Google Store offering free expedited shipping for Christmas orders

Hey all you last-minute shoppers! The Google Store (opens in new tab) is offering free expedited shipping on all orders, ensuring everything will arrive ahead of Christmas Day. But you'll have to act fast, as the delivery window closes December 21 at 3 p.m. ET, though you won't want to cut it too close to that deadline.

This is great news if you've got some people left to hit on your list, as Google's got some of the hottest tech available this holiday season. As always, a Google Chromecast makes a great gift for just about anyone, with the newer Chromecast Ultra an ideal gift for someone with a new 4K TV. If you're buying for someone with a Google Pixel, get a Daydream View and give the gift of VR. Get your loved one a Google Home and make them the envy of everyone on the block. Or be the greatest Santa of all time and put a Google Pixel under the tree.

Google's shipping page says you can get expedited shipping before Christmas for order placed before December 21 at 3 p.m. ET, but also includes a note about orders about shipments placed after 11am local time counting from the day after you place your order.

The Google Store is packed with a ton of great stuff, and it's your last chance to get your order order in before Christmas, so don't be left out in the cold!

  • Pixel still starting out at $649+. How about a little Christmas cheer Google?
  • I'd say we'll get that "cheer" shortly after the S8 releases.
  • April can't come soon enough... S8 is going to knock the specs out of the park. I really want to like the Pixel I really do but I'm going to wait and see what the Pixel 2 is going to be like...
  • I ordered Google WiFi a couple days ago. My estimate is after Christmas 😞
    I wonder if Google will speed up my stuff?
  • Everytime I've checked it just has a button that says "Join the Wait list", even though I've already done that. I've only found a few places on Amazon that offers to sell it, but their prices run anywhere from $400-800+ and they don't ship until the middle of January.
