Amazon raises free shipping minimum

Posted February 22, 2016

Amazon box

Amazon has raised their minimum for free shipping from $35 to $49.

If you have Prime membership, the change won't mean anything different for you since you already get free shipping.

Will you shop at less because of the increase?

    All too often we find the price on Amazon cheaper or on par with anywhere else, the free shipping through Prime makes it a no brainer. We buy a lot from Amazon as a result, my husband says "We have an Amazon box problem" because we get so many deliveries from them.

    I have already reduced the amount of shopping I do at Amazon in the last 12 to 18 months .

    So many items I need/want do not earn swagbucks anymore at Amazon and some are not "PRIME eligible".

    With price matching combined with coupons I get many things cheaper at other online stores AND earn swagbucks or other shopping bonuses/rebates.

    Sorry to hear they are increasing their minimum and hope they won't raise the price for Prime membership.

    I have to agree with you, Amomoftwo, our Prime membership saves a lot of money. Could not manage without it.
