Final Countdown: Best Buy Starts Free Two-Day Shipping for Last-Minute Shoppers

  • No minimum purchase required; customers get free two-day shipping starting tomorrow on the best deals and brands of the season

 

MINNEAPOLIS – Wednesday, Dec. 14 – With only 11 days left until Christmas, Best Buy is doing its part to take the stress out of finishing those shopping lists – especially for those who don’t want to leave the house and brave the freezing weather.

Starting tomorrow and running through 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Dec. 21, customers shopping on BestBuy.com will automatically have their shipping upgraded to two-day shipping on almost everything[1] – just in time to get gifts under the tree.

No minimum purchase is required for the free upgrade. It’s simply another way Best Buy is making the holidays easy for our customers. And while the offer is good on laptops and tablets and that sweet pair of wireless headphones that someone wants, it’s also good on stocking stuffers like movies, music and games.

Shoppers need to place their orders by 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Dec. 21, in order to get their tech by Christmas.

Get it yourself

Customers who want their gifts even faster can order on BestBuy.com and pick up from their local Best Buy store same-day, usually within a couple of hours. In-store pickup will be available through Saturday, Dec. 24 on orders placed by 4 p.m. local time, as most stores will close at 6 p.m. local time. In-store pickup is great for people traveling over the holidays too – just buy online at home and choose to pick up items at a store near the destination.
