Christmas Shipping Deadlines for 2011

Published
By , dealnews Senior Feature Writer

It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas, and with just 24 shopping days left 'til the big day, we've examined some important shipping deadlines for 15 of your favorite stores. (We'll update our list as more vendors announce their calendars.)

Our list includes dates that are verified by each vendor, although we recommend padding your shipping by a day or two in the event of weather delays. And keep in mind that Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, so you'll want to be extra careful about these deadlines, to avoid paying hefty weekend delivery fees.
