Don’t have Amazon Prime? Worry not. This new offer by Amazon is bound to get you all excited for the holidays! Along with finding some amazing holiday deals, now you also get free shipping so you can get your goodies just in time for the holiday season!
Amazon announced recently that it is offering free shipping with no minimum purchase on orders delivered through the holidays. The online retail giant also said it is offering free same-day shipping on more than 3 million items to Amazon Prime shoppers as it looks to boost membership.
- That means, no minimum order of $25 is needed. You can get free shipping regardless of how much you spend.
- The promotion is good for Amazon’s 5-8 day shipping speed. However, prime members will still get their items in two days.
Amazon did not announce a cutoff date for the promotion but said that free shipping will be available for all orders arriving in time for Christmas. The company usually sets the final date toward the end of the season.
Amazon’s plan could overshadow holiday strategies from top competitors like Target and Walmart.
Target last month said it would offer free two-day holiday shipping on hundreds of thousands of items without a minimum purchase or membership. A shift from earlier this year when shoppers could receive free shipping only if they spent $35 or used a Target loyalty card.
Walmart, which already offered free two-day shipping in the U.S. on purchases of at least $35. They last month said millions of items sold by third-party merchants in its marketplace would also get free two-day shipping with no membership fee.
The war for online holiday shoppers is already off to a roaring start. And Amazon is preparing to take the lion’s share of online shopping again this season!
Amazon’s holiday promotion is only available for the United States.
