Get a free Zappos VIP membership, which comes with free one-day shipping, when you share your name, e-mail and create a password for the site. Offer ends Oct. 8, 2010. Upgrading to one-day business shipping usually costs $25 per order. The VIP membership is valid as long as you keep the account open, I believe.
Zappos offers non-VIPs (i.e. everyone) free shipping and free returns, costs that are factored into the price of their shoes. The site also sells clothes and accessories.
