As web-based purchases become commonplace, online stores are constantly offering perks to entice you to stay home and shop from the comfort of your living room sofa. For example, Amazon, the behemoth of online shopping, recently extended its free shipping offer until December 22 for any order that totals more than $25. Another perk offered by Amazon this season is its guarantee that orders placed through December 17 will arrive at to their destinations by December 24.
These are great perks for seniors still looking for gifts this holiday season. Just about any gift you can think of can be delivered – on time – directly to the recipient, free of charge.
Amazon isn’t the only company offering some outstanding perks. Walmart.com, Amazon’s biggest competitor, is offering free shipping on select items through December 20, with no minimum purchase requirement.
Seniors can expect these online deals to get better with time as more shoppers rely on the internet for holiday shopping.
