From their Press Release:
This holiday season Amazon is giving customers even more convenient and faster delivery options. Starting today, November 5, and for a limited time, all Amazon customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for the Christmas holiday. This offer applies to hundreds of millions of items – the largest free shipping selection in the country. Plus, tens of millions of Prime members can shop with FREE Same-Day Delivery, now available on more than three million items – the largest same-day selection in the U.S. including the best gifts like toys and electronics, as well as home, fashion and everything you need to enjoy the holidays. Additionally, Prime members in more than 60 cities can receive delivery in as little as an hour from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now, making holiday feast planning even easier. This is, of course, on top of the unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping that Prime members enjoy every day on more than 100 million items.
For those Amazon Prime Member who PAY for their membership? Do not worry! It could take 5-8 days to receive the order. Prime Members still get 2-day shipping. This isn’t giving away your exclusive Prime benefits, this is offering a benefit to everyone else. This is just a nice bonus that doesn’t have a membership. Actually, it is comparable to Target and Walmart that have offered free shipping with no minimum.
Those thinking about getting a Prime Membership DO get some great perks.
