The final week for free shipping is upon us..

Share this content:
Today is officially Brown Monday, or the Monday in December before the final free shipping deadlines to get gifts in time for Christmas. While I am sure there will be some free shipping offers next week, this is really the last week to get this across the board.

According to Shop.org, many of the busiest online shopping days of the year are expected to occur this week. According to Shop.org's eHoliday Study, conducted by BIGresearch, 62.3% of retailers' shipping deadlines for Christmas delivery will fall on or before December 18, with the 34% of holiday shipping deadlines occurring on Dec. 18 itself.

I have seen the offers continue to come it, be it in my Amazon shopping cart, where a few items have dropped in price since over the weekend, or in my inbox, where retailers have sent another round of holiday e-mails pushing for me to shop today.
