Best Buy Dangles Free 2-Day Shipping to Lure Holiday Shoppers
Not so fast, Amazon.com. Best Buy has raised the stakes in the online shopping wars by offering an eye-popping holiday promotion: free two-day delivery on thousands of items on its website. The deal, which went live over the weekend, is an aggressive move by the electronics retailer to win over holiday shoppers who are especially concerned about shipping speed when making online purchases in the home stretch before Christmas. Best Buy hasn't yet announced an end date for the holiday delivery offer.
