Holiday shipping deadlines and deals

Posted: Updated:

If you haven't finished your holiday shopping yet, don't panic! There's still time to get your gifts shipped straight to your door for free.

I have a new app "The Deals Diva" available for free on iTunes and Android! Download it and it will be even easier to "live life better for less". You can star your favorite deals and find them quickly. I hope you'll enjoy it.

If you want to avoid the crazy stores you have until 10 PM Arizona time to head over here and get your orders of $35 or more shipped for free and guaranteed before Christmas on Amazon.

If you have Amazon Prime, you can get free 2-day shipping in time for Christmas as long as your order before Monday night. If you don't have Prime, click here to get a free 30-day trial. If you don't want the full year of Prime, just be sure to cancel before the 30 days are up to avoid the $99 charge.

Target is offering free shipping on any size order right now and as long as you place your order before Saturday, you'll get in in time to go under the tree.

Kohl's is one of my favorite places to shop and right now if you spend $50 or more you can head over here and get free shipping in time for Christmas as long as you order before 9 PM. If you have a Kohl's charge, use codes DECMVC and PRESENTS30 to get 30% off and free shipping on any size purchase!

Gap and Old Navy will guarantee your orders will arrive before Christmas as long as your order before Saturday. Spend $50 and you'll enjoy the shipping for free. Use code WRAP at Gap to get an extra 40% off your purchase and DASHER at Old Navy to get an extra 25% off your purchase.

Even if you're too late to get your gifts shipped, remember pick up in store options! Walmart, Best Buy, and Target will all let you order what you want and have it waiting for you up front. The time you'll save is worth gold this time of year.

Enjoy the deals and remember that I'm scouring the ads and websites every day so you don't have to. I love finding the very best deals and sharing them via my free daily e-mail (you can sign up here), my Alicia's Deals facebook page, and Twitter.

Deals Diva Alicia Markham has one goal -- to help you live life better for less.

"I only post deals I truly love and would buy or participate in myself," she says.

A stay-at-home mom of two, Markham describes herself as frugal and says she is passionate about saving money. She wants to help you hang on to your hard-earned dollars, too.

"I think it's so important to save without sacrificing your quality of life," she says.

Markham's blog won Phoenix Magazine's Best of the Valley recognition in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 and Arizona Foothill's Magazine's Best of Our Valley recognition.

If there's a deal to be had, Markham will find it and share it with you.
