ShopRunner: Unlimited Free 2-Day Shipping

Join today!

If you've been doing a lot of online shopping recently, you have surely seen the little green running guy. He looks like he's late for a meeting or something. Or, maybe “she” is running to get that next sale. Or maybe they are running to tell others they are getting Free 2-Day shipping?

ShopRunner is a service that offers unlimited FREE 2-Day Shipping with no minimum order size from several online stores. Not only is your shipping free, but returns ship for free too. If you have had to return anything, you know it's expensive, not to mention a pain!

How ShopRunner Works

When you are on a retailer site that offers the ShopRunner 2-Day Shipping, you will see a button like this one:

You saw it on the Sonicare Toothbrush deal I shared last week. You can use coupon codes still and still shop through the various cash back sites. When you go to checkout, you select the ShopRunner shipment and receive your discount. Your shipping discount will then show up in your ShopRunner account as money saved on shipping (so you see the potential benefit to validate if the price is worth it).

ShopRunner Plans and Pricing

The reason I have hesitated in sharing this is that this service isn't free. You can try ShopRunner for 30 days with the Free Trial and receive Free unlimited 2-day Shipping. A credit card is required for the Free Trial, which I didn't like but I understand why they are requiring it (but I still don't like it).

You can select a monthly membership at $8.95 per month. Or, select the annual membership and pay it all up front for $79, or $6.58 per month. Obviously the annual membership rate is a better overall value.  After the 30-day trial, your credit card is charged for the membership rate you select, unless you cancel. Make sure you put a reminder on your calendar a few days before the trial is up so you can determine if it's worth it for you.

Is ShopRunner Worth It?

If you do a lot of online shopping (like me), you know that Shipping isn't cheap. I paid $8 for shipping on Black Friday! Of all shopping days, Black Friday shipping is usually free but this year we saw minimum purchase requirements even. BLAH! So, that would have paid for a month of ShopRunner membership benefits and I could have had Free 2-Day Shipping.

They are growing the stores that they offer the discounted shipping. Check out the list of participating stores on ShopRunner to see if you would have potential savings. They currently partner with Dominos Pizza and we pay a lot of delivery fees…just sayin'. They are going to add Ulta and soon. I like me some high-end cosmetics…just sayin' again :)

As I see various ShopRunner free shipping opportunities, I will begin to mention them in the deals. If you think it's worth it, sign up for the Free 30-Day Trial. Now is a great time to take advantage of it with the extra online shopping.
