With the nation on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and stores everywhere shuttered, several retailers are offering free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement for a limited time.

So, if you have shopping needs, put the following stores on your list. Just note that shipping times are delayed for many retailers now, so you may have to wait a bit for delivery.

Also, remember you can earn more money back on purchases from dozens of online retailers right now by shopping through Rakuten.


Recreational Equipment Inc., better known as REI, has one of the most generous return windows. Now, it’s also offering free shipping on most orders, but a few exclusions do apply. Check out the website for more details.


Sephora has closed its stores temporarily, but you can get free shipping on any online purchase when you use the code FREESHIP. The offer is good through April 3.

Staples is offering free delivery on every order. However, the retailer asks you to consolidate orders when possible, so that it can “strive to meet the needs of the maximum number of customers.”

If you prefer, curbside pickup is available at most locations.

Note that we cite Staples in “10 Retailers That Give You Rewards on Every Purchase.”


As we reported earlier this month, Walgreens is offering free delivery on any purchase you make at Walgreens.com until further notice.

In addition, both Walgreens and CVS are offering free home delivery of many prescription medications. For more, check out “2 Major Drugstore Chains Waiving Fees for Prescription Delivery.”
