BENTONVILLE, Ark., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- U.S. retail giant Walmart said Thursday shipping for about 60,000 store items would be free through Dec. 20.

The store estimated the shipping deal would save customers about $25 million this shopping season. The offer includes free shipping for electronics, home appliances, furniture, toys, jewelry and other items. It does not include tires or Walmart Martketplace items.

Shoppers from Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico could still expect a surcharge on shipping, the store said.

Senior vice president and general manager of Walmart.com said the offer was an early Christmas gift.

"Customers are doing all they can to save money this holiday, so we're excited to offer free shipping to home with no minimum purchase requirement as an early Christmas present to them."
