If there is one thing you don't want to pay for this holiday season, it's shipping. Three of the hottest holiday retailers -- Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy -- are enticing savvy shoppers with free shipping in a bid to get the biggest slice of holiday spending.

Walmart offered free shipping on 60,000 items, then Amazon said it would match any free shipping offer, and now Best Buy has thrown into the ring free shipping on hundreds of thousands of items.
