Some of the biggest stores are giving you until as late as Wednesday to buy and still have your gifts show up on time.

I was both surprised and pleased to learn that one of my favorite retailers, Target, is giving shoppers until Wednesday afternoon to order online and still receive their purchases before Christmas — for free.

Target is not the only retailer offering such promotions this year, though. We’ve identified five national retailers that are offering noteworthy free last-minute-shipping promotions.

Just note that these offers apply generally. Certain items may be excluded and some destinations, like those outside the lower 48 states, may no longer be eligible for delivery by Christmas. So pay attention to shipping costs during checkout.

1. Amazon

Order by 11:59 p.m. PT Monday to receive your purchases before Christmas Day with standard delivery. Amazon says it will “be delivering right up until midnight on Dec. 24.”

If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, however, standard delivery is only free if you spend more than $49.

If you are a Prime member, you can order by 11:59 PT Tuesday to receive your purchases before Christmas with two-day shipping, which is free and requires no minimum purchase for Prime members. Just note that Amazon says this option is for “qualifying orders to most parts of the country,” so check each product’s detail page for holiday availability.

2. Best Buy

Order by 10:30 a.m. CT Wednesday to receive eligible items by Christmas. The descriptions on the product pages for eligible items say “Free 2-Day Shipping.”

As a bonus, some items eligible for free two-day shipping are also part of the Wrap It Up Sale that’s going on now through Tuesday.

3. Costco

These select items come with two-day delivery. Order by 11:59 p.m. PT Wednesday to receive them by Christmas.

4. CVS

Order by 11:59 p.m. ET Monday to receive your purchase by Christmas.

As a bonus, CVS is waiving its minimum purchase requirement and offering 30 percent off regular prices Monday. That’s the same deal the retailer offered on Black Friday.

5. Target

Order by 4 p.m. ET Wednesday to receive your purchase by Dec. 23. Choose “holiday shipping” at checkout, and note that Target says this offer applies to “most items.”

As a bonus, select fragrances, beauty gift sets and candy are 25 percent off until 11:59 p.m. PT Monday.

For more sales going on all week — like $70 off Apple watches — check out Target’s current weekly ad.
