— Still shopping for the holidays? Buy online on Dec. 17 and get free shipping.

More than 700 online retailers, from small specialty shops to the well-known big-box stores, will ship for free and guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve.

The list includes stores such as Macy's, Nordstrom, JC Penney, Sears, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn and Borders.

Some stores have minimum order restrictions – most around $50 – but half of those listed offer free shipping on all orders.

Wednesday was the last day to send packages parcel post and have them arrive by Dec. 25.

The deadline for shipping Priority Mail is Dec. 21, and the deadline for Express Mail is Dec. 23
