NEW YORK — Procrastinators are coming out ahead this Christmas season as Free Shipping Day sweeps online retailers Thursday.

The rewarding one-day event started in 2007 and guarantees free shipping and delivery by Christmas Eve from participating stores.

More than 1,100 e-retailers are taking part and offer the free reward with no minimum purchase.

Free Shipping Day has turned into a popular event in the past few years as big-name stores join in to offer the discount.

Target, Neiman Marcus and ToysRUs are just a few of the shops that will offer free shipping on Thursday.
