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)
Unlimited streaming of over 41,000 movies and TV episodes through Prime Instant Video
Access to over 350,000 books to borrow through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library
You can also add up to *4* family members or co-workers onto your Prime Account – so help your mom/dad/grandma or friend out by getting them free shipping as well! Find out how to Share Your Prime Benefits.
