Hot News – Amazon Raises Minimum For Free Shipping!

by Mackenzie on October 22, 2013

Amazon LogoIf you haven’t heard already there was a huge news announcement from Amazon this morning. They have raised the minimum for Free Super Saver Shipping to a new minimum of $35 per order. This is the first time they have raised the minimum in ten years and because of the new minimum you will have to spend more money per order in order to not have to pay for shipping.

Here is Amazon’s statement:

“Amazon’s minimum order size for free shipping has changed to $35. This is the first time in more than a decade that Amazon has altered the minimum order for free shipping in the US. During that time, we have expanded free shipping selection by millions of items across all 40 product categories. Look for “FREE Shipping” on product pages to discover eligible items. “

I personally have signed up for Amazon Prime because I enjoy getting two-day shipping for free on any order with no minimum and I use it tremendously during the Christmas shopping season. So now is a great time to consider getting Amazon Prime for yourself especially if you tend to ship your gifts! It’s only $79 per year and comes with a free one month trial in addition to free instant videos, free kindle book from the lending library, and more year round. So if you shop Amazon frequently or use it for Christmas shopping then now is a great time to join and avoid having to spend the $35 minimum or paying additional shipping on smaller orders.

Don’t have Amazon Prime? Sign up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime Trial and enjoy all the benefits including free 2-day shipping and free Amazon Instant Videos!
