Twelve Days of Commerce #16: So You Missed the Cheap Shipping Deadline

We all know that, as a holiday shopper, you're both lazy and cheap -- you don't want to go to any effort, and you don't want to pay more than a pittance. So traveling to a jam-packed mall is out, and paying for express shipping is also out.

But how can you get those gifts that you really have to have, without any serious effort? Particularly since you've dawdled until this late, and lost out on all of the free shipping offers?

How about a gift card you can print out yourself? There's no shipping -- though it will use up some of your precious Strategic Ink Reserves -- and you can bask in the glory of being yet another shmoe who bare-facedly says to the recipient, "Here: you'll have to pick your own present this year. But I can make you shop at a particular retailer!"
