Paying for Shipping from Online Vendors
Sending gifts far and wide is pricey—but it doesn't have to be, especially now that December 17th is National Free Shipping Day. On that day, 1,127 stores (including Best Buy, Express, Talbots, Kohl's, Home Depot, REI, Levi's, Barnes and Noble and JCPenney) will give all customers free shipping on their online purchases, with delivery by December 24th. If that sounds enticing, but you'd like to buy something now because you're worried it will be out of stock by the 17th, Jeanette Pavini, a contributor to Coupons.com, suggests you search online for free shipping promotions for any site you're ordering from, because you'll likely find a code. In fact, National Free Shipping Day can help you out with this too—scroll to the bottom of their homepage for links to free shipping coupons for everything from Forever21 to Barneys.
