When is the Last Day to Ship for Guaranteed Delivery by Christmas?

Posted on December 04, 2013

If you're anything like most Americans, this will sound familiar: Your perfect sister-in-law boasted about being done with her Christmas shopping already during Thanksgiving dinner, but you haven't even started. And because of the late Thanksgiving this year there's one less shopping weekend to get it done between now and Christmas Day.

Before you start hyperventilating, we want you you know that Brad's Deals has you covered. We're seeing some fantastic holiday discounts that will make your Christmas shopping a lot easier to manage - just check out the front page of our website and you'll see extended Cyber Monday sales, tons of free shipping offers, and Brad's Deals exclusives that you won't find anywhere else for all of your favorite merchants, plus a few you might not have heard of before.

To help make sure you've ordered your gifts in time for delivery by Christmas, we've assembled a list of some popular holiday merchants and their shipping deadlines. We'll add to this list as more deadlines are announced.

Some important notes regarding this list:

  • All times shown are EST.
  • There are often many levels of shipping available with different shipping deadlines attached to each type. To keep things simple, we're showing regular standard shipping, as well as your last chance to get something delivered by Christmas Eve, but there may be varying degrees in between. Where available, we've linked directly to each store's holiday shipping schedules where you can find more information.
  • Dates shown are for the contiguous United States only. Alaska, Hawaii and APOs have different deadlines. Click on "More Info" to find details for shipping outside the lower 48.
