Trust me, you don’t want to get your Christmas shopping done at the mall or worse, Walmart. So listen carefully. For many stores, this week marks your last chance to place orders with free shipping and still get them in time for Christmas.

Luckily, Amazon has extended its holiday shipping cutoffs. The updated timeline is as follows:

Everyone can place orders with free shipping through December 19th and still expect to receive the items by December 25th. Otherwise, expedited shipping is going to cost you extra. Prime members (free trial available) can procrastinate up until December 22nd and their free 2-day shipping benefits will cover any additional fees. Starting Decemeber 23rd, all Amazon buyers will need to pay extra for one-day shipping. After that, your only options are same-day delivery or opt for a downloadable present like Prime or gift cards.
