Tomorrow (December 17) is Free Shipping Day, when retailers offer free shipping and guarantee that your order will arrive before Christmas. As of today (December 16), more than 1500 retailers had signed on to participate at FreeShippingDay.com. UsNews.com has some advice on how to make the most of the big day.
Search the clearance and sale sections of each web site. If you can combine a free shipping offer with a huge markdown, you're really saving money.
Always look for additional discount codes. Some retailers will allow you to use more than one.
Read the fine print. The shipping isn't free on all orders, and some retailers require a minimum purchase.
And as always, if you don't need it, don't buy it. Free shipping on something you don't really need or want is just a waste of money.
But if you can get something at a deep discount, with no shipping fees, and guaranteed to get it to its destination by Christmas, tomorrow could be the 'perfect storm' for many online holiday shoppers.
