If you haven't finished your online Christmas shopping yet, it's time to buckle down and wrap it up — in more ways than one! Try to place your orders ASAP, as many stores have passed their standard shipping cutoff dates. At this point, plenty of retailers are still providing 2-day and expedited shipping, but you're cutting it close.

Before you place your next online order, check our tables below to see what the Christmas shipping deadlines are for your favorite retailers. Not all of these will be guarantees either. Some retailers have noted that they'll do their best, but can't ensure an order will arrive in time, even if you adhere to the cutoff dates. Additionally, keep in mind that most stores use "business days" when calculating arrival times, so plan accordingly!

Check out the 2-day and expedited holiday shipping deadlines for 2022 below, but consider ordering online and picking up in-store if you can. That way, you can be sure you'll have your items on time.
