First there was Black Friday, then came Cyber Monday. This week marks another retail-friendly "holiday" meant to drive up sales: Free Shipping Day.
The day, being held for the first time this year, Free Shipping Day is the brainchild of Luke Knowles, who created the deals Web site FreeShipping.org. For many shoppers, the day represents their last chance prior to the holidays for customers to receive free shipping on their preferred items.
Retailers in the CE sphere participating include Circuit City, Target, Dell, Brookstone and the Apple Store.
