With the holiday’s fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about saving with online shopping.  One big way to save is to figure out how to reduce shipping costs!  There is a great company called ShopRunner.com, that offers FREE 2 day shipping at over 70 different online retailers.

It seems like a dream world to imagine all your favorite stores got together and offered you unlimited FREE 2 day shipping-with no minimum purchase requirement.  It’s real though!   ShopRunner also compiles special offers, member-only deals, coupons and more!

Even more cool… they offer FREE return shipping too!!

You can try Shoprunner out for 30 days for free, and then if you like it pay $6.58 a month.  If you think about it, this cost is worth it even if you buy shipping for about 2 items a month.  On top of the shipping, you receive tons of exclusive deals.  With Christmas approaching, this seems like one of the smartest ways to buy gifts for your loved ones.

On a personal note, we have had a membership for a while now and it has helped me snag deals that I never would have gotten locally on Toys R Us and Babies R Us, like $5 Huggies diapers and more!

One deal I found:

Get 25% off clearance kids shoes at Olly.com.  They have a ton of shoes marked down to $9.99, so after the exclusive code you get shoes for $7.49 with FREE shipping!!

Note: You will need to enter your credit card information to get the trial membership, but you can cancel at any time.  If you want to keep the membership, don’t do anything and it will just charge you monthly or anually.

The Giveaway:

ShopRunner is giving away a $50 gift card to three Southern Savers readers.  You get to pick what gift card you want from any Shoprunner merchant!

To Enter:

Leave a comment below telling me which Shoprunner participating store you would want the $50 gift card to!

Winners will be notified Friday, 10/14 by 5 pm.
