AM Inbox: Shipping deadlines banners

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Lane Bryant, 12/12 — Last Chance To Save $125 Or More – Now Extended Thru Monday
Most large retailers don’t have a single order-by date. There are different deadlines for ground shipping, expedited shipping and overnight shipping; for drop shipping and ship-to-store services; for delivery to different regions of the U.S. or to different countries; and for different deadlines for customized, personalized, oversized, digital, etc. products. In this email, Lane Bryant reassures subscribers that there’s still plenty of time for ship-to-store and home shipping, pitching ship-to-store as a free delivery option.
