You’re so busy making plans to wake up at the crack of dawn on Black Friday and stay by your computer from dawn until dusk on Cyber Monday that it makes perfect sense why a day like Free Shipping Day would slip right by you. But, as the name makes perfectly clear, neglecting this fabulous shopping opportunity should never, ever happen.

Free Shipping Day will take place this year on Friday, December 15, starting at 12:01 a.m. So, what does this mean? Well, for starters, here’s a day you’re either going to have to stay up all night and dedicate your time to shopping or spend your entire lunch break cruising various sites for cheaper last-minute holiday gifts. Here are a few more crucial details to keep in mind while preparing for Free Shipping Day.

1) You Can Find Out Ahead Of Time Which Brands/Companies Are Participating

Of course, not ever brand and company is getting involved with Free Shipping Day, but those you will learn about on FreeShippingDay.com aren’t too shabby. As of right now, there are more than 450 Free Shipping Day participants, and that number could go up as I write this. Among the retailers you’ll be able to shop you’ll find JC Penny, Talbots, Target, Barnes & Noble, Ralph Lauren, Bloomingdale’s, and even Melissa & Doug — which is perfect if you need to grab a few more toys and kids’ items. Participating vendors run the gamut from technology giants like Sonos to retail giants like Kohl’s to smaller family brands like Shark Tank winner RuggedButts, which designs clothing for young boys.

2) You’ll Receive All Merchandise by Christmas Eve

When you’re shopping for gifts online prior to the holidays, the first question you’ll probably ask is: can I get this shipped, like, yesterday? You have no time to waste, which is why one of the benefits of shopping with participating retailers on Free Shipping Day is getting a guarantee that you’ll receive all items by Christmas Eve, the latest.

3) All Minimum Order Requirements Are Waived On This Day

It doesn’t matter if you only need to order a pair of mittens or if your list includes half the items at Walmart — there is no minimum order requirement to qualify for free shipping on Free Shipping Day.

4) Check FreeShippingDay.com On December 15

So, as soon as you wake up on Dec. 15, your first stop should be FreeShippingDay.com. At 12:01 a.m. EST, the site will post all Free Shipping Day offers from its vendors. You can also browse by category and specific store to find out what they’re offering. And this site is worthy of your love and attention throughout the year, as well. Simply by clicking on a category like Beauty, you’ll discover a slew of money-saving coupons and offers from companies like Lord & Taylor and Bath & Body Works. You can then access a code that can be used to save money on online or in-store purchases or redeem your offer online. There’s no quicker, easier way to save big while scoring items you love.
