Free Zappos VIP membership bannerGet a free Zappos VIP membership, which comes with free one-day shipping, when you share your name, e-mail and create a password for the site. Offer ends Oct. 8, 2010. Upgrading to one-day business shipping usually costs $25 per order. The VIP membership is valid as long as you keep the account open, I believe.

Zappos offers non-VIPs (i.e. everyone) free shipping and free returns, costs that are factored into the price of their shoes. The site also sells clothes and accessories.

Caveats: limit one invite per e-mail address. You must be 13 or older to sign up. Free overnight shipping is not available for shipments to Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Territories, P.O. Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses. Orders placed before 1 p.m. PST/4 p.m. EST on a business day will be delivered the next business day. For example, orders placed before 1 p.m. PST on a Monday will be arrive on Tuesday. But orders placed after 1 p.m. PST on a Monday will get there Wednesday. Orders placed on Friday after 1 p.m. PST Saturday or Sunday will be delivered on Tuesday.

Thanks, Ann!
