As the December holiday shopping season wraps up this week, FatWallet provides shoppers with smart resources to assure the most savings for last-minute gifts with on-time delivery.

In the final 2011 holiday shopping week, FatWallet features four savvy tips to help online shoppers save money and beat shipping deadlines. Holiday shoppers still have time to use these worry-free resources to find last-chance deals, add cash back rewards and secure on-time delivery, avoiding expensive rush shipping costs.

1. Assure gifts ship on time. FatWallet's Holiday Shipping Deadline Guide features more than 150 stores’ “last day to ship” schedules for standard and expedited shipping dates, including details regarding USPS, UPS and FedEx ground and air options. (average final express shipping deadline is Dec. 22 or earlier for most stores)

2. Still save on shipping costs. Find free and discounted shipping offers and coupon codes from popular stores using Free Shipping Deals (even after Free Shipping Friday). Select stores ( for example) are offering to waive the difference on expedited shipping costs to assure on-time deliveries, only charging the customer standard charges. Product details may vary from store to store, so shoppers should read shipping details for each specific store offer.

3. Hundreds of remaining deals and coupons. FatWallet expert staff and savvy forums community vet out the final holiday bargains with up-to-the-minute links to details for stacking savings and shipping options, conveniently located in Today’s Best Deals and the Hot Deals forum.
