Many major retailers are offering free or reduced shipping during coronavirus-related store closures. Whether their physical locations are shuttered or not, the act of lessening the minimum spend for free shipping helps encourage social distancing and protect elderly and vulnerable community members.
If you’re stuck at home and online shopping (and that’s a lot of us right now), you should know about these retailers currently offering free shipping.
Keep in mind: As always, things can change quickly.
PRO TIP: Check to see how you can support your favorite local boutiques, as well, as some are offering customers free shipping or in-store pickup. Shopping local in times like these is a win-win.
