Shop Runner | My New Best Friend For The Holidays!

Oh the possibilities! I read about this in the newspaper today and had to check it out. If you like Amazon Prime, you are going to love Shop Runner!

Shop Runner, is super new, they just released it, and technically is it is still in Beta, but it comes at a great time, since Holiday shopping is right around the corner.

So what is it?
It is a paid membership like Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom, that works with stores like Toys-R-Us, Babies-R-Us, Rockport, Calvin Klein and more. They are adding, Rue La La, Swirl, Allergy Grocer and a bunch more soon. For your $79 membership fee, you get free 2-day shipping on any sized order. But, it's even better, because right now, you can get this FREE for 30 days. Sign up for a trial membership and if you don't want to keep it, you simply cancel it and you will not be charged. If you do want to keep it, they will bill your credit card and you don't have to do a thing.

You can also add up to 4 members of your household to share the free shipping, which is great!

I signed up for the trial and then headed to Babies-R-Us to try it out... SUPER EASY! I added 4 items that were $1 in my cart. I went to checkout and I saw the Shop Runner option:

I clicked on the "sign in" option and signed in to my Shop Runner Account (I did not have to leave the Babies-R-Us page - awesome).

Then it applied the free shipping and that is it!

Already saved $5.17! I like that you don't have to remember to go to the Shop Runner page 1st, like Ebates or ShopAtHome, because I sometimes forget and then get mad at myself for not remembering and missing out on savings. 

Since this is still in Beta, some of the stores are not available yet, but they are listed as coming soon. Hopefully before Christmas. I'm guessing that if they do good in Beta, more retailers will join and that would be even better!
