Free shipping: It's often the make-or-break incentive for online shoppers, and the difference between getting Aunt Beanie that DVD she wants or sending her something you're regifting from last year.
Last year many people took advantage of a day of free shipping provided by online retailers in conjunction with a Web site called FreeShippingDay.com. And this year, the promotion returns on Dec. 17.
So all of you holiday shopping procrastinators out there take note: Any orders made that day with retailers participating in Free Shipping Day are guaranteed to arrive by Dec. 24, so gifts can be placed under the tree with care.
More than 250 retailers participated last year -- including Bloomingdale’s, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret -- and the site expects more than 500 retailers to take part this year. So far there are 215 stores signed up to participate in Free Shipping Day. Check out the list of stores by clicking here.
