Supporting National Free Shipping Day will provide customers with one more incentive to shop with us. We chose to align ourselves with FreeShippingDay.com to spread our marketing message and reach a broader audience.
Reston, VA (Vocus) December 17, 2008
Wirefly.com, the online leader in one-stop comparison shopping for cell phones, wireless service plans and wireless accessories, today announced that in support of National Free Shipping Day, it will offer free shipping on any orders placed on Dec. 18. Products will be delivered by Christmas Eve for all orders which are approved by 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 22.
National Free Shipping Day, a marketing concept developed by Luke Knowles, Founder of FreeShipping.org, marks the last day that online purchases at many participating merchants are guaranteed to be delivered by Dec. 24.
"In 2007, online shopping peaked on Dec. 10, fifteen days before Christmas," Knowles said. "I believe consumers were deterred from ordering products online any later because of the concern that their gifts wouldn't reach the intended recipients in time. They were also put off by the exorbitant shipping costs associated with expediting an order. National Free Shipping Day will encourage people to continue buying items online later into the month of December."
"Making online shopping more convenient and enticing to our customers is always a top priority at Wirefly.com," said Andy Zeinfeld, CEO. "Supporting National Free Shipping Day will provide customers with one more incentive to shop with us. We chose to align ourselves with FreeShippingDay.com to spread our marketing message and reach a broader audience."
Zeinfeld continued, "Consumers are voting with their wallets and are choosing to shop online because of the convenience and value. At Wirefly.com, our prices are significantly lower and the selection much greater than the bricks-and-mortar stores. As a result, they are willing to forego the instant gratification associated with walking into a retail store and wait one or two days to receive their new cell phone or wireless accessories. Our free shipping promotion and guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve just add to the already tremendous benefits of shopping with us."
