Many retailers are offering free shipping with guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve on Free Shipping Day, December 14.

If you’re a last-minute shopper or just remembered someone you left off of your list, the realization is setting in that you’re going to pay more in expedited shipping charges than the actual gift itself. Well, don’t fret, has you covered.

For 24 hours on Saturday, December 14, more than 1,000 retailers on are offering free shipping, with no minimum purchase, and guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. Yes, it’s a thing … and once you know it, you’ll never forget it. Free shipping, no minimums, guaranteed delivery.

But wait, there’s more! 😉There are also coupons and discount codes available on the website that can be used in conjunction with the free shipping on that day.

How It Works:

In order to make sure you get the free shipping on December 14, check the particular retailer's listing on the website after 12 a.m. that day, as each free shipping offer might work differently (automatically applied on the store's site, or require a code to be entered, etc.).

Worry not! The site is super-intuitive and easy to use, with an alphabetical list of stores (big names like Walmart, Best Buy, etc.) or a list of categories, which range from accessories to travel.

Then once you're clear on what you'll need to do (if anything) to get free shipping on your order, proceed to the retailer's actual website and shop online like normal. 

While you're browsing through the Free Shipping Day site itself, you can learn some pretty fascinating information. They've included little factoids on almost every page of their website. And being a “fun fact” kind of girl, I was pretty excited to learn—while browsing through the travel deals—that Shakespeare was the first person to use the term “luggage.” “...It means something you “lug” around!” Huh, who knew?

But we can’t get too distracted on Saturday, December 14, as we only have 24 hours for: Free Shipping, No Minimum, and Guaranteed Delivery by Christmas Eve.

Let us know in the comments how well you did on Free Shipping Day. Hey, I just learned, the top-selling item at Walmart in 2014 was bananas.

We at OCN wish you and your family a very happy holiday season!
