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?

Amazon Free Two-Day Shipping for Parents

June 7, 2011 by  
Filed under Kids, Shopping

Comments Off

The free Amazon Mom membership program is not just for moms – anyone caring for a baby or child can join – and benefits include free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping, 30% off diapers, and other discounts.

By registering for the free Amazon Mom program, you get free two-day shipping for three months at Amazon with no minimum order required – and not just on child products but on millions of products in all categories.  If you shop in the Baby Store, for every $25 you spend they’ll add another month of free two-day shipping to your account, up to a year’s worth.

Other benefits include 30% off diapers and wipes, and although it’s not required to share information about your child or children, they offer member discounts and promotions if you choose to provide details such as gender and birthday, or your due date if you’re pregnant (congratulations!).

The free membership is open to anyone caring for children – moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, etc – with no restrictions on the child’s age, and the free shipping is valid on products other than child care. Existing Amazon Prime members can also get a refund on their paid subscription (usually $79 a year) if they trade it in for the freebie! See all the Amazon Mom Frequently Asked Questions for the full skinny.

We’d always encourage you to support local Albuquerque stores, but if you buy online anyway, this is a great way to save on shipping costs AND get other perks!

* * *

Everyone else can still try Amazon Prime with a free one month trial. Be sure to cancel your subscription before the free trial ends or select “do not upgrade” once you’re registered for the freebie, if you don’t want your credit card to be automatically charged for the $79 annual subscription at the end of the trial period.

You don’t need to cancel the Amazon Mom deal – once you’ve used up your free shipping time, the Amazon Prime membership just stops – although the other discounts and benefits continue. It’s a totally free deal.

We got a great tip from Evelyn at The Big Apple on the Cheap to save time, packing, and shopping when you’re traveling:  Have Amazon deliver a box of diapers to the hotel where you’re staying on vacation, or to a family member’s house on your next visit!

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.)

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.

Can’t wait till the Friday food post to share these deals available for only one day/a short time, or likely to sell out soon.

ABQ on the Cheap readers get free shipping (usually 99 cents) by using the exclusive promo code abqfreeshipping through December 10, on discounted (mainly half price) CityDeals dining certificates for:

Check vendor terms in the details to make sure it’s a good deal for you, and enter the code abqfreeshipping (all lower case/one word) in the space provided at checkout to get the free shipping through December 3
The code can also be used on the Regal Cinemas VIP Super Saver Movie Tickets Deal for 2 tickets for $17 (saving $4), valid at cinemas including UA Cottonwood Mall Stadium 16, Four Hills 10, High Ridge 8, and Winrock VI. (Quantities are limited).

Whole Foods Lobster and Chicken Sale on Wednesday December 1 only, with wild caught Maine Lobster Tail 4-5 oz for $7.99 (usually $12.99) and Split Chicken Breast $2.99 a pound (usually $4.99). No web link for this, we got word via a Whole Food Market email, it’s at both ABQ stores. I wanted to call this a great deal for your Surf ‘n’ Turf, but it’s chicken, not steak, so no Turf. I thought maybe instead it’s Crawl ‘n’ Coop, but clever Trevor suggested Nip ‘n’ Cluck instead. Good huh?

Mimi’s Cafe Free Lunch or Dinner Entree on December 1 & 2 only, with the coupon and the purchase of a second lunch or dinner entree and a starter or small plate. Value up to $10, only one coupon for table, and it’s not valid on the fixed price menu.

Dinner & Wine for 2 for $60 at Prairie Star Restaurant on Wednesday evenings: Starter, entree, and dessert for two, PLUS a bottle of wine for $60 on Wednesdays only, at the Prairie Star Restaurant at the Santa Ana Golf Club. No coupon needed, but it’s probably wise to reserve a table. Menus may change but looks like tonight’s is a meat-eater’s paradise including House Sausage & Potato Hash with lamb, antelope, venison, bison, and cherry sausage, applewood ham & pepper-potato hash, and collard greens.

20% off Scarpas Torta Di Mele dessert or any espresso drinks like caramel latte at the Academy location, when you mention the offer at Scarpas Brick Oven Pizza website.

Carl’s Junior Free Small Drink with the purchase of a 3 piece chicken tenders, using the coupon valid to December 3, 2010.
