Are you a procrastinator? Fretting about not yet having any presents to put under the tree? Then, boy, do we have good news for you. Friday, December 18th, 2015 is this year’s annual Free Shipping Day. On Free Shipping Day, a myriad of retailers agree to provide a $0 charge for shipping and handling on all orders, with no qualifying minimum dollar amount on your order. That means everything you order from these merchants, from a $2 toy to a $300 TV, will ship for free.
The best part? Delivery by Christmas Eve is guaranteed. So if you’ve been procrastinating your purchase, it may be advantageous to hold off just a few days more; you’ll save on shipping and still get your stuff in time to wrap and present on the big day.
Here are a few of our favorite participating retailers, along with the gifts they specialize in:
Have someone that loves the outdoors? Cabela’s has you covered. Their main focus is on hunting and fishing, but they also have a ton of gear for camping and boating. If someone on your list loves this lifestyle, you’ll be able to find them that perfect something. Don’t forget to check out their Bargain Cave!
With the best coverage network in the nation, you may want to head to Verizon if you’re looking for free shipping on a new phone or tablet. (Or the accompanying gear.)
If you’re looking at a wider variety of cell service providers, Samsung itself is also participating in free shipping day for their phones, accessories, and all the other cool gear on their site.
You know, the place where you can buy everything. For super cheap.
The store where we start drooling in the home decor section.
Have a tech-y need? You’ll be able to fill it at GeekBuying. From smartphones to GPS compasses, and everything in between, they’ve got it.
JBL produces a specific line of electronics: auditory. They’ve got everything from your auto needs to poolside, waterproof speakers, along with some fab headphones.
For the fashionista who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality. On top of free shipping day, they also have a promo code out right now for 25% off your order and free two-day shipping. One of the few instances where waiting until Friday may not be to your benefit.
Another great place to shop for those that love designer, Neiman Marcus goes beyond lambskin. This upscale department store also has a 10% off promo code, along with another for free upgraded shipping sitewide.
Their holiday bouquets are gorgeous, but they do so much more than just flowers. Think chocolate, gourmet gift baskets, and personalized keepsake gifts.
Perfect for the single who just got their first pad, or that someone who is constantly redecorating with each changing season. Art.com has canvas and framed prints for just about every taste, though our favorites are the magnetic frames and prints; they can literally be switched out on a whim.
Shopping for someone who would appreciate green beauty items…that actually work? Check out Origins.
Adorable, trendy clothes for the younger crowd, for any situation. Whether it’s work or play, Forever 21 has it.
If you’re shopping for a computer, going refurbished can save you a ton of money. Free shipping on top of that savings? Sold.
If you’re willing to spend a little more for a brand that’s arguably a bit higher on the quality scale, Lenovo is also participating in free shipping day. While they have a wide array of computers to choose from, they also sell servers, and storage and networking products.
Into the IoT (internet of things?) Misfit is worth checking out. Their primary products track fitness, activity, sleep and even swimming stats.
Remember, don’t get to shopping just yet; you have an excuse to procrastinate! Unless you can find a deal that makes free shipping obsolete, waiting until Friday is a justifiable reason to prolong whipping out your card.
