By now, you’re surely familiar with Amazon Prime and all of its benefits. While two-day shipping is particularly handy from one of the internet’s largest retailer, sometimes another site just has a better deal. That’s where ShopRunner comes in.

This subscription service provides fast two-day shipping from hundreds of online retailers. If you’re an American Express card holder, you may already have access to this service. Either way, you can grab a month of free 2-day shipping right now. Head below for more details.


While it’s fairly well-known that you can grab a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime at any time, ShopRunner is a lesser known commodity. This service has partnered with a number of popular online retailers, including: Staples, Toys R Us, Eddie Bauer, Newegg, MacMall and many others. Additionally, ShopRunner offers free return shipping on all eligible two-day items.

Select American Express members already have access to ShopRunner’s services. You’ll want to head over to this page and see if your card eligible. It’s a noteworthy perk of your card’s services that is worth taking advantage of.

So how can you take advantage of ShopRunner during the holiday season? First, you’ll want to sign up for a free 30-day trial. This will give you two-day shipping throughout the upcoming shopping window leading up to Christmas. If you are happy with the service, you can continue on for a year at $79 or $8.95 per month. Otherwise, simply cancel the service before your trial is over.
