Free Shipping Day 2016 List & Christmas Delivery Deadlines

Free Shipping Day 2016 List & Christmas Delivery Deadlines
What is the Last Day to Order Gifts in Time for Christmas?
The last day to order gifts for most merchants is "Free Shipping Day" which is the last day that retailers offer free standard shipping, however Christmas shipping deadlines can vary. Merchants such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and others may require a minimum purchase to qualify for the free shipping promotion. Many merchants offer free shipping promotions throughout December to avoid the last minute shopping rush.

When is Free Shipping Day 2016?
Free Shipping Day 2016 will be on Sunday, December 16th, 2016.

What is Free Shipping Day?
Started in 2008, Free Shipping Day is celebrated in mid December about a week after Green Monday with many retailers like Amazon or Toys R Us offering free shipping in time for Christmas. It offers shoppers a chance to get any last minute shopping done from the comfort of their own homes!

This shopping holiday has grown to include merchants of all sizes including Amazon and more and is a great way for anyone to finish up their holiday shopping without the hassles of going into traditionally very busy malls and stores across the country. Some merchants have even started offering week-long free shipping offers and extended offers for those of us who are especially prone to procrastination.

    Most of the listed stores "free" shipping offers are available year round with minimum purchase. "Much ado about nothing".

    @Urbstfrend While that is true that some policies are unchanged, some people may not know about shipping deadlines and free shipping policies. It helps to be able to compare this information and make an informed decision in order to get free shipping AND receive items by December 24. Otherwise people may be stuck with costly 1 or 2-day shipping.

    Also, some merchants have lowered the threshold, such as Kohl's who is offering free shipping on orders of $50 or more (was $75). Thanks for sharing!

    Could you guys please tell retailers not to have the best sales/free shipping all on the same day? It's hard to do a lot of different stores in the same day. they should just drop the Black Friday and cyber Monday and just go with black week and cyber week... it would give us less pressure , More ability to plan our shopping and less slow websites etc. And they would get much more business!

    Not really "free shipping" if there's a minimum purchase required.

    can't wait for more deals. they should get better as free shipping day approaches. but some stores actually have earlier "last day to ship" days than others so be careful
