It’s almost Christmas, while Hanukkah is already in full swing, and the Apple store is helping last-minute shoppers with free two-hour delivery of some items.

You can literally order something on Christmas Eve and have it under the tree before Santa arrives, at no charge.

Apple store offers to ‘knock their stockings off’ with free 2-hour delivery

Those who live in large metropolitan areas with one or more Apple stores can always take advantage of two-hour deliveries from these retail locations. But these normally cost $9.

But Apple is now promising users can “get free two-hour delivery on eligible products when you order online by 12:00 p.m. on 12/24/22.”

The important caveat is “eligible products.” The list includes iPhone, Mac, iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, and Apple TV only. And the Macs can’t be customized, and other products can’t be engraved. This means Apple won’t rush you an AirTag for free, but you can always pick one up if there’s a store nearby: AirTags make great gifts.
