Apple Now Offering Free Next-Day Shipping for Last-Minute Holiday Shoppers

Apple today upgraded its free holiday shipping offer (via 9to5Mac) for online orders in the United States to include next-day shipping on all of the company's major in-stock products. The move will help last-minute shoppers make sure they receive their gifts in time for the Christmas weekend.

The deadline for free next-day shipping is tomorrow and the offer is good on all major products with the exception of the iPhone 4S, which is in short supply and for which the holiday shipping deadline has already passed, and engraved iPods and iPads. Build-to-order Macs are also no longer available in time for delivery before Christmas.

Apple announced late last month that it would extend its usual free shipping offer to include orders under $50 leading up to the holidays. The company last week bumped the offer up to free 2-3 business day shipping for its major products, making an increased effort to capture shoppers' business as time began to run short.

Why are you ordering 3 engraved iPads? Good luck reselling them.

Not everyone cares more about resale value than getting what they want. Why do you care what he/she ordered?

Yes, yes, yes, free shipping. What we really need on this site is more articles about patent litigation.

Does anyone know if refurbs are included too? I might be able to convert my father-in-law to Mac, as his crappy laptop is giving up the ghost...

I ordered a refurb iMac earlier this evening and even though it originally said it would be Two Day, when I got the confirmation that it was shipped it was marked as Next Day (so I'll get it tomorrow, Wednesday). So yes, I'd say refurbs are definitely included!
