Heads up Amazon Shoppers! It appears that the minimum FREE shipping threshold, for NON-Prime members, has been raised from $35 to $49. 🙁 There hasn’t been an official statement released (that I am aware of), but it’s very obvious when you head to checkout.
Orders including $25 or more of eligible books qualify for FREE Shipping. All orders of $49 or more of eligible items across any product category also qualify for FREE Shipping. With free shipping, your order will be delivered 5-8 business days after all of your items are available to ship, including pre-order items.
Note that Amazon Prime members will continue to receive free 2-day shipping with no minimum purchase.
1. Unlimited FREE two-day shipping (no minimum order size) – my favorite benefit! 😀 And if you are not in a rush for your item(s), you can opt for no-rush shipping and score a free $1 credit to use for eBooks, digital music, or videos.
2. Amazon Family – If you’re a Prime member with young children, sign up for Amazon Family to snag special offers including 20% off diapers subscriptions and freebies like free Gerber formula (no longer available).
3. Unlimited instant streaming of over 40,000 movies and TV shows AND unlimited, ad-free streaming of over a million songs
4. Access to exclusive savings (like this previously available deal on a rice cooker) AND exclusive offers (like these free magazine subscription offers previously available)
5. Unlimited Photo Storage w/ Amazon Cloud Drive
6. 30-minute early access to select Amazon Lightning Deals
7. Free Kindle Book(s) every month
