Guess what?!? You still have some time to shop online for some of the best prices and deals! In fact, you have over 4 days right now to order in time for Christmas!
Just like we have shared the last few years, Amazon stands several feet ahead of the other e-commerce players during the Christmas season. Call me what you will, but I can’t rave enough about Amazon.com’s shipping policies when it comes to Christmas and when coupled with the amazing sales – they truly separate the men from the boys when it comes to e-commerce!
I mean really, how many other companies do you see offering same-day shipping on Christmas Eve (in select cities) with a fee of only $3.99 per item?! I’ll save you a bit of work. The answer is none. It almost makes me want to sell our home, move to one of those cities (many to choose from!) just to order on the 24th of December to see the item delivered to my doorstep. Laugh if you will (Cassie did) but that’s seriously how awesome I think their shipping policies are. Besides, I am a guy so last minute shopping is my middle name.
So right now its time to get over your excitement for Amazon’s uber-awesome shipping policies and prepare yourself for some last minute shopping. Where’s all those people mocking the guy who waits until Christmas Eve to shop now??
We are going to share the deals in 3 parts:
- A Special category this year where you can buy items and receive an automatic 1-day free shipping! This means you can order through Monday, December 23rd on these items! This appears to be for EVERYONE (not just Prime Members) that orders a gift or few from these categories HERE.
- We will share a number of special sales and deals in several categories. The above shipping schedule applies to Prime members or any of you that are not Prime members, but order $35 or more, then you qualify.
- We will finally share our $2, $5, $10 and $20 gift lists – pay attention to shipping options, many will be for Prime or Super Saver shipping to fit in the above shipping schedule, but some may be too late for Christmas, however, you should find dozens of gift ideas in each category still!
In addition to the above shipping cut-off schedule for the whole site, there is a special category of deals that will give you an automatic free 1-day shipping – for the items listed in these categories on the Amazon site HERE. There are nearly 52,000 items in this special category for 1-day shipping, and covers nearly every gift category.
Now here’s the details and links for the #2:
