Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
Dealhack.com, a blog that tracks deals on the hottest tech and consumer products, released its 2008 round-up of Shipping Deadlines for 157 Top Online Retailers, plus the US Postal Service. The list includes detailed shipping deadline information, including:
+ Standard shipping deadline
+ Express/2-Day shipping deadline
+ Overnight shipping deadline
+ APO/FPO delivery information
+ Gift card detail (shipping deadline and whether the merchant has an email gift certificate option)
+ Customer service telephone number
"This year, Christmas falls on a Thursday, giving online shoppers a nice opportunity to place orders for delivery on one of the weekdays leading up to the holiday," said Michael Bell, CEO. "You could conceivably shop as late as Tuesday December 23 at a number of stores; however, in most cases, that would require paying exorbitant overnight shipping charges. Frankly, right now, there is still plenty of time to make your purchase via standard shipping."
Standard shipping deadlines for some stores extend as late as Friday December 19, but most cluster around Monday December 15 through Thursday December 18.
Bell noted, "A quick scan of the list can help shoppers lock in on the key deadlines for the one or two stores they are most likely to use."
Merchants featured on the list include Amazon, Buy.com, Newegg, Apple, Dell, Target, Cooking.com, Wine.com, Gap, Talbots.com, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Zappos, and many more.
Bell added, "Online shoppers are used to a quick turn-around on their purchases; they're comfortable waiting to the last minute. Our intent in publishing this list is to give shoppers the information they need to shop the way they want, while making sure they are able to get their gifts out on time."
