Zappos offers free overnight shipping for life, but today only

In a sign that pressure is mounting for retailers to offer free shipping, online shoe seller Zappos is offering free overnight shipping for your lifetime when you register to become a VIP today only.

Standard shipping is free both ways on Zappos. Sign up to become a Zappos VIP here.

Joining is free and requires you to share an e-mail address, name, and create a password. The offer expires at midnight PST Dec. 1.

Here's a pair of Seychelles gray shorty boots that I'd like to own. Zappos has them for $114 and with my new VIP status I could try them on tomorrow.

Bargain secret: Zappos sells its overstock at 6pm.com.
