Alright procrastinators, I have a little holiday gift for you. Each and every year, A large list of retailers participate in what is called “Free Shipping Day“. This is close to the last day for regular shipping in order to gifts to arrive before Christmas. These retailers all provide free shipping offers on this day to provide you with an additional incentive to make a purchase. Check out my coupons page to see if you can find one for your favorite retailer that is participating. If you like to wait to get your Christmas gifts, then why not take advantage of Free Shipping Day. I have taken part in Free Shipping Day in the past and it has been great. There are so many retailers that take part in this, and many of them still provide heavy discounts to online buyers.
As of the creation of this post, there are 1,127 retailers that will be participating in Free Shipping Day. At midnight on 12/17/2012, FreeShippingDay.com will reveal all of the free shipping offers from these retailers. You can even get an email sent to you with a nice reminder of the day. Since each retailer has a different shipping deadline, the website has put together a nice list of all participating retailers and their shipping cutoff times.
If you are looking for a good deal and want free shipping, then I would wait until Free Shipping Day. These retailers confirm that they will be able to deliver by Christmas Eve, barring any shipping interruptions beyond their control. If you like to procrastinate, along with hating standing in line at the store, then shop online and do it on Free Shipping Day!
