Free Shipping DayGet free shipping from online retailers, with delivery promised on or by Christmas Eve.

Free Shipping Day is Thursday December 18, 2014, and 839 stores are signed up (so far!) to give customers free shipping for orders taken on the 18th.  They say delivery will be by Christmas Eve for addresses in the continental United States.  All Free Shipping Day offers will be revealed on this website at 12:01am EST on Thursday, December 18, 2014.

Online merchants taking part include Cabelas, REI, The Body Shop, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Office Depot, Levi’s, American Eagle, Sheplers, J.Crew, Bass Pro Shops, Harry & David, Omaha Steaks, and a whole bunch more.

Participating Free Shipping Day merchants offer free holiday shipping with no minimum order. Others may have exclusions – for example the items must be in stock or oversized items are excluded (because Santa’s sleigh can’t deliver in time, I suppose.) Some also offer special discounts with Free Shipping Day. Check the details of each merchant’s offer on the Free Shipping Day website.

Amazon.com also has its regular free shipping on orders over $35 through December 16 for Christmas delivery. Find today’s deeply discounted Amazon.com flash deals here.

I’m always nervous of free shipping so close to Christmas as my Christmas tree has been left with holes under it in the past when the package didn’t roll in till after the Big Day. Now I generally pony up to pay shipping if it’s someone’s main gift, to avoid disappointment. However, the Free Shipping Day folk have said that many merchants pay for expedited shipping to get it to shoppers by Christmas Eve.

I’d always encourage you to shop from local businesses, but if you shop online at the national retailers anyway, perhaps to send gifts to distant friends or relatives, Free Shipping Day is a chance to save a few dollars on gifts.

Here’s a heads-up on how to get free shipping from online retailers, with delivery promised on or by Christmas Eve.

Free Shipping Day is on December 17, 2012, and over 1,200 stores are currently signed up to give customers free shipping on that day. They say delivery will be by Christmas Eve for addresses in the continental United States. Online merchants taking part include Lands’ End, LL Bean, Beauty.com, Eddie Bauer, The Cook’s Warehouse, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sears, Kohl’s, Harry & David, Best Buy, Radio Shack, REI, Cost Plus World Market, Tory Burch, Zappos, and a whole bunch more.

Many retailers will offer free holiday shipping on all orders. Others will have either a minimum order requirement, or offer free shipping on select items only. On Monday December 17 the full details of all participating merchants and the info on their offers will be shown on the Free Shipping Day website – but you know we’ll remind you too with a post on Monday highlighting some of the best shopping deals. (Subscribe to ABQ on the Cheap – it’s free! – to get our email digest of posts or to read by RSS feed.)

Amazon of course always offers free Super Saver Shipping on orders totaling $25 or more, valid on most items, and their holiday shipping dates show the last day for free Super Saver Shipping is December 18.

I’m always nervous of free shipping so close to Christmas as my Christmas tree has been left with holes under it in the past when the package didn’t roll in till after the Big Day. Now I generally pony up to pay shipping if it’s someone’s main gift, to avoid disappointment. However, the Free Shipping Day folk have said that many merchants will pay for expedited shipping to get it to shoppers by Christmas Eve. How cool is that?

Free Shipping Day is on December 17, 2010, and over 1,400 stores are currently signed up to give customers free shipping on that day. They say delivery will be by Christmas Eve for addresses in the continental United States. Online merchants taking part include Beauty.com, Lands’ End, Macy’s, LL Bean, American Eagle Outfitters, DisneyStore.com, Sephora, Nine West, Sears, Harry & David, the Apple store, and a whole bunch more. I can’t list all 1,400 of them, but you can see the Free Shipping Day list of participants.

Over 60% of the merchants will offer free holiday shipping on all orders. The remainder will have either a minimum order requirement, or offer free shipping on select items only. We won’t know until Friday December 17, when the details of each merchant’s offer will be shown on the Free Shipping Day website. (And we’ll try to update here too with the best of the deals.)

I’m always nervous of free shipping so close to Christmas as my Christmas tree has been left with holes under it in the past when the package didn’t roll in till after the Big Day. Now I generally pony up to pay shipping if it’s someone’s main gift, to avoid disappointment. However, I checked with the Free Shipping Day folk, and they said that many merchants will be paying for expedited shipping to get it to shoppers by Christmas Eve. How cool is that?

We’d always encourage you to shop online from local businesses, for example:

Save 25% on Susan See’s Photo Jewelry and Gifts – see details at our earlier post and order online by December 18.

Save 20% on Albuquerque Hopfest merchandise including jackets, t-shirts, and pint glasses. Order online by noon December 17 for Christmas delivery.

But if you shop at the national retailers anyway, Free Shipping Day is a chance to save a few bucks on gifts, and at this time of year especially it’s worth checking out the ongoing free shipping deals at freeshipping.org.
