MINNEAPOLIS--()--One of the most comprehensive shipping programs in the retail landscape just got better right in time for the holidays. Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) is making it easier than ever to check off holiday shopping items by offering free online shipping through December 21st. The offer, valid on hundreds of thousands of items, including all CD’s, Blu-Ray and DVD movies as well as gaming software and accessories, will make it even easier for consumers to get their hands on the hottest holiday gifts.

In addition to the free online shipping offer, Best Buy recently launched an enhanced Store Pickup Plus program, which features benefits such as same-day pick-up in-store, allowing customers to designate a friend or family member to pick up their items in-store or ship out-of-stock items to their local Best Buy at no additional cost.
