It’s hard to deny that Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping has changed the way we think about buying goods online, making it easier to order everything from toilet paper to last-minute birthday gifts and holiday gifts without having to wait weeks for everything to show up.
Well, with the holidays approaching, Target has decided to get in on the game. This year, they’ll be offering free two-day shipping on all online orders with no minimum purchase, and you won’t even have to pay a one-time fee to take advantage of it like you do with Amazon Prime.
That’s not all they’re doing to make holiday shopping as easy as possible. They’ve also partnered with Shipt to give customers in hundreds of markets access to same-day delivery. And they now have a drive-up service that allows you to order online then arrive at the store and have an associate bring your order out to you. They also have in-store pickup and have a service called Target Restock, which gives you next-day delivery on household staples for just $2.99 (free for Target RedCard holders).
Like we needed any incentive to buy more stuff from Target, right?
The one catch? This isn’t a permanent new feature for Target — yet, anyway. The free shipping offer starts on Nov. 1 and goes through Dec. 22, giving you more than enough time to get all your holiday shopping done. You’ll actually be able to relax instead of anxiously wondering when that last present is finally going to arrive.
