Free Shipping Day is finally here, and for shoppers who still need to do their holiday shopping, it represents the cutoff for free shipping at most online retailers. This year there are already more than 1,500 retailers participating in the shopping event with free shipping and guaranteed delivery by December 24.

Luke Knowles, founder of Free Shipping Day, described Free Shipping Day as a, "Day for procrastinators," in a phone interview, adding that it is perfect for shoppers who didn't want to deal with the hassles of Black Friday and Cyber Monday but still want free shipping and other last minute holiday shopping deals.
