Still putting off buying Christmas gifts? Today’s the day to stop procrastinating. (via It’s Your Money)
That’s because it’s Free Shipping Day, the annual event where more than 1,500 online retailers are offering free shipping on all items, with guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. And these stores aren’t small potatoes — big-name brands like Sears, Dell, Barnes & Noble and L.L. Bean are participating. The promotion started in 2008 in an attempt to help merchants by extending the holiday season, and help last-minute shoppers get great deals.
If you can’t find the perfect gift online today, you probably won’t find it at all. Free Shipping Day founder Luke Knowles told TIME that massive retailers and specialty stores alike are jumping to give you a discount.
