I am a big time online shopper, especially at Christmas. Because when the parking lot is crowded and the check-out lines are long, I run the other direction! But I don’t like to pay for shipping when I could go to the store if I wanted to avoid a $20 charge. Do you feel the same way I do? I hope so because I’ve compiled my TOP 12 sites offering FREE SHIPPING, tell it to your neighbor! I’m also including their order-by cutoff date for December 24th delivery. The list, in my professional opinion, starts with the best offer and then the next best and so on.

Order from the “Arrives in time!” sales (see above picture) for Christmas delivery.
FYI – All of these sites have their own exclusions and restrictions. For example, furniture is not included in free shipping and some jewelry styles have a longer personalizing lead time. Also, the “order by” dates are based on standard shipping to be delivered on December 24th, Christmas Eve. And always read the fine print when checking out to make sure your Christmas dreams can come true, I don’t know about Hawaii and Alaska!
