We’ve All Been There: You’ve finally found an item you’ve been looking for online, and it’s on sale for $5!
You add it to your cart, go check – and realize you have to pay $8 for shipping. It’s not a good deal anymore.
Here’s another common scenario: You add everything you need to your cart, and the total comes to $25. The site offers free shipping — but only for orders over $50.
Shipping costs often double or triple the price you pay for small orders, eliminating the savings of online shopping. But if you know where to look, you can ship thousands of items for free.
Few people offer overnight shipping at no charge, but many can get the package for you in two to three days, although COVID-19 safety precautions are slowing down deliveries for many retailers. However, if you don’t need it tomorrow, your patience can save you $5 to $8 to $20.
It pays to look for many stores that offer free shipping. We are here to help you get the free shipping you deserve.
