Pre-ordered that Playstation 4, but don't want to shell out cash to have it shipped in time for Christmas? Never fear! It seems a ton of retails stores are using free shipping way before the holiday season hits. Even before Halloween, 35 percemt of retailers say they already offer year-round free shipping, up from 23 percent the year before. For the holidays, free speedy shipping will be available.
In a Union Tribune San Diego article by Katherine Poythress, she reported that Paypal's partner brands like Sports Authority, Aeropostale, Levi's and Kenneth Cole are going to be offering free two-day shipping. Walmart is also joining in on the free shiping craze, with their new free ground shipping policy on orders of $50 or more and free "site to store" pick up.
Free shipping is only the start in making the internet the #1 marketplace for any sort of ware, provision, etc. Of course, there's nothing like seeing a product up close, judging its quality for yourself. What are your thoughts on holiday shopping online and free shipping?
