Free Shipping Day is just what it sounds like: It’s a day when hundreds of retailers offer free shipping with every purchase—with delivery guaranteed by Christmas. And Free Shipping Day is today, Friday, December 15.
According to FreeShippingDay.com, nearly 1,000 retailers are participating in the big event by waiving the usual minimum-purchase requirements for free delivery. What’s more, many retailers are offering special discounts on top of the promise of free shipping with all orders.
So what are the best Free Shipping Day deals? In all honesty, the promise of free shipping alone isn’t all that special given today’s retail environment. Target and Best Buy have been offering free shipping on all orders throughout the holiday season, including today and well into next week. For example, you can place an order anytime now through Wednesday, December 20, at Target.com and get free delivery guaranteed for arrival by December 23. Similarly, Nike is listed as a participant in Free Shipping Day, but shoppers get free shipping guaranteed for delivery by Christmas on all orders placed now and all the way through 2 p.m. PT on Wednesday, December 20.
Below, we’ve rounded up the major retailers that are giving free shipping on all orders as a special promotion today, and they’re sweetening the pot with additional discounts on par with what we’ve seen on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
