I'll just come right out and say what we all think when we shop online: shipping fees are the worst. Just when you think you found an amazing deal, you get slapped with an extra charge at checkout.
But – luckily – that's not the case everywhere. To help you avoid any nasty in-cart surprises, we put together a list of all the Canadian stores that offer free shipping with no minimum spend! So bookmark this guide and make sure you check it out whenever you're shopping online!
Some stores offer free shipping promotions for a limited time (or with a minimum spend), and you can check out all the latest free shipping deals, too!

Keep in mind that most of these stores only offer free shipping to most parts of Canada, and there may be additional charges for oversize items or delivery to the territories or more remote parts of the country.
Plus, some stores, like L.L.Bean, aren't Canadian retailers, but they'll still ship to Canada for free!
Department stores and other bigger retailers often have a variety of free shipping options, and delivery policies can vary for different departments and kinds of items. Here's a rundown of the shipping policies at some of Canada's most popular stores.
Hudson's Bay has a LOT of different shipping options. Basically, almost all orders over $99 will ship free, and beauty orders of $49 or more ship free. If you're shopping with a Hudson's Bay Credit Card, shipping is free on orders over $45 or beauty orders over $29. If you don't meet one of those thresholds, standard shipping is an extra $8. Alternately, some items qualify for free in-store pickup.
Amazon.ca offers free shipping on most orders over $35 – but you'll get an even better deal with Amazon Prime, which gives you free two-day shipping on qualifying items. Be careful when buying from third-party sellers though, since their items often aren't Amazon Prime eligible and will usually have additional shipping charges (which can get pretty pricey).
Walmart.ca, like The Bay, has all kinds of different free shipping options to choose from. In general, home delivery is free on orders over $50, and you can opt for free in-store pickup on orders over $25. Additionally, you can choose free pick-up from a Canada Post location on orders over $25.
Chapters Indigo has a fairly straightforward shipping policy, and they sometimes run promotions for free shipping with no minimum spend – so stay tuned to our blog to see when those pop up! On a regular day, though, most orders over $25 ship free, and you can ship almost any order to a Chapters Indigo store for free.
Best Buy Canada
Best Buy Canada offers free shipping on almost all orders over $35. The only major exception to this rule is anything with scheduled delivery, which will run you an additional $49.99. Just be careful when you're shopping from the Best Buy Marketplace, since (like with Amazon third-party sellers), shipping charges on these items might vary.
And if it's textbooks, novels or picture books you're after, we put together a quick list of some of the places you can buy used books in Canada and get free shipping!
