At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Don’t miss out on any of NerdWallet’s eagerly awaited 2016 Black Friday ad leaks this season. Check back regularly for updates on the best holiday deals from your favorite retailers. Black Friday is Nov. 25.

The most iconic images of Black Friday are of packed malls and lines wrapped around big-box retailers, but many Black Friday shoppers never set foot in a store. That’s because deals are also abundant at cyber storefronts.

If you’re more of an online Black Friday shopper than an in-store deal seeker, read on for our roundup of free shipping offers for the shopping holiday.

Be mindful — your generous gift list might result in a bit of credit card balance. In the 2015 holiday season, 44% of American shoppers incurred debt and took about two months to pay it off. If you’re part of this crowd, make sure to avoid paying interest with the right credit card. NerdWallet’s list of best credit cards for holiday shopping includes cards with 0% interest periods that may last from 9 to 21 months. There are plenty of reasons to stress over the holidays; don’t let credit card interest be one of them.
