Free Shipping Index
Walmart and Target battle with free shipping for the holidays
Both Walmart and Target Stores are giving free shipping on tens of thousands of products from computers, TV's, iPads, toys, movies and clothing.
Tight shopping season means customers will look for discounts
Online retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Macy's, Toy R Us, and many others are already offering free shipping deals for the holidays.
Because of the slowdown in the economy, retailers are facing a tougher holiday season. To make up an expected drop in holiday shopping at "brick and mortar" stores, those merchants with web sites are providing more inducements to retain customers and develop more online purchases.
International shipping charges, though, may apply with some merchants. Check delivery rates for items to be shipped outside the country of origin.
Entertainment Magazine will post links to our affiliate advertisers as they are made available. This section links to merchants with free shipping deals and discounts.

How to get free shipping promo codes
Some online merchants required a promotional code for free shipping discounts. Without the special code, shipping will be charged for these merchants.
When a promotional code is required, be sure to copy down the code when you see it. Make note of any expiration dates. Often, the merchant will not show the promo code during checkout. That requires the customer know the promo code prior to checking out.
If the code has any capital letters or lower case letter, copy the format correctly. Some codes may not work if they are not entered as provided. If you have a problem with a code, contact the advertiser directly. See Promotional Codes.
