Still trying to finish your holiday shopping?
Are you an online holiday shopper? If so you are running out of time to complete that shopping! Many online retailers experience a rush of sales from those last minute shoppers about the third week before Christmas. This year the madness began on December 10th and many shops are reaching their holiday shipping deadlines at the end of this week. Many shipping deadlines approach this week and into early next week so if you want your online orders to arrive before Christmas you need to get busy!
Amazon.com is a great holiday gift retailer I have used this year. Amazon is still offering their two day shipping Today, December 20th 2007. Buy.com, a popular online electronics retailer will be offering their free shipping specials till Sunday December 16th 2007 and lastly The United States postal service has also posted their 2007 holiday shipping guidelines for your convenience. Shipping deadlines are definitely fast approaching so you need to get your holiday online orders placed soon!
Do not despair if you miss the shipping deadline for your favorite retailer there are several solutions! You could consider wrapping up a creative “IOU” or a “your gift is on the way” certificate for your gift recipient that way your package can arrive after Christmas and still please the receiver. Another great idea is giving a gift card or a gift certificate! Many retailers are offering creative gift card solutions that allow your recipient to shop for what they really want as a gift from you. This makes many recipients elated because then they can get what they really want!
