Best Buy Shipping Only 99-Cents During Xmas Holiday

Thought it important to post this here since time is of the essence. I will also post this in the "Store Forum" so others can find it.

BestBuy.com offering 99 cent holiday shipping

Atlanta Business Chronicle - by Jennifer Niemela



Best Buy Co. Inc.ís Web site will offer 99-cent standard shipping on most products for the holidays, the company announced Tuesday.

The offer doesnít include products that require a scheduled delivery. Best Buy, (NYSE: BBY), which has 21 metro Atlanta stores, also said that orders placed by 10 a.m. on Dec. 21 will be delivered by Christmas.

Best Buyís online site saw a 24 percent spike in unique visitors on Black Friday. Itís the fifth most-popular online shopping site, according to comScore.

Other retailers have also been cutting shipping fees in whatís become a cutthroat holiday season. Minneapolis-based Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) kicked off a free-shipping promotion on 100,000 items (for shoppers spending $50 or more at its site) in early November, two weeks earlier than usual.

Too bad they didn't have the 99 cent shipping during Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend. I would've ordered a ton through them but chose Amazon instead because of the high shipping at BB.

That's almost as good as the FREE shipping I get for being a Premiere Silver RZ member.

With so many other companies offering the same or better prices than Best Buy AND free shipping, I'm not sure why this is even newsworthy?

I just got a $15 BB Gift Card in the mail today so I'll probably use this shipping at least once

Too bad every time they drop a BR price, AMZ beats it within 3 hours time.

If I would get my BB rewards already, I would be rollin'!

Are they also going to stop charging sales tax during this time as well?

99 cents for their shitty Smartpost or UPS Mail Innovations shipping is still too much.
