Mad Dash: Amazon Extends Holiday Shipping, Falls Short of Wal-Mart
Amazon.com added a two-day extension to its free holiday shipping window today. For all of you procrastinators, you have until 11:59 pm PST on Dec. 19 to receive free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Dec. 24. That still doesn’t top Wal-Mart’s offer. It’s offering free shipping until 11:30 pm PST on Dec. 20, or nearly 24 hours longer. Wal-Mart estimates it will save customers $25 million in shipping fees this season.
