Amazon Lowers Free Shipping Minimum

Amazon has lowered its free shipping minimum to $35 to counter Walmart. It was $49 previously.

All orders of $35 or more of eligible items across any product category qualify for FREE Shipping. Orders including $25 or more of eligible books also qualify for FREE Shipping

The move follows Walmart announcement of free two-day shipping on more than two million items without a membership fee and free shipping to home for orders $35 and up.

Amazon's free two day shipping still requires a Prime membership. More details at the link below...

As much as I hate Walmart, I thank them right now for competition against Amazon. $25 min shipping in the old days was fine, but $50?!?

So I am confused I have always and still do get prime(free 2day) shipping on orders even down to $10 sometimes a little lower. Was I grandfathered in since I signed up from day one of prime?

No, this is for non-Prime shoppers. Prime we already had 2-day free (for "Prime eligible" items regardless of cost), plus same day in certain locations for $35+ orders. Non-Prime eligible items, you pay whatever shipping the seller is charging (sometimes free). There are also "Add-on" items that are only shipped with larger items. Just found out that diapers are cheaper with a Prime membership (and subscribing to the product). Plus we get the videos, music, photo storage, etc.

About time! Healthy corporate competition will always benefit us all customers.

Good news! I could always pad to get to 25 and possibly 35, but 50 was way too much and I started to ignore deals from Amazon because of it.
