Dec. 18 is the last day you can ship gifts so they’ll arrive before Christmas Eve without paying rush delivery fees. Dec. 18 also happens to be Free Shipping Day.

As the name implies, Free Shipping Day is when many online merchants offer free shipping without the usual restrictions, such as minimum order amounts. The 2015 Free Shipping Day roster of participating stores includes many of the biggest names in online shopping — nearly 800 at last count. Some of the more prominent names include:

Don’t see your favorite store on this list? They might still be taking part. Some stores specifically ask they not be added to the list until Dec. 18, so keep an eye on the Free Shipping Day website. The site allows you to search by categories such as automotive, electronics, sporting goods and more, making it easy for you to shop and ship.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
