Free Shipping Day is Friday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Friday is your shot at both free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve, but not every deal on Free Shipping Day is worth your time.

Nearly 1,200 retailers will offer both free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Dec. 24.

Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us and are among the retailers offering special deals for Free Shipping Day, too.

Target's offering $10 off every $50 spent, and $25 off if you spend $100. Look for free gift cards with many purchases at Best Buy, too. Toys R Us is offering deep discounts on Hasbro toys, as well as Star Wars and Lego toys.

But be careful, some of the stores participating in Free Shipping Day still have minimum purchases to get it. The Simply Money point here: It makes no sense to spend $20 more than you planned to save $5 on shipping.

Remember, most stores now offer "ship to store" as a free option. All you have to do is pick that item up, often the same day you order it.
