Okay, here’s an inside tip for all my QR shopping buddies: If you’re shopping online today, you get ready to check out, and you get sticker-shock on the shipping costs, hold off a day: tomorrow is “Green Monday,” a major online retail event where many, MANY stores will be offering free shipping in some way, shape, or form.
It may not be free shipping on ANY order — some stores will have a minimum purchase requirement — but the idea is to get you guys shopping with enough time to get your order here before Christmas with standard, non-expedited shipping.
If you’re shopping somewhere that has a free shipping offer going on now anyway, or if you don’t want to wait, by all means, shop away! But if you wanted to place a smaller order, or shop somewhere that doesn’t have a free shipping offer right now, it may pay to hold off a day.
I don’t have a full list of participating stores… but I’ll see if I can at least get some more details together and will post again later.
Get ready for Green Monday!
