The 2010 event was an unbounded success, with $942 million spent across the Internet in just one day -- an increase of nearly 60% over 2009. This year&rsquo;s Free Shipping Day, scheduled for Dec. 16, will allow shoppers in the U.S. to order from more than 2,000 merchants offering free shipping and delivery by Christmas Eve.<br /><br />The shopping holiday will bring U.K. shoppers the same holiday savings as enjoyed by their U.S. counterparts, in the form of Free Delivery Day.<br /><br />Both events are the creation of Luke Knowles, who also founded FreeShipping.org, FreeDelivery.org and more than a dozen other frugality-related websites. In 2008, Knowles and his start-up staff organized the initial event in just two hectic weeks, after realizing merchants would rejoice in the opportunity to extend holiday deadlines for online shopping.<br /><br />The young entrepreneur understood procrastinating consumers would also appreciate the chance to shop online closer to the holidays without facing down sale-mad crowds. <br /><br />Media response also has been beyond brilliant, with national and regional journalists hopping on the trend-setting story en masse.</p> Free Delivery Day Comes to the U.K. on Dec. 9 http://www.freedelivery.org/blog/free-delivery-day-comes-to-the-uk-on-dec-9/ text/html 2010-02-04T20:46:15+00:00 http://www.freedelivery.org/blog/ http://www.freedelivery.org <p><img src="http://www.freedelivery.org/images/blog/extremely-free-delivery.jpg" alt="Free Delivery in London" width="435" height="295" /><br /><br />Many times when you get home from a long day at work or school you don't feel up to going out and running errands, or cooking a meal.
