Shopping-related “holidays” are getting a bit out of hand, don’t you think? We can forgive Black Friday because it’s been a tradition since the 1930s, but the debut of Cyber Monday in 2005 made my eyes roll, and then came Super Saturday, which is the last Saturday before Christmas.
Now we have Free Shipping Day, which is a one-day event where hundreds of major retailers have agreed to provide free shipping on online orders without any minimum purchase amounts. (For example, Amazon requires you to spend at least $35 to qualify for free shipping .)
This year, Free Shipping Day falls on Friday, December 16. There are over 650 participating retailers as of this writing, and that number is only going to go up. All of these retailers promise to deliver all orders by Christmas Eve.
Want to see the full list? Just visit FreeShippingDay.com where you can filter by one of many categories. You can also sign up for the newsletter, which will remind you as Free Shipping Day approaches so you don’t forget.
Note that these retailers aren’t promising free two-day shipping like Amazon Prime ! That’s a whole different beast altogether. If you’re more interested in that, check out these retailers with free two-day shipping .
