Amazon Extends Christmas Shipping Deadlines

Amazon Extends Christmas Shipping Deadlines
Amazon is courting last-minute holiday shoppers by extending its free-shipping deadline by one day to December 19.

Orders over $35 (approximately Rs. 2,100) are eligible for free shipping. Last year's deadline was December 18. The e-commerce company says members of its $99 (approximately Rs. 6,000) annual Prime loyalty program can order by December 22 for two-day shipping.

One-day shipping for items ordered on December 23 costs $2.99 (approximately Rs. 180) and up for Amazon Prime members. And same day delivery is available in 12 cities on items ordered by 10 a.m. local time for $5.99 (approximately Rs. 300) per shipment.

Retailers are hoping to avoid shipping snafus that occurred last year while at the same time getting the last-minute online shoppers dollar.

Wal-Mart said last week the cutoff for orders with standard shipping to reach homes by Christmas is December 19.
