JcPenney Focus: Free shipping coupons

Aug 19, 2008
Do you regularly shop online? Do you purchase products online because you think it's cheaper? The chances of you buying a product for less money than what you find in the local store may not be anymore. Gas prices have risen dramatically in the last year, leaving retailers to make up the costs. This has begun to spill over into shipping and handling charges too.

Suppose you buy a product for $35. Chances are the online store you are buying from will also charge you a sales tax along with the shipping fee. You are looking at a cost of $45 at minimum. If you can find the product in the store, the chance of you buying it online with a $10 increase is unlikely.

For this reason, some retails stores are offering good coupon like deals to get visitors to purchase items off their website. Some will use gimmicks of buy one, get one free. Others will offer 10 or 25 percent coupons after you spend a certain amount. Still, others are going a step further. Some are offering coupons for free shipping.

JcPenney is one store among many who have begun to offer free shipping service. What began as a single store in 1902, it grew to become a large retail business. It offers all kinds of products including clothes, jewelry, bedding, small appliances and much more.

For those who are unable to shop at a local JcPenney store, the online store is a great advantage. However, many people may feel turned off by shopping online because of the shipping costs. Retail executives have opened many warehouses located strategically around the United States. This way they can give shipping costs low or offer the free shipping service.

They have also taken their shipping further. Promotional codes, which can be found throughout the Internet and newspapers, can be used to decrease the costs to you the consumer. The JcPenney website also has the option to get codes for specific coupons sent directly to your email.

When you purchase products online, you should always take into account how big you product is because weight will count in shipping costs as well as how you want it shipped. That is also taken into account to give you your final costs.

If you have found a JcPenney coupon, make sure you see if it is in date before you use it online. Websites have a habit of not clearing out out-of-date coupons and codes. As a consumer be aware of this.
