Reminds me of that Vandals song…
I can be a bit of a procrastinator. Last year I was ordering the last of the Christmas gifts at the last minute when I found a reason to rejoice: I just happened to stumble upon free shipping day. (I usually buy presents throughout the year, but there’s always those last couple that seem to slip through the cracks.)
This year I’m seriously thinking about procrastinating on purpose. If I wait until December 17 to place my order, I can get free shipping on any order to a crazy amount of retailers. Seriously, everywhere I’ve ever thought to shop participates. AND you’ll get all your stuff by Christmas Eve. That’s almost better than the time frame they guarantee I get when I actually PAY outrageous yet standard S&H fees.
There’s actually an entire website dedicated to this phenomenon. It lists a bunch of retailers that participate and has an e-mail list that you can sign up for. (You know, just in case your procrastinating self forgets that the big day is December 17. Because then you’re screwed.)
Will you be procrastinating to save money on shipping?
