The Best Websites with Free Shipping

Updated on June 4, 2014

Websites with Free Shipping Today

You won't see me hitchhiking to Walmart! I don't have a car, and I live in the suburbs. Though I love my family and friends who give me rides to the store occasionally, I hate feeling dependent on others. I also hate spending money on shipping! I did some research and found the best websites with free shipping.

Walmart.com

Do you want a break from buying heavy or bulky items at the store and carrying them from the car? Walmart.com is my favorite free shipping website. There is a $50 minimum purchase for free shipping, so I wait until I need items that add up to $50. I regularly purchase my toilet paper, cat litter, cat food, laundry detergent, and personal care items through Walmart.com. I never pay for shipping. Once, part of my order arrived the very next day. The rest of the order arrived two days later. Why pay for shipping? Most of the time, my order takes about a week to be delivered. I am fine with waiting a week to save some money.

I have an uncle who is 70 years old. He has struggled for years with back pain. I told him about Walmart.com. I thought it might help him to order heavy items, so he could just carry them inside from his front porch after they are delivered. The prices are the same as in the store, so why not?

Special Walmart.com Tip: Well, I wanted to mention where I get my free Walmart gift cards for Walmart.com, but apparently Hubpages has lumped that reward program in with those paid to read email, click ads, and other pointless programs that we are prohibited from mentioning in our hubs.

Free Shipping is a free pass to avoid crowded shopping malls!

Amazon.com

Amazon is where I turn to when I need a new journal, book, or DVD that isn't available on Walmart.com. I also have bought hard-to-find grocery items and one of my favorite possessions, my Kindle Fire. I have saved so much money with my Kindle Fire by reading free classic novels rather than buying them. Amazon has one of the best free shipping policies I've seen. It only requires a purchase of $35 to qualify for free shipping though not all items qualify for free shipping. The selection is outstanding. If you need anything that you haven't been able to find elsewhere, I suggest you check Amazon.

Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas is one of my favorite online retailers. I enjoy loose tea, not only for the health benefits associated with green and black tea but also for the taste. I like to buy several kinds at once. Then, I create my own tea blends at home by adding two or three types of tea to my tea infuser for steeping. Now, Adagio Teas allows people to create their own blends. Customers can choose the teas and proportions for the blends, name the tea blend, and even upload a photo or image for the artwork on the package. Customers can share these blends with friends and family or keep them private. Shipping is free for orders of $49 or more which works out well for me since I buy several teas at a time, then I don't buy any more for months.

CafePress.com

CafePress.com allows customers to upload their own photos or artwork and order t-shirts and gift merchandise. It's a fun website. If you sign up for their newsletter, they send you many email alerts with sales such as half off mugs or t-shirts. I'm going to be drawing my roommate's dog and making her a mug with the help of this website. I have uploaded some of my art and Christian designs. The free shipping requires a special code. The CafePress free shipping code is SHIP6ZG. Add that code as a coupon code for your order.

If you are an artist, CafePress gives you a chance to make money with your art. You can create a drawing or design, upload it, set your commission for the item, then share it over social media or advertise. That way, you can make money on the same artwork many times over as opposed to selling the actual drawing.

I hope you found my list of the best websites with free shipping helpful. If you have transportation issues, agoraphobia, or just hate shopping, I encourage you to give the websites with free shipping a try.
