lastminuteshoppingThere is still time to do a little online shopping before the holidays. Don’t get me wrong time is running out but if you follow these simple tips, you will be sure to get your gifts by Christmas.

Order as soon as possible. This may sound obvious, but some retailers say the deadline to ship gifts is December 21st. But you can still get it there before Christmas with overnight shipping after the 21st, it will just cost you a little more.

Look for retailers that guarantee it will be there before Christmas. Some retailers are promising it will be there by Christmas or it’s free. So check to find those retailers and finish your shopping. Hint…Sports Authority is offering this!

Sign up for your favorite retailers daily newsletters. This will allow you to find out about deals as soon as possible. And some retailers actually give you coupons in those emails. Either print them out or take your phone shopping so you can use those mobile coupons.

Send online gifts directly to the recipient. Some online retailers will offer you online wrapping and cards. You will be able to send these gifts directly to the person its intended for. This will eliminate the middle man – or you – so the gift gets there on time.

Ship directly to the store. If you ship your gifts to the store, it will get there faster. Picking up a gift at the store will save you time and money on shipping. Retailers usually don’t charge you shipping if it’s going to the store.

Some online retailers offering shipping before Christmas include:
Dick’s Sporting Goods
Sports Authority
