Ready, Set, Shop! Free Shipping Day 2011 is Friday, December 16th
Free Shipping Day
is Friday December 16th of this year. Thousands of the biggest online retailers are all getting together and offering free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve on that day.
Started in 2008 by the online forces behind FreeShipping.org
, Free Shipping Day was created to boost confidence among online shoppers that presents would get to them before Christmas. Before Free Shipping Day was created, online holiday sales would peak way early around Cyber Monday even. Now in its fourth year, Free Shipping Day is the third biggest online shopping day of the year with over 2,000 merchants participating.
Don't worry, all the big ones are in it--as well as all your favorites. The complete list on FreeShippingDay.com

Most sites are offering free shipping with no minimum, but it's best to check the home page of the site to be certain. One thing I am certain of is that Free Shipping Day is your best chance to get the best deal no matter what site you shop at. Typically the free shipping is automatic and usually can be stacked with any other current deals for the retailer (Which is why I linked you to the retailer's deal page on Savings.com and not their home page. Do you really need a link to the home page of Walmart.com?
Will you be taking advantage of free shipping this Friday?
