Amazon knows everyone waited until the last minute to buy Christmas presents. Unfortunately, with all the orders expected during the holidays, Amazon can't exactly accomodate everyone's procrastination. Here are all the deadlines you need to know about, with the first major one happening today. Wednesday, Dec. 18, one week before Christmas, is your last day to get free shipping on orders over $25 and expect to get those items before Christmas.

Don't wait much longer

Amazon's Free Shipping Deadline

For non-Prime members, today is the last day to get free shipping on orders over $25 and get those items before Christmas. Lucky for you there's still plenty of deals available if you're doing some last minute shopping.

Free Shipping

Free shipping over $25 is a standard policy for Amazon, but from here on out if you don't have a Prime membership you will probably have to pay extra and possibly upgrade to expedited shipping to get everything in on time. Of course, if you do have a Prime mebership then you don't have to worry about this just yet. You still have a few more days to get your free two-day shipping benefit on. If you're still doing some shopping, sign up for a free 30-day trial to get all the benefits of Prime.

There's no shame in last minute shopping, and there are still plenty of ways to save, too! Amazon has all kinds of last minute deals today, including 40% off gaming accessories, a Gladwell electric mop on sale for $99.99 from $150, and 30% off some holiday treats like assorted nuts and chocolate-covered pretzels.

Excited to watch the season finale of The Mandalorian today and then see the new Star Wars movie this weekend?
