More than 1,000 retailers are offering free shipping on Friday, December 18.

The participating retailers say there's no minimum purchase and they promise your items will arrive by Christmas Eve.

The participating retailers in 2015 include Target, Walmart, Land's End, Sierra Trading Post, Cabela's, Harry & David, 1-800-Baskets, Lane Bryant, Lord & Taylor, JCPenney, 1-800-Flowers, Forever 21, eBags, Under Armour, Chico's and TJ Maxx.

This is a great way to send gifts to family and friends without paying to ship your gifts or standing in line at the post office. It's also a great way to get items you want and/or need without paying shipping fees.

If you google free shipping, you'll find lots of websites with information, but I recommend using the official website Some retailers are offering deals, in addition to free shipping, like 10 percent off or free gift wrap, if you use that website.

Check out more deals on our ShopSmart page. You can "search" for particular items you're interested in or just browse by category. If you have the 7NEWS app, you can also build a "shopping list" that you can take with you to the store.
