The retail giant that always has your back has you covered this Christmas season, too. If you want Free Super Saver Shipping by Christmas Eve, make sure to order gifts by Monday or Tuesday (December 17/18). Depending on where you’re located and what the item is, you could easily end up receiving your order this week.

However, Amazon has many items that are eligible for free one-day shipping. The offer is good from December 17-22. Beyond that, expect to pay a high price and run some risk if you want to receive an item in time for Christmas.

Toys R Us

Going into a Toys R Us store can be a headache. However, the retailer makes it easy for parents to do their shopping without ever setting foot in the store. Currently, Toys R Us is offering free shipping on orders over $59. Items are usually shipped in less than 24 hours. All you have to do is look for the FREE Ship-to-Home message.

If you don’t have time to wait on shipping, do your shopping online, and then pick up your goods at the Toys R Us location near you. Many items – assuming they are in stock – can be picked up in three hours or less.
