With Black Friday less than a month away and Christmas swooping in soon after, it's high time to start planning your attack for the holiday shopping season. One retailer is here to make some of the hard work easier.

Target is offering free 2-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items for the holidays, with no minimum purchase requirement and no membership needed. The deal will begin on November 1st and end on December 22nd. This isn't the first time Target has offered a promotion like this during Q4, but it's still a welcome bargain for online shoppers.

Lots of retailers offer free 2-day shipping, but very few do it with no caveats. Walmart, for example, requires a $35 minimum purchase, and Amazon only offers free 2-day shipping with a Prime membership. Target has free 2-day shipping year-round with REDcard memberships, which are technically free if you use the debit card version. However, for customers without traditional banking methods or an affinity for no-fuss shopping, this seasonal promotion is an oasis in a desert filled with fine print and red tape.

If you do have a REDcard, you'll get 5% off and free shipping, even on the items that don't fall under the umbrella of Target's holiday plans.

Customers can also use same-day delivery with Shipt, the new Drive Up service, and Target's frequent Cartwheel offers for convenient holiday shopping. Don't forget the store's exclusive brands, either. Stack all that with yet-to-be-announced Black Friday doorbusters, Cyber Monday promotions, and the infamous Target 10 Days of Deals we'll see in November, and you have tons of reasons to shop at the store this year. As if you needed more encouragement to make a #TargetRun.
