Free Amazon Shipping | New $35 Order Minimum (Was $25)


Free Amazon Shipping | New $35 Order Minimum

While we LOVE shopping with Amazon, I was sad to see that the Free Super Saver Shipping minimum has changed from $25 to $35 as of yesterday, Oct. 21.  While it’s higher than I would like, it is still incredibly easy to make it to free shipping if you just combine a couple things you need every time you order.

In looking at other retail websites out there – who set their free shipping minimum at $50 – $75, it’s my opinion that Amazon is still about the most customer-friendly site out there.  This is also a good time to join Amazon Prime if you haven’t already…


For those of you who order often from Amazon – or anticipate doing so for the holiday season – I HIGHLY recommend getting Amazon Prime.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my Amazon Prime.  I don’t know what I’d do without it, because I’m such a last-minute person that sometimes I need that 2-day shipping pretty badly :)

Amazon Prime includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping, with no minimum order size, on more than 15 million items. 

This alone is worth the cost to me.  I want to be able to grab great deals quickly, without browsing around trying to pad my order to reach $35.  Plus, sometimes it’s just plain cheaper than the gas it would take to drive to the nearest Toys R Us or Best Buy, etc… (which are 30 minutes away)
