Move over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and make room for yet another retail-inspired shopping event. Free Shipping Day is here -- or rather, it will be here on Thursday, Dec. 18 -- the last day someone can order a gift online and have it guaranteed to arrive on Christmas Eve with free shipping. Free Shipping Day is the brainchild of Luke Knowles, who hatched the idea just a few weeks ago. There are now 250 retailers participating in the campaign.

This is certainly something retailers are using to attract attention. According to iStorez, free shipping is currently the #1 type of promotion retailers are currently offering. Find those deals at http://www.istorez.com/s/free%20shipping.

This is well timed for last-minute Christmas shopping! I do wonder if this free shipping day should have happened a few days ago though - how many people still have gifts left to buy? Either way, I think it's a great idea to try to get a few more sales before the end of the year.

Anyway, a bunch of smaller stores (in addition to the large retailers listed in this article) are also participating. A bunch of those are here - http://cheaptweet.com/search?q=free+shipping

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
