Amazon increases free shipping minimum

Created: 10/24/2013 6:48 AM WHEC.com

Ahead of the holiday shopping season, on-line retailer, Amazon is raising its free shipping minimum to $35. The change comes after a decade of free shipping for orders of $25 on Amazon.com.
 
Even with the increase, Amazon’s minimum for free shipping is considered to be in the mid-range among its major competitors. Earlier this year, the company had warned that its shipping costs might increase during the holiday season.
 
For those Amazon customers who pay $79 a year for prime membership, there is no minimum for free shipping.
