Let The Shopping Begin!
Stores are competing extra hard for your holiday shopping this year. Lots of stores are trying extra hard in getting you into their store, or their website! Wal-Mart shoppers get free shipping on its Web site, with no minimum purchase (the offer covers 60,000 gift items). Wal-Mart isn’t alone in using the free shipping weapon. Target and J. C. Penney have also introduced their most aggressive free-shipping programs ever. Meanwhile, Sears, Toys R Us, Williams-Sonoma and others are matching or trying to match Amazon.com’s unlimited two-day free shipping for an annual fee.
