Free 2-day shipping at Target — throughout the holidays
Holiday shopping just got a whole lot better: Target recently announced that it “will offer Free 2-Day Shipping to all guests on hundreds of thousands of items, with no minimum purchase and no membership required, beginning Nov. 1.” Just think of all the money you’ll save sending the perfect gifts — including many Target exclusives — to friends and family!
