Free Shipping Day

Free Shipping Day is one of the many days dedicated to shopping that takes place around the holiday season, and was created for those who have procrastinated in their online gift buying. As Christmas approaches, shoppers begin to get concerned that if they buy something online it won't arrive in time, and by mid-December, less people buy online. Over 1,000 participating retailers relieve this late shopping concern, by providing free shipping, and by guaranteeing that packages will arrive by Christmas Eve. Started in 2008 by Luke and Maisie Knowles of Kinoli Inc., the first year had 250 participating companies, with some big names such as Target and JCPenney. Starting in 2017, a coupon portion has been included on the official website, with free shipping codes and coupons.

How to Observe Free Shipping Day
