Amazon Changes Free Shipping Limit From $25 to $35

Amazon has announced changes in its minimum order size for free shipping. The limit has been boosted from $25 to $35 but the company also recommends becoming a Prime member to get free shipping and all the other benefits that goes with it. Honestly, if you shop on Amazon as much as I do, the Prime membership really is the way to go. Here's the full press release:

Amazon's minimum order size for free shipping has changed to $35. This is the first time in more than a decade that Amazon has altered the minimum order for free shipping in the US. During that time, we have expanded free shipping selection by millions of items across all 40 product categories. Look for "FREE Shipping" on product pages to discover eligible items.

Millions of Amazon customers have already made the choice of faster shipping by becoming Amazon Prime members. Prime includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping, with no minimum order size, on more than 15 million items, as well as unlimited streaming of over 41,000 movies and TV episodes through Prime Instant Video and access to over 350,000 books to borrow through the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. The service is so popular that more than a year ago we began shipping more items with Prime than with free shipping. Click here to start a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime.
