We independently selected these deals and products because we love them, and we think you might like them at these prices.

As much as we love shopping in store, they don't always have the styles, sizes or colors we want or need. When you're shopping online, the possibilities are pretty much endless. The only real downside is, you have to wait to get your items. Thankfully, many online stores offer expedited shipping where you can get your purchases in two to three days or even the next day. It's the kind of thing you want when you forget you have a birthday party on Sunday and you need to buy a gift or a last-minute event comes up and you need a new outfit

If you're wondering which sites offer the fastest shipping, we've got you covered. We've rounded up 15 of the best online retailers that are fast and reliable with their shipping. Check those out below.

Free People offers express shipping where orders that are placed before 1 p.m. EST get shipped that day and should be at your home within the next two to three days. Same goes for overnight shipping which will get to you within one to two days. Typically, express shipping costs $10 with a purchase less than $150 while overnight shipping costs $20.
