Finance Fox Weekend Recap – No Minimum Monday Edition!

no minimum monday, free shipping, online shopping

I’m unsure of how much online shopping you do, but you should know that this coming Monday – December 10th is No Minimum Monday. This is a one day event where many stores will be offering totally free shipping to Canada with no minimum spend.

No Minimum Monday was started last year and has taken the Canadian online shopping by storm. The promotion inaugurated and is primarily arranged by Canadian shopping community, They did all the hard work and got in touch with numerous Canadian stores to participate in this exciting one day event. So far there are 59 retailers participating and in addition to free shipping offers, certain retailers are even offering additional discounts on top.

So, if you’re looking to wrap up your Christmas shopping or simply find something for yourself, ensure that you take advantage of this special opportunity. More than likely with two weeks to go most of the stores participating will be able to deliver before Christmas, but don’t take my word for it, check with the retailer on the shipping page to ensure.

Visit the official No Minimum Monday page for full details, exclusive coupons and all the details.

  3. Your “No Minimum Monday” is similar to our “Free Shipping Day” here in the states. We have over 1,000 retailers on board that will ship products for free by Christmas Eve. These programs seem to be very popular.
