Free Shipping Day

By December 11, 2012

Follow me on:

This year "Free Shipping Day" is going to be this Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. This is one of the last days many online stores will guarantee that packages will be delivered by Christmas and they promote the day by offering free shipping.

Free Shipping Reminders

"Free Shipping" slogans are often used to entice customers to buy, but remember to read the terms. Many free shipping offers are only offered if shoppers buy a certain amount of merchandise. The amount set is almost always before sales tax. Also, keep a close eye on the shopping cart for "handling" charges. Unfortunately some online stores will drop the shipping rate, but inflate the handling charge.

The event was originally organized by Luke Knowles, founder of FreeShippingDay.com in an effort to stimulate shoppers to shop online in the final weeks before Christmas. The event has now expanded and has been added to the other major holiday online shopping events; Cyber Monday and Green Monday. Many online stores and coupon sites will be promoting free shipping deals later this week.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for
being off-topic but I had to ask!
