free shipping dayYou’re probably familiar with the two big seasonal shopping holidays—Black Friday and Cyber Monday—but have you heard of Free Shipping Day?

It’s a one-day-only online shopping event every mid-December in which participating merchants ship their goods free of charge—with guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. If you’re a procrastinator and find yourself left with a long shopping list just a week before Christmas, wrap up your online purchases on December 18th to help spare you the sting of rush shipping.

The stores that elect to participate—which currently include Harry & David, Zappos.com, PetSmart, eBags, Samsung and over 750 more—have pledged to ship any size order fee-free and some will be offering additional discounts to boot.

For more information, or to request via Twitter that your favorite store participate, check out FreeShippingDay.com. The full list of retailers and deals will be available there at 12:01 a.m. EST on December 18.
