LicketyShip, a.k.a. Kozmo 2.0, is offering its service for free today. LicketyShip combines the best of online gadget shopping (easy browsing from your office while you appear to be working), with the one good thing about physical retail: You get the product right away. Today and tomorrow, LicketyShip is free. Use the code LSFREE at checkout.

When you buy something on LicketyShip, the service gets the product for you at a retailer it has a relationship with and delivers it into your hands by courier within four hours. At the moment, the service is in beta and delivers to only the Northern California Bay Area.

The company is experimenting with pricing for its service. When I first covered the company, it was $19.99. Free is better. (You still have to pay for your purchase, of course.)

Anybody who tries this, please report your experiences here.
