Gifts are being bought and packages have begun showing up on doorsteps. So how much will it cost to get those presents to Aunt Mable’s house all the way across the country? Hopefully nothing!
Since online shopping has taken off in the last few years — about 9 out of 10 retailers are promoting free shipping offers, according to the National Retail Federation. And the NRF also says that nearly 57 percent of retailers upped their free shipping budgets this year.
Stores know there is a huge demand for free shipping over the holidays, especially when people are already spending so much to buy the perfect holiday gift.
Enter ‘Free Shipping Day.’
In its fourth year, Free Shipping Day (taking place on Dec. 16 this year) is a great time to save even more around the holidays.
Big retailers like Best Buy, Lands’ End, JCPenney, Cabela’s, Kohl’s, Macy’s, DSW, REI, and Barnes & Noble are just a few of the store participating.

Not only is it a good way to save, but most promise delivery by Christmas Eve if you order by that day.
