Finish Line Free Shipping: 3 Tricks to Get Free Delivery, Any Order!

free shipping mailmanHow to get free shipping on any order at So, last week I needed to buy a pair of shoes for my son for school, as it seems his feet grow about a half size every month. Not only are the shoes he wanted expensive, but shipping costs $10 at Finish Line!

That’s not ok. After doing some research, I realized that there are a few “hacks,” as the kids say, to avoid paying for shipping. Here are your best options:

#1: Finish Line: FREE SHIPPING no minimum

Who knew that there is an entire section of hundreds of styles of shoes at that ship for free with no minimum? It’s true, and because there are over 1000 shoe styles that ship free, the easiest thing to do is sort by size and brand.

The reason why this trick is great is that most all of the shoes in the free shipping section are eligible for discounts from any of the current Finish Line coupon codes, so you get a double-discount!

They will usually also feature free shipping w/ no minimum on at least one major brand, like Nike, PUMA, or Adidas, every month. *The downside is that sale or clearance shoes of that featured brand are often excluded. We post these sneaky codes or sales at our deals page.

#2: FREE SHIPPING on any order, delivered to your local store

So, maybe the shoes you want aren’t in the free shipping section? Here’s another trick to getting free delivery: just specify ship to store at checkout, and choose your nearest store location for pickup. If your shoes or boots are in-stock, you can pick them up same-day. If they aren’t, they will arrive in about 2-3 days.

The advantage to this method (as opposed to buying the shoes in-store) is that you can use any of their online promo codes to get a better price. (Printable coupons are non-existent) So, if you have a Finish Line store in town, consider this to be a good option. If you live an hour outside of Fargo, then skip this method!

Unlike “ship to home,” there are also no shoes excluded from free delivery when they are shipped to a Finish Line store.

#3: Finish Line: FREE SHIPPING on $75+ w/code

Apparently the cost of shoes, college, and Disney World have all doubled in the last decade, (while personal income has stayed the same) so most shoes now cost over $75. While this is not good for our society, at least it means that a ton of shoes are eligible for the “free shipping on $75+” code from

The downside of this method is that an actual free shipping code is only available half the time, and it requires a minimum order. Another negative is that you can only use one code at a time, so by using a Finish Line free shipping code, you won’t be able to use one for a percent-off discount.

Well, even though the downside of the in-store “trick” is that you actually have to leave the house, it’s a good option for a lot of people. There’s a Finish Line store in the mall near my house, and I’d rather stop in and get my shoes that I paid less for (using a promo code online) while avoiding the $10 shipping charge! I hope one of these tricks works out for you, as I believe shipping should be as free as a wild stallion running freely, in the land of the free!

    Here’s the TRICK:

    When you are logged in at at the final order review page, click “edit shipping address.”
    Then, hit the “update shipping address” link.
    Now it should list the shipping cost as FREE

    It’s a glitch that has been going on for some time now, and I’ve used this trick twice for free shipping with no minimum.
