That’s right, like a gift from the shopping gods, national free shipping day is exactly what you think it is–the best day ever. On Monday thousands (yes, thousands!) of national retailers like Kohl’s, Land’s End and Best Buy have banded together to give shoppers free shipping (with delivery by December 23).
December 17 is no randomly-selected day, either. According to the U.S. Postal Service, that day is expected to the busiest for post offices across the country. So what should your strategy be for making both the most and least of Monday? Spend this weekend stocking up your online shopping carts for last minute gifts (not sure if your store is participating? check out the full list here), and don’t click “purchase” until it’s officially free shipping day.
And just FYI, if you’re still planning on braving the post office, the last day the post office ensures pre-Christmas arrival for first class mail is Thursday December 20.
How much do you plan to buy on free shipping day?
