Homedepot.com is offering free shipping on more than 60,000 items ordered by Dec. 16. The big orange’s extended Cyber Monday sale has no minimum purchase to qualify for free shipping and includes free delivery and haul-away on most major appliances. Home Depot even includes a link to its new how-to community, with shipping deadlines to help customers get their purchases before Christmas.
Lowes.com is offering free shipping on orders $49 and more, up to 150 pounds (or 70 pounds for post-office box orders). Free shipping is limited to the contiguous United States, and must be $49 before taxes or fees are applied. The company is also advertising its “Buy online, pick up in stores” method, allowing customers to take advantage of online prices and sales with the convenience of in-store pickup. Customers who choose this method can pick their orders up within 20 minutes of ordering.
Amazon.com is hyping its typical Super Saving Shipping on orders over $25, but it’s taking it a step further, by offering a holiday shipping guide to help customers plan their holiday orders. For instance, customers who wish to take advantage of the Super Saving Shipping need to order by Dec. 17 to receive their orders in time for Christmas. Customers can use standard shipping up to Dec. 20, and can use the two-day shipping method up to 7 p.m. on Dec. 22. The site offers shipping methods for Dec. 23 and 24 as well, and even offers a solution for Christmas day shopping -- an e-mail or printable Amazon gift card.
