    What is going on?! They flip flopped with Target.

  2. Kitty

    That’s funny that Target just changed it the other way from 25 to 35 lol

    • Laura

      I won’t order from target with that threshold

    • Ash23

      Target free shipping is still showing at $25

  3. Katie D.

    They are going after Target for sure!

  4. Cara

    Your turn Wal-Mart, lol

  5. april

    That is awesome news. We recently cut prime because our budget was just too tight.

  6. Laura

    Love a healthy competition!!

    • Wren

      Exactly!! Imagine if our health care system worked the same way! 💰

    I think Wal-Mart & Target still have better shipping. With Wal-Mart you get free 2 day shipping on orders of $35 and with Target, I usually get my items in less than a week. Even if the shipping is free, I have to wait forever to get my items from Amazon. I would still pay a little more to get my items faster from Wal-Mart & Target.

      I couldn’t agree more. Last time I ordered from Amazon it took over a week to get the product I purchased. It was preparing for week. When I finally received it I noticed it was shipped from a town that’s only 50 miles away.

    Good! Finally a break. I cut off prime because I wasn’t watching any of the shows on there or using any of the other features….and I make 6 or less prime orders per year, so it didn’t make sense to keep paying 11$+/month for a membership that I didn’t even utilize most months. If you guys remember, it actually used to be 25$ on amazon till they upped it to 30, then to 35. Glad they decided to change it back.

  11. Katie

    Yay! I haven’t made any orders since my Prime ended because the threshold was just a little too high for me. I miss my Amazon.

  12. Melissa

    I thought amazon shipping was free over $49??

    I think everyone should have a Target debit card. I seriously don’t know why people wouldn’t. Free shipping, it comes right out of your account unlike paying a credit card a month down the road, and 5% off. I saw they increased their free ship threshold, but it doesn’t even phase me since I have a red card and didn’t need to pay anything for it, unlike an Amazon subscription.

      Didn’t Target get hacked a little while ago And people’s information was stolen. I remember getting stuff in the mail about it.

      • Jess

        Many companies get hacked and compromise customer information. At least Target admitted it and notified their customers to be on the look out! That has big points in my book!

    • Amy

      I have a redcard debit card and don’t use it. It always takes 4-5 days before the money comes out of my account. Not worth it.

      • Amy

        *target debit card

        Clearly I can’t do 2 things at once.

      • Centerofattn315

        5%off every purchase and 1%donated to a school of your choice and free shipping on any order — totally worth it in my book

        • Michael

          Target did away with the 1% to schools some time ago when they reached their goal of giving $1,000,000,000 to schools. I think it was toward the end of 2015.

    • Laura

      Most people don’t want it linked to their account.

      • Centerofattn315

        So get a target credit card – it doesn’t have to be a debit

  14. Ktenny

    Lol that pic used to look like my doorstep cuz of my Amazon addiction…I’ve been using Walmart lately cuz it’s two day shipping now and the food is cheap

  15. peepslob

    I hope this stays that way at least for the rest of the year!!!!!

  16. Lucinda

    I have an under armour code for $40 off $100 to trade. I’d like $10 off $10 jcp, kohls cash, or $10 off any purchase llbean.

  17. Sara

    Target has free shipping with the red card I love it. Mad at Amazon I rarely buy from there anymore, since they raised the free shipping threshold. At $25 I might shop there again.

  18. Mel

    Great news! Thanks for the heads up Collin. Glad to see I’m not the only human in the US that doesn’t have Prime 😜

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Mel! 😉

    • Ali

      I didn’t renew mine for three months now. Nothing changed, except I shop less and watch less tv. I think my favorite perk was their movie app, miss some shows, but good to take a break. When I had prime I was still annoyed with having to gather $25 minimum when the item I wanted was an add-on, and pantry thing didn’t have free shipping. Glad to see that amazon still has some competition.
