- Exclusions. In most cases, these shipping offers are valid only on qualifying orders, which means certain products are excluded. Some locations may also be excluded.
- Timing. Some stores offer free two-day shipping, but many offer free standard shipping, which takes longer to arrive.
- Memberships. At certain stores, rewards members or cardholders receive better shipping options, which can include faster delivery and lower order minimums.
