PSA: Starting today it’s not going to cost you nearly as much to bag free shipping on Amazon

  • Published on: February 18, 2017

Prime members receive free 2-day shipping on millions of Amazon products every day, but if you don’t subscribe to Amazon’s $99/year service you’ve had to spend at least $49 to get free standard shipping. That all changed this morning when Amazon quietly updated its free shipping policy to cover any order of $35 or more.

This reverses Amazon’s move from a year ago when its free shipping threshold jumped from $35 to $49. We’re big fans of Prime and if you like scoring deals you should definitely be a member, but this is still welcomed news for those of you who don’t want to shell out the $99 per year cost of Prime.

This change could be in response to Walmart recently announcing free 2-day shipping on orders of $35+ for all online shoppers.

Amazon’s new shipping policy is as follows:

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.

With free shipping, your order will be delivered 5–8 business days after all your items are available to ship, including pre-order items.

You can view Amazon’s previous free shipping policy by heading over to this saved copy of its help page from yesterday.
