Apple ran a deal last month that those with a minimum purchase order will qualify for free standard shipping when placed through the U.S. online Apple store. The company has now extended that special, but now with faster 2-3 business day free shipping. With this new shipping promotion from Apple, it will provide a faster delivery service and piece of mind to those wanting to complete their shopping before Christmas day.
Apple posted a list of shipping deadlines for customers who want last minute gifts with guaranteed delivery by the December 24th. All purchases made before Dec. 19th will automatically qualify for the free shipping (2 to 3 days) promotion with an expected pre-Christmas delivery. Some selected apple products—Mac, iPhone, iPods, and others—have different deadlines. For an engraved iPod or iPad, customers will have until the 19th. For those wanting to buy an iPhone 4S as a Christmas holiday gift, it’s unfortunately a little too late; December 5th was the last day to place those orders.
Apple also gives customers the option for next-day delivery at an additional charge on almost all of their products in their online store.
