Target really wants your business. It wants your business so badly, in fact, that it's taking on Amazon head-to-head by slashing your cost on online orders.
Starting today, you can get free holiday shipping on any item purchased from Target's online store until December 20. No "spend $50-and-your-order-is-frees" either. A rep for target said:
We know shipping costs play a big role in online purchasing decisions. We believe our free shipping offer will create excitement and incremental sales for Target.
You'll be able to pick up stocking stuffers without having to jam your shopping cart with $5 worth of stuff to save $10 on shipping, and that's pretty cool.
And the best part? It's actually safer than dealing with a big-box store's point-of-sale system. The Target breach happened because of malware that infected the credit card processing system in stores. Card processing online is handled differently, which actually makes it safer.
