Deadline For Standard Delivery by Christmas - Buy.com, Cafe Press, Famous Footwear and The Swiss Colony

Have you got your Christmas shopping done yet? Now is when you need too! If you don't want to pay for expedited shipping but still want to get your Christmas shopping done online, you need to place your orders for both Buy.com, Café Press, Famous Footwear and The Swiss Colony TODAY.

Be aware that these deadlines apply to in-stock items shipping to locations within the 48 contiguous United States. Items shipping from the manufacturer themselves (rather than the online store) will generally take longer to deliver and will follow different deadlines.

Buy.com Christmas Delivery

The deadline to order books/movies/videos/games and get oversized delivery on appliances/TVs for free in time for Christmas has already passed: this happened on Sunday, December 13. If you order today, however (December 15, by 12:00pm EST), you can get free shipping on electronics, computer hardware/software, home & outdoors and toys or ground shipping for sports & bags and get your order still delivered in time for Christmas. You can order anything sitewide at Buy.com through tomorrow, December 16, and still use standard shipping and get your order delivered in time for Christmas. Both budget and standard shipping are not available for Alaskan or Hawaiian orders.

Generally, you will receive free standard shipping on book/music/video/dvd orders totaling $25 or more and sports/games orders totaling $75 or more. If you see a green truck icon next to an item, that item will ship free of charge with no minimum purchase to be met.

Café Press Shipping Costs

Café Press is another online store that you can still get Christmas delivery on your orders from with standard shipping. Café Press lets you print your own (or someone else's uploaded work) design printed on t-shirts, coffee mugs, calendars, bumper stickers, messenger bags, caps, etc.. In fact, this is through a special upgrade offered free of charge today. ("Just choose Standard Shipping, and at no extra cost we'll automatically upgrade you to 2-Day Shipping (when needed) to ensure delivery on or by December 24, 2009. Delivery address must be within the United States and cannot be a PO Box. Promotion ends on December 16, 2009 at 11:59 PM (EST). Cannot be combined with any other CafePress.com coupons or promotions and this offer may change, be modified or canceled at anytime without notice.")

Standard shipping at Café Press costs $7 on the 1st item and adds $0.50 for each additional item in your order.

Famous Footwear Shipping Costs

Get not only delivery by Christmas with your online orders from Famous Footwear that are placed today (11:00am CST) but also get your order shipped free. This applies to ground shipping. Famous Footwear also has a "Buy One, Get One Half Off" sale going on today, so you can add to your value.

Ground shipping at Famous Footwear costs $4.50 for one or two pairs of shoes. When you purchase 3 or more pairs or you are a "Gold REWARDS" member, your standard shipping order has free shipping.

The Swiss Colony Shipping Costs

$15 off $75 or more purchase at The Swiss Colony thru 12/31
Place your Swiss Colony order today, December 15, for regular delivery and still get it delivered in time for Christmas. When shopping online at The Swiss Colony, you'll want to check out their new "Postpaid" gift collection. This group of products already has shipping and postage included in the rate: what you see is what you get on the charge. The Postpaid collection usually features a reduced rate on the shipping charges applied as well. Finally, as if this wasn't enough reason to order Swiss Colony holiday classics today, Swiss Colony is offering an early bird discount to orders placed by today, Wednesday, December 15. Typically, this "early bird" discount is about 10%.

Standard Swiss Colony shipping charges are $3.95 for orders totaling up to $15. After that, your shipping charge will increase by $2 for every additional $10 of product you order until your order total reaches $50. The most you'll pay for shipping at the Swiss Colony will be 11% of your order total, and that's on orders of $285.01 and up.
