If you haven't heard of Free Shipping Day, you've been missing out. The unofficial holiday, "celebrated" this year on Friday, Dec. 16, is your chance to get free shipping on last-minute holiday gifts. 

The more-than 1,000 participating retailers are offering one day of totally free shipping — with no minimum purchase required — but you have to order today.

So which retailers are participating?

A full list of participating stores — and the codes you'll need to get free shipping from each one — is available at FreeShippingDay.com, but some big-name retailers that are participating this year include Target, Barnes and Noble, ModCloth, Toys 'R' Us, Gamespot, Best Buy and Petco.

But if you happen to miss out on Friday's free shipping extravaganza, don't worry, there are plenty of stores that offer free shipping year-round — or you could just shell out the big bucks to make sure whatever you ordered gets here in time for the holidays.
