What is Free Shipping Day?
Free Shipping Day is a one-day event held annually in mid-December. On that holiday, consumers can shop from both large and small online merchants that offer free shipping with guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve! Imagine that! This service comes in the knick of time for gift giving! This year, the holiday falls on Friday, December 15.
This holiday started in 2008. Luke and Maisie Knowles, the founders of Coupon Sherpa and FreeShipping.org, created Free Shipping Day. They did this in the hopes of extending the online shopping season. The Knowles believed that shoppers avoid ordering online when Christmas is approaching because they don’t think they would receive their orders in time for the holidays.
After the Knowles made the event known, several hundred online merchants signed up to join the event. More than 750 retailers participated, having more than 350,000 sales taking place through www.FreeShippingDay.com. The merchant participation has been increasing every subsequent year since the event started. In order to participate, merchants have to guarantee that they waive all minimum order requirements and guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve. Because of the popularity of the event, the creators branched out the event into Canada and the United Kingdom.
So, on December 15, check out the website to see the deals that you can get from countless merchants! You can count on the delivery making it to your doorstep on Christmas Eve! The best thing about it is that you don’t even have to think about shipping fees!
So go on and get shopping!
