DENVER (CBS4) – Heads up to last minute shoppers — this Friday, Dec. 16, is “Free Shipping Day” online, which means thousands of etailers will offer free shipping on all orders, or with a minimum purchase.

To see who’s participating, check out: http://www.FreeShippingDay.com

A Fort Collins couple actually came up with the idea. Last year’s Free Shipping Day became the largest volume online shopping day in history. Some tips from the organizers — make sure you understand any minimum purchase requirement or exclusions, and if time is of the essence, ship directly to your recipient.

Happy holidays – and bargain hunting!

Please pass along your thrifty tips in the comments section! I’d love to hear from you.

    Pretty cool that this idea came from a Colorado based business. I really like that they let small independent stores participate right along with big chains like Walmart. About to finish my Christmas shopping right now!

    One tip is to check the “Type of Offer” pull-down menu on FreeShippingDay.com. I found they had a listing just for “Free Shipping on All Orders,” so I didn’t have to wade through minimums and restrictions. Thanks for the heads up!
