Free shipping is one of our favorite discounts year-round but especially for the holiday season. After all, who wants to stack up all the discounts just to shell out some extra dough for shipping? Seems unreasonable but we all have experienced that screeching halt to your shopping spree at checkout if shipping isn’t free. The good news is that most major retailers will likely return with free shipping no minimum offers over the holidays. In addition to holiday promotions, mark your calendars for Free Shipping Day which will fall on Sunday, December 18 this year. Merchants will be offering either free shipping no minimum or lower free shipping threshold around December 18. You’ll also want to keep tabs on some holiday shipping deadlines mid-December to make sure all your orders ships in time for Christmas.
About: Free Shipping Day is a nationwide phenomenon happening during mid-December, specifically December 18th, 2016. All purchases from tons of stores will be shipped free, no minimum on this day and delivered by Christmas Eve. Stay tuned at BlackFriday.fm for more updates!
We’re getting our holiday free shipping list ready early this year and below, you’ll find tons of free shipping information to help you save at checkout.
