Holiday Shopping: Tips and Tricks


It’s that time. The most wonderful time of the year, where you can observe your family dysfunctions, eat your feelings, and wake up at the crack of dawn to shop. But for real, we love the holidays, and we want you to enjoy them without getting overwhelmed. Check out this list of tips to make your holiday shopping easy-peasy-pumpkin-pie.


Free shipping? I want in.

During our Weekend Warrior Sale, hop on the free economy shipping bandwagon from November 28th through December 3rd*.


When do I have to order by to get my gifts shipped in time for Christmas?

Here are the cut-off dates, so you’re not accidentally holding onto any future birthday presents:

  •        December 15th 11:59pm EST – Economy Shipping Cutoff
  •        December 17th 11:59pm EST – Ground Shipping Cutoff
  •        December 19th 11:59pm EST – Rush Shipping Cutoff
  •        December 21st 11:59pm EST – Express Shipping Cutoff


But it doesn’t fit! Not to worry, here’s the Holiday Return Policy.

We’ve extended our Policy so you can enjoy your holiday time with the fam instead of worrying about returns. Between November 10th and January 1st, products can be returned up to February 15th, 2014. For all you Finish Line newbies, this is a lot longer than our usual 45-day Return Policy. Happy holidays!


I need more time! Heard that. Here are our extended shopping hours:

Black Friday starts early online with our Weekend Warrior Sale that will launch November 28th 12:01 EST and run through December 2nd. Our stores are staying open later, too. Check out our Holiday Store Hours to view the extended hours for the stores near you.
