For those procrastinators out there (I’m raising my hand too), the cutoff times for free standard shipping before Christmas is approaching. Here’s a quick rundown of who’s shipping what and when.
B&H guarantees delivery by Friday, Dec. 23 for UPS ground orders completed by Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 4PM. After that, there are still methods to get it by the weekend. B&H has a handy chart for shipping cutoffs here.
Amazon is similar, but the cutoff for “Free Super Saver Shipping” is Monday, Dec. 19 if you want it in time for Christmas. If you are a Prime member, you can take advantage of free two-day shipping through Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 8PM PST and still get it by Friday. Full details on Amazon’s shipping cutoff dates here.
Adorama’s cutoff for standard UPS shipping is today, Friday, Dec. 16. If you want to order something after today from Adorama, you’ll need to pony up for 3-day, 2-day or faster, or find something that ships with free expedited shipping (currently 125 items available for free 2nd day air). Details on the full shipping scheduld can be found on Adorama’s home page by clicking on the calender icon in the top right corner.
