Tips for Free Shipping and Last-Minute Gifts.

Walmart says it will participate in national Free Shipping Day by waiving charges for online purchases made Friday, joining other big retailers that hope to generate more sales from last-minute shoppers. The Bentonville, Ark.-based retail giant is one of thousands of retailers to participate in the promotion, which began in 2007 as a coordinated event online to spur more shopping. Time is running out, and if you still have items to check off your list, you may be tempted to spend more or pay a premium shipping fee in order to finish your shopping. Walmart says its internal research shows nearly 80% of shoppers still have holiday shopping left and it has stocked some popular items to get ready for last-minute online shoppers, including Star Wars toys. “Searches for Star Wars toys have increased 200% on Walmart.com and we’ve tripled our assortment from the same period last year,” said Steve Breen, senior vice president of merchandising, Walmart.com, in a statement. Since it is late in the season, certain items may be out of stock, or perhaps you ran out of ideas a week ago and now need a great gift that doesn’t require searching.

Purchase your card through a website like Cardpool and you can get gift cards for up to 35 percent off and even earn money back when you click through a cash back website first. Do the best you can with your shopping, and if something isn’t quite what you wanted just check the store’s return policy and include a gift receipt. After all, the holiday season is a chance to tell the loved ones in your life how much they mean to you, and spending time with them is an excuse to do so! If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t forget that it’s almost time for New Year’s Eve, when you can relax and celebrate the season – and the fact that all of your shopping is over, at least for the moment. And don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to plan a fun celebration on a budget, so if shopping has left you feeling low on cash, you can still enjoy the night.
