KUSA - On Wednesday, retailers participating in Free Shipping Day will waive the shipping fee for all orders placed that day. There is no minimum order amount to earn free shipping, and delivery by Dec. 24 is guaranteed.
Wednesday will mark the five-year anniversary of the first Free Shipping Day, founded by entrepreneur Luke Knowles in 2007. According to the official site, Knowles started the day as a way for shoppers to get free shipping and a guaranteed delivery date without having to order weeks before the holidays.
This may be the last time shoppers will have such a guarantee with free shipping, and it's a great way to buy gifts online and receive them in time for Christmas without paying high prices for express or overnight shipping.
More than 800 merchants are participating in Free Shipping Day 2013. The full list on online retailers can be found at FreeShippingDay.com.
