Best Buy is getting ready to go head-to-head with rival Amazon by offering free next-day shipping, but only over the holidays…
Brick-and-mortar retailer Best Buy is offering free next-day deliveries over the coming holidays. The expedited shipping option will be available to almost every shopper and include nearly anything (with the exceptions of heavy items, like big screen televisions and refrigerators).
Best Buy Now Offering Free Next-Day Delivery on Holidays
Best Buy’s new free next-day delivery could really make it more of a genuine threat to rival Amazon because the online site requires a paid Prime membership for customers to enjoy free deliveries.
What’s more, if recipients are outside of the free next-day shipping zone, Best Buy will still honor free standard shipping. While the latter takes more time, it does cut down on cost.
Another retailer, Walmart, is also experimenting with free next-day delivery. Although Amazon has done a lot to improve its shipping prowess, competitors are doing the same, too.
