NEW YORK (WKZO) -- Good news for online holiday shoppers: Monday is Free Shipping Day.
The sales promotion idea was introduced four years ago with a website dedicated to letting people know where they could find free shipping deals. This year, more than 12 hundred merchants and online retailers have signed up to take part in the event.
Free Shipping Day is the brainchild of Luke Knowles who says the goal this time around is to at least tie the online sales numbers seen on Cyber Monday. Last year's Free Shipping Day event generated over a billion dollars in online sales.
