Friday Is Free Shipping Day

Friday is the third annual "Free Shipping Day"



    Friday is the third annual "Free Shipping Day," and the largest one yet.

    If you're hunting for gifts online on Friday, you're in luck. Over a thousand retailers are offering free shipping on orders placed on Friday.

    Traditionally, Free Shipping Friday usually falls about a week before December 25th since it's the last day that most couriers can guarantee your gifts will make it to their destination for Christmas Eve.

    The list of retailers is a who's who of top merchants including Toys R Us,, Macy's, and Dell.

    One tip: make sure you read the fine print.  About forty percent of the participating stores require a minimum purchase.
