Free Shipping Day – Holiday Shoppers Save Money Online

Free Shipping Day is an annual one-day online event that offers free shipping, convenience and great prices for last minute holiday shoppers.

Holiday shoppers in the United States flock to the stores during the annual Black Friday sales extravaganza. Although the yearly event offers phenomenal bargains and doorbuster deals, standing in long lines and finding a parking space at the crack of dawn can be a daunting task.

Online Shopping

Online shopping is a convenient alternative to traditional shopping. With the Internet, purchasing the latest-and-greatest gadgets, electronics, clothing and toys has never been easier. With the simple click of a mouse and a credit card, nearly any type of product can be purchased and delivered straight to your door from the comfort of home.

While shopping online offers many conveniences, shipping and handling charges can often be quite costly. Although the annual Cyber Monday event offers great bargains for online shoppers, those pesky shipping and handling charges are often included.

Free Shipping Day

Whether you are a last-minute holiday shopper or just looking for a great bargain, Free Shipping Day is great way to save money! While some retailers offer free shipping during the holiday season, over one thousand online merchants are participating in the Internet-wide Free Shipping Day event. On December 17th, participating merchants are offering free shipping guaranteed to arrive to your home by Christmas Eve for those residing in the continental United States.

Free Shipping Day History

Free Shipping Day is the brainchild of Luke Knowles, of FreeShipping.org. Knowles created the one-day event several years ago to offer holiday shoppers one last chance to purchase those last-minute Christmas gifts. Over 250 merchants signed up for the first event. The following year, approximately 750 merchants participated in Free Shipping Day, resulting in more than 35,000 online sales.

In just a few years, participation by both merchants and shoppers has been overwhelming. According to the website, more than 1,500 merchants are participating in the Free Shipping Day online event. Over 1,000 participating retailers will offer free shipping on all orders that are in-stock. It is important to note – some merchants may have various restrictions on purchases including minimum purchase requirements.

Free Shipping Day

The Third Annual Free Shipping Day 24-hour event includes both large and small retailers such as Dell, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Sears, Cabelo’s, Victoria’s Secret and JC Penny. In order to receive the free shipping, just visit the Free Shipping Day website after midnight on December 17th. Click on your favorite retailer’s link and follow the specific instructions.

Free Shipping Day offers last-minute holiday shoppers another way to save time and money from the comfort of home.
