Save on shipping costs this holiday season

WASHINGTON – This holiday season, shoppers looking to avoid busy stores and long checkout lines will trade the traditional mall rush for their Web browsers. WTOP has some tips on how to save money with free shipping for online shoppers.

Janet Bodnar, editor at Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, says to be on the lookout for emails from retailers offering free shipping codes or promotions for free shipping on orders of a certain amount. Some stores, such as Target and Gap, even offer free shipping to customers with store credit cards.

Another resource Bodnar suggests is, an online website that lists coupon codes for more than 1,000 merchants. According to Bodnar, the site guarantees delivery by Dec. 24 on all items ordered before Dec. 17.
