Believe it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about your shopping plans. But, Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are several options for getting free shipping that you should be aware of. Some of these are not technically totally “free,” but part of an unlimited free shipping option that you pay for annually. I will discuss a few options below.
It is very common to get free shipping when you spend between $25 and $50 online. This is the usual minimum in Amazon for buying eligible products. But, if you have Amazon prime, you don’t even have to reach the $25 minimum, if you are buying eligible products. Remember, you also get access to streaming television and movies.
Another option for unlimited free shipping is with Shop Runner. Similar to Amazon prime, Shop Runner gives you free shipping from select retailers. And, you can often get access to deals and discounts that are not available otherwise. To sign up for Shop Runner, which is free for American Express credit card holders, but otherwise $79, click here. Among the many major retailers is FTD. In my experience, buying flowers online gets pricey when you add in shipping costs.
What’s great about both Amazon Prime and Shop Runner is not only is there free shipping, but free returns. That’s not always the case with retailers’ free shipping options which can typically be just one-way. Bottom line is that looking for free shipping options is definitely worth your time, and they are not too hard to find.
