Christmas Holiday 2018 Shipping Deadlines

Posted: Leave a Comment

Last Update: 10/29/2018

Back in the day, when all gifts had to be bought in stores, retailers would helpfully remind us how many “shopping days” there were left before Christmas - not counting the Sundays, and often Saturdays, when stores were closed. Now, in the age of the Internet, every day can be a shopping day, and store hours are any time we’re awake.

However, that doesn’t mean you can just put off all your shopping until the last minute. Because the snag with doing your Christmas shopping online is, you have to factor in delivery time to be sure your gift will arrive before Santa takes off for the year. So instead of counting shopping days until Christmas, you have to count shipping days.

Fortunately, BuyVia has taken the work out of counting for you. We’ve checked websites for all the major stores to see how long their expected delivery times are for regular shipping, express shipping, and free shipping. If a store doesn’t have this information on the Web, or the information is conflicting, we’ve called customer service to get the scoop or extrapolated from the previous year - so you can just relax and enjoy your eggnog.
