FREE 2-Day Shipping on $50+ at Adorama [Exclusions Apply!]

Adorama is running a free 2-day shipping promotion on orders of $49.99+ (excluding shipping and taxes) for the 48 contiguous US states. PO Boxes are not eligible (because they are inside Post Offices and delivering to them can be a pain). Details of the promotion at the Adorama Shipping page.

For your convenience I’m cut-n-pasting the relevant paragraph for the promotion:

“Items marked with “FREE 2-Day Shipping” or “2-Day Shipping – FREE on Orders over $49.99″ are eligible. Cart totals of $49.99 excluding shipping and tax will be qualified with eligible items. Shipping within the contiguous 48 U.S. states. PO box addresses as well as shipping to Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico are not included in this offer. Used items and items in the Home Electronics and Musical Instruments product categories are not eligible. To ensure the safety and compliance of our shipping procedures, we have a rule in place that certain products are not eligible for our 2-day shipping service. This includes products that are deemed hazardous, those that are drop-shipped, or those that cannot be shipped by plane”

Last Day for Free 2-Day Shipping for Prime Members (for Christmas 2015 delivery)

If you are planning a Christmas 2015 purchase, Tuesday is the last day for Prime members to get their items delivered for FREE with Prime’s Free 2-Day shipping. A small number of items are eligible for free 1-day Prime delivery (they have to be available at a nearby warehouse). See the Amazon Holiday Shipping Deadlines for more details.

If you live in an area with Prime NOW, you can have items delivered on Christmas Eve even. Keep in mind however that Prime NOW has much smaller subset of items than Amazon’s main website. This is because regional warehouses don’t have everything, and also because PrimeNOW is near-instant delivery, you can only order items that currently available and ready to be delivered from a nearby Amazon facility. If you are not familiar with that, we have a long post of what to expect. If you never placed a Prime Now order before, coupon 10PRIMENOW gets you $10 off your first order.

If all else fails, there’s Gift Cards. Many of the physical Amazon gift cards (plastic or greeting card style) are eligible for free 1-day shipping and may come with a gift card box. The emailable gift cards arrive within minutes (or even faster) most of the time.

PS: the free 1-day shipping promotion for all apparently just expired…
