    For procrastinators and last minute shoppers, Apple is planning to offer free next day delivery on December 23rd, ensuring Apple products and accessories will arrive in time for the upcoming Christmas holiday. According to Apple's website, customers who place an order for an in-stock item by 2:00 p.m. on 12/23 will be eligible for free next day delivery.

    In-store pickup orders made two hours before closing on 12/24 will also be available in any Apple retail location. Holiday hours for each retail store are available using Apple's store locator tool.


    Apple already offers free next day shipping on the iPhone, but other products like iPads, Apple Watches, Macs, and accessories are delivered using two day shipping. Products ordered ahead of 12/23 will deliver on time using the standard two day shipping that Apple provides.

    As a reminder, Apple's annual extended return policy is now in effect on the Apple Online Store and in retail locations in the United States, Canada, and many other countries. Most products and accessories purchased between November 1 and December 25 are eligible for return until January 8, 2016, extending the typical 14-day return policy. In some European countries, return dates are extended until January 20, 2016.

    Costco give a $200 cash card for verizon iPhone 6s/+. It will be a better gift than the free next day delivery. :eek:

    I didn't realize their return policy was so short. I thought it was 30 days.

    This may come as a shock to you, but one has absolutely NOTHING to do with the other. How does someone come up with something like this?

    Costco signed you up for an over priced contract and you think you got a gift?

    This is the first Christmas without an Apple product in the last 4 years! Also, this year was my lowest spend overall on Apple products. I don't forecast a very rich 2016 in Apple products for me. Just the iPhone 7, if I like it enough. No laptops, no iPads, watches, nor Apple Musics...

    Promises promises...
    Unless Santa is dropping these last minute purchases down the chimney himself, your taking a HUGE risk if you want this under the tree on Christmas and think Fedex or UPS will be a guaranteed delivery.
    That Guarantee ended last week for Christmas delivery

    Same here! I guess things is changing for me now. Not even excited with iPhone 6 came out, not the same way I used to. Unfortunately I dropped my iPhone 5 recently so I got the 6S Plus. I sold my iPad Air 2 recently and I don't missed it at all. I thought the iPad Pro gets me excited again. I'm glad I didn't pre-ordered it, because I just saw one at the store couple weeks ago and there's no appeal to me. I'm very happy with my decisions lately to stay away from Apple as much as I can. I will be keeping my iMac 27" late 2012 for couple more years and we'll see. They made me disappointed with Aperture and still looking for replacement. I'm on Adobe CC right now and hardly use it not happy with Lightroom. I will be waiting maybe iPhone 7S could my last but I still like iOS. SMH.

    Yeah... I know what you mean. Our laptops are pretty solid for another couple of years. Even our 2011 Mac Mini with an updated SSD is king underneath the TV, so no need to update it. iPad Pro is not for us either. Got the wife a Wacom tablet for notes and drawing for $70... no need to spend more than 15x that for the convenience of not having it plugged in to a computer. Guess we'll see about that iPhone 7 :)

    "From one gift comes many" -- Let me guess, an American that was educated in the liberal union public education system made that advertisement.

    Plus, is the shipping really free or are prices elsewhere going to be raised or wages and jobs cut to compensate?

    Why do people love self-deluding themselves? Santa is a construct and a myth. Some former drug dealer played the mythological character in a movie. We dupe kids but then punish them for lying, though on the bright side few of them ask about the double standard and contextual differences... but society really is a lie, isn't it?
