If you're sitting at your desk at work, take note of where the boss is. Nowhere to be seen? Then it's time to finish up your Christmas shopping!

Today is Free Shipping Day, a one-day-only event where 1,723 retailers team up to offer free shipping – and delivery by Christmas Eve.

This year’s event began at midnight and ends tonight at midnight.

Last year, according to FreeShippingDay.com, more than 750 merchants participated; more than 650,000 merchant offers were clicked on; and more than 35,000 sales took place through FreeShippingDay.com. With more than double the number of merchants participating this year, those numbers are highly likely to be eclipsed.

Some stores have minimums to get free shipping, most offer shipping totally free. The site has coupon codes you can use to get free shipping on participating retailers websites.

The idea was the brainchild of Free Shipping Day founder Luke Knowles back in 2007. From the site:

Knowles – who created the popular shopping website FreeShipping.org with his wife, Maisie, in 2007 – hatched the idea for Free Shipping Day just two weeks before the event in December 2008. In an abrupt brainstorm, he thought that retailers would relish the opportunity to extend the online holiday shopping season, which typically peaks in early December because consumers are concerned about their gift orders arriving to their intended destination in time for Christmas.

Among the merchants who have signed up for this year’s Free Shipping Day are Dell, Nine West, Macy’s, Cabela’s, Overstock.com, Neiman Marcus, Disney Store, Crate & Barrel, DSW and Sierra Trading Post.

“Free Shipping Day encourages people to continue buying items online later into the month of December”, Knowles said. “It is a money-saving measure for consumers and a way to extend the online holiday shopping season for retailers, so everyone benefits.”

So, what are you waiting for? Oh, that’s right – you’re waiting for the boss to go to lunch.
