The thriftiest way to check off all those loved ones on your gift-buying list might be by not spending an arm and a leg on shipping. That’s because lots of retailers are offering free shipping to customers on Free Shipping Day, which this year falls on Wednesday, Dec. 14.
Free shipping — which, let’s face it, is always in style — is especially handy around this time of year when we could all use as much padding in our wallets as possible. Each year, the number of stores that participate in Free Shipping Day increases… and some aren’t limiting their shipping perks to just one day.

Let’s just call out the white elephant in the room: Amazon is the king of shipping, especially for Prime Members. Amazon Prime Members who purchase Amazon Prime items get free shipping. This year, not only can you also choose your delivery date for many items, but spend $25 or more on select items and you are now eligible for free same-day delivery.
