Holiday Shipping Cutoff Dates

2014 Free Shipping Deadlines

One of the most important things to remember about holiday shopping is that there is a cut off date for shipping your purchases in time for gift-giving. Below, we have compiled the Christmas posting dates for some of our most popular merchants, so that you can make sure your items ship in time to arrive for the holidays.

You may recall from last year that poor weather, a short holiday shopping season, and other factors lead to many items not being delivered on time. Be advised that as the holidays approach, shipping costs will go up, so our best advice is to get as much shopping done as you can by the end of this week.

We have also included the requirements to get free shipping for certain stores, but the longer you wait, the less available free shipping will be. This Thursday, December 18, is Free Shipping Day and will be your last chance to get any kind of discount on shipping for the holidays. As always, our Hot Deals Page is constantly updated with gift ideas to help you get all the names on your list crossed off.
