Free Shipping Day 2016

Just a reminder for those who are sending gifts for the holidays Free Shipping Day is scheduled this year for Dec. 16 and more than 1000 merchants registered to participate. That means if you ship on December 16th it will be free and arrive by December 24th.  Procrastinators rejoice!

Before the U.S. recession hit in 2007, the phrase “Free Shipping Day” didn’t exist in the national vocabulary. After a few short years, Free Shipping Day now stands side-by-side with Cyber Monday and has left Black Friday in the dust. Not bad for an event that was built in under two weeks and, fittingly, gives last minute shoppers hope for yuletide savings. There are also coupons for each vendor.

Free Shipping Day® is a coordinated one-day, online-shopping event in which thousands of merchants participate and offer free shipping with delivery by Christmas Eve. Now in its 9th year, Free Shipping Day comes on Friday, December 16th, near the tail-end of the shopping season.

Keep an eye out to make sure that your favorite brand is included.
