Amazon announces FREE SHIPPING for all for Christmas!

This weekend I started a list of retailers that were offering holiday shipping deals to rival Amazon.  But Amazon will not be outdone apparently!

Amazon has announced that starting Monday, November 5th, EVERYONE gets FREE SHIPPING!

General shipping terms mean that Prime members already get free 2-day shipping on all eligible orders with no minimum required but non-Prime shoppers must spend at least $25 to get free standard shipping.  But not for the Christmas season this year!

Starting today, Non-Prime members can get free standard shipping!  No minimum purchase required.

And end date has not be announced but it was stated that this is free shipping on “orders guaranteed by Christmas”.  Amazon always sets a day (around the 16-17th of December or so) when they stop guaranteeing standard shipping by Christmas.  So when that date arrives, the free shipping offer is over.  But that still gives you well over a month to shop with FREE shipping!

It is important to note that Prime members still get the 2-day shipping perk.  

Prime members also get an additional perk this season.  Amazon is making more than three million items eligible for same-day delivery for the holidays just for Prime members!

So, what are you waiting for?  Go shop!
