Free Shipping Day 2009

Have you heard about Free Shipping Day? Surprisingly, us at didn't hear about it UNTIL today (and we're shopping online EVERY day professionally!!). This one really took us by surprise, but its still going on, so we've got time to cover it!

What IS Free Shipping Day?

These free shipping offers are available to orders shipping to the continental United States only and are valid today, December 17, through 11:59pm EST. The offer applies to in-stock merchandise only and at current count, there are 744 merchants participating in this event. Some retailers require a minimum spend to redeem free shipping, others are offering free shipping across the board. The first ever 'free shipping day' was held on December 18, 2008. The idea was generated during a brainstorm session between the owner of and his wife.

What's so great about Free Shipping Day? has collaborated with nearly 1000 online retailers to get them to all offer free shipping promotions on the same day: a date also being offering to get your gifts delivered on time for Christmas Eve arrival through these merchants. Thats two big questions out of the equation of online shopping in December.

This is's program. How does Centsible fit in? 12/17-12/22
So why are we here at Centsible writing about how great someone else's program is? Because we are quite frankly impressed. We here at Centsible try to make online shopping as easy for you as possible every day. We incorporate many different facets to the shopping experience: sales tax policies, free shipping thresholds, shipping costs, delivery areas for each retailer, length of time for delivery, delivery options, coupon codes, sales coverages, free shipping promos AND product samplings by department. The fact that has nearly leveled the playing field for one day is fantastic. We want to share ANY good shopping advice with our followers too: whether or not its given by us.

So, the Centsible thing to do today is celebrate free shipping by going out and shopping online!
