Free Shipping Day 2019: What You Need to Know

Free shipping from thousands of online stores in time for the holidays

Free Shipping Day is a one-day promotional event that takes place each year in mid-December. On Free Shipping Day, thousands of online retailers, both large and small, offer free shipping and guarantee your items by Christmas Eve. This year, Free Shipping Day will be Saturday, December 14, 2019.

Free Shipping Day has been going strong since 2008, and it gets bigger every year, generating more sales than even Black Friday. Participating retailers waive minimum ordering requirements on Free Shipping Day, making it a great way to finish last-minute holiday shopping, save money, and steer clear of the crowds.
