The Best Last-Minute Online Holiday Sales With Free Curbside Pick-Up
If you don’t want to chance shipping delays, these major retailers are offering tons of sales on gift items with easy curbside pick-up.
The holidays are already stressful enough when there’s not a global pandemic, but this year it’s extra challenging with families unable to travel or visit in person and a deluge of extra gifts and packages in the mail. Most retailers have already hit their guaranteed shipping window for delivery by Christmas, and USPS just issued a disclaimer that all packages will be delayed. If you’re down to the wire or haven’t started shopping yet, consider curbside pick-up. I recently tried this at World Market and it was amazing. I ordered my items online, got a text alert when my order was ready and, when I arrived, they just dropped the bag in my backseat. I had a mask, the employee had a mask and there was no contact or exchanging credit cards since I already paid online.
If that scenario sounds like a blissful, stress-free dream, get ready to knock out your entire list just like that. We’ve rounded up the best retailers with free curbside pick-up — some even same-day! Even better: All of these retailers are currently hosting mega markdowns on holiday gifts and seasonal items, from big-ticket appliances to stocking stuffers. Shop our top picks below, and save big while you tackle the rest of your shopping list.
