Now more than ever we’re relying on online shopping to get our hands on clothing and toys, among other items considered “nonessential” and of course our first thought is to head to Amazon. But Amazon recently announced they would start prioritizing the shipping of “essential items” like groceries and household cleaners to help ensure people have the products they need. You can still order other items from Amazon, but you definitely won’t get them within two days. That’s where other retailers, like Costco, Home Depot, Walmart, and, of course, Target, come into play.
Amazon may be famous for its free 2-day shipping, but it’s certainly not the only retailer to offer the convenient service. If you’re searching for places that will get your online shopping purchases to you in two days or less, try one of these retailers instead.
It’s no secret: Target has it all. So, as the weather warms up and you’re in search of a great, new patio set, get it at Target. Or, if you’re looking to add a few new staple pieces to your spring wardrobe, head to Target first.
Target even offers same-day shipping on many items across all departments. Simply click on “Same Day Delivery” in the menu at the top of the page and shop away. Keep in mind, though, that, due to high demand, some items may be unavailable or delayed.
No need to stand in those long Costco lines for great deals on electronics and food items when you can simply shop online. Plus, Costco also offers two-day delivery on certain items, including Kirkland Signature items, coffee, cleaning and laundry products, health and personal care, pantry and dry goods, canned and packaged foods, pet supplies, and more.
Walmart has free grocery pickup for those who don’t mind driving up to the store, but for those who’d rather have their items shipped directly to their home, Walmart offers free two-day shipping on $35+ orders comprised of eligible items. If you’ve been eyeing a patio set to spruce up your backyard or need to stock up on baby supplies, they’ll get to you in just two days. Walmart also offers free next-day (for eligible items) and free three- to five-day standard shipping on orders of $35 or more.
In addition to offering free one- to two-day delivery and same-day delivery on prescriptions and essentials, like vitamins, allergy relief and more, CVS is also a great place to shop for cleaning supplies.
Walgreens has partnered up with Postmates and now offers same-day delivery for $1.99. Essential items, like cleaning wipes, disinfectant spray, hand soap, and toilet paper, are limited, but you can also shop beauty, feminine care, medicines, baby, and grocery items, among others.
For all your beauty and personal care needs, Sephora offers free one- to three-day shipping on all orders for a limited time. Simply use the promo code FREESHIP. Once that offer expires, though, Sephora’s usual free one- to three-day shipping applies to orders $50 and over. Orders under $50 qualify for standard one- to three-day shipping for $5.95. Guaranteed two-business-day shipping costs $10.95, and guaranteed one-business-day shipping costs $16.95.
7. Home Depot
Looking to work on home projects while cooped up? Home Depot offers free same-day in-store pickup and free two-day delivery on most orders over $45. Same-day and next-day express delivery are also available but for a delivery fee based on the size and weight of your order. And don’t forget to check out their home decor and outdoor living section because Home Depot has a lot more to offer other than tools and building supplies!
Jet has it all, from home decor (including Drew Barrymore’s Flower Home!) and kitchen essentials to electronics, beauty, and groceries. And in addition to free returns, Jet offers free shipping on orders over $49.
9. Bed Bath & Beyond
Bed Bath & Beyond’s shipping policy includes free standard, three- to six-day shipping on orders over $39. Otherwise, you can expect to pay anywhere from $5.99 to $21.99 for standard (three- to six-days) to express (one- to two-days) — for shipments to the contiguous U.S. Same-day delivery costs $9.99 on orders up to $38.99 and $4.99 on orders of more than $39.
10. Williams Sonoma
What better time to try out those Instant Pot recipes you’ve had pinned for months than now? Or, if you’re finally ready to purchase your very own Le Creuset, why not dropped it into your virtual Williams Sonoma cart? Currently, Williams Sonoma’s shipping rate is $5.99 for three- to five-day shipping on orders up to $15; next-day shipping costs $31.99. The rates then increase as your order total increases up to $42.99 for next-day shipping on orders up to $150.
