already offer free shipping, and Target recently launched free two-day shipping just for the holiday period. Other merchants like WalmartNordstrom, Kohl’s and more offer free shipping after a minimum dollar purchase. Take a look at some of the ongoing sales to go with your free shipping from some of those merchants below.
