As we welcome Black Friday and the holiday shopping season, the U.S. Mint is getting into the act by bringing back Free Standard Shipping. Buy whatever your want from the U.S. Mint online catalog and get free standard shipping until December 6, 2013.
According to sources, the free shipping promotion in September went very well bringing increased sales volume to the U.S. Mint. Since shipping and packaging are the few aspects that the U.S. Mint can control on its own, they are going to use whatever it takes to get noticed to bring collectors and gift buyers to their site.
They got me. I am going to be ordering my 2013 Presidential Dollar First Day Covers with the free shipping. I have to keep my collection up to date!
Unfortunately, the Teddy Roosevelt Coins and Chronicles set will not be released until December 17, after the free shipping sale.
