Best Buy Offers Free Shipping For All Orders During The Entire Holiday Season

Sometimes it’s just easier to bypass the hustle and bustle of the local mall and do all your holiday shopping from the comfort of your own home. One big problem with that: the sometimes costly shipping fees. Best Buy is hoping free shipping turns into more online sales this year. 

The retailer announced Thursday that it will offer free shipping on all items for the duration of the holiday season, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The deal, which runs from Sunday until Jan. 2, makes Best Buy the first major retailer to offer free shipping for the holidays.

Best Buy has previously offered free shipping on purchases of over $35.

In addition to its shipping deal, Best Buy also announced on Thursday that it would offer a feature in its mobile app that allows shoppers to have a live chat with employees.

It will also offer free Geek Squad setup on many of the company’s top tech items like iPads, Bose headphone and TVs.
