Amazon Raises Free Shipping Minimum to $35
Have you heard? Amazon's Free Super Saver Shipping for $25 orders is a thing of the past. You now need to spend $35 to qualify for free shipping. This marks the first time in a decade that Amazon has changed the order minimum for free shipping in the US.
Note that this policy change doesn't affect Amazon Prime, which gets you free 2-day shipping (no order minimum!), plus a slew of other perks, for $79 a year. If you're a frequent online shopper, you'll easily recoup the membership cost in shipping savings. And with the holiday season just around the corner, this would be great time to check out Prime — especially the 30-day free trial. Did you almost forget to send Great Aunt Marcy a garlic press? She never has to know.
