I still have a long list of Christmas gifts to get so I was a little stunned to realize this morning that Christmas is NEXT WEEK! When am I going to find the time? Am I supposed to take the day off work? Fight the crowds this weekend? (I already made better plans.) Nope.
Enter Free Shipping Day.
I will log on while the kids are watching Family Guy — I hate that show — and take care of it all from my home office â€“ or while tucked into bed.
[Insert sigh of relaxation here.]
Last year was a banner year for Free Shipping Day, according to the announcement I got. And this year will be even bigger with 37 percent of consumers planning to participate. But I donâ€™t care if itâ€™s crowded. Parking will be easy. (My driveway.) And Iâ€™ll be comfy and warm. (See above)
Lots of merchants are participating this year (more than 1500). All you do is log on at Freeshippingday.com and click on a merchant you want to shop with. Some merchants are already displaying logos but all offers will be announced at the start of day (12am EST) Friday.
