Thanks to a quirk of the calendar, the 2019 holiday shopping season has been unusually short. Black Friday was less than three weeks away, but we’re already about to reach the nationwide holiday shipping deadlines. If you’ve been procrastinating with your holiday shopping, you don’t have many days left to ensure your goods arrive before Christmas. Here are the major dates you’ll need to know if you’re still checking off items on your list:
Orders placed by 4 p.m. CST today will make it to addresses in the lower 48 states before Christmas, but starting tomorrow (12/19), West Coasters will need to opt for three or two-day expedited shipping to get it under the tree in time. If you find yourself in that boat, we’ve got good news. Starting today, we’re offering 50% off of all expedited shipping services, now through Christmas Eve. See the detailed list of shipping deadlines on our Holiday Shipping page.
And, of course, if you’re a local customer, you can take advantage of store pickup to get your gifts as late as December 24th. Still struggling with gifts for the hard-to-buy-for people on your list? Check out our experts’ gift recommendations.
