Amazon offering free holiday shipping to everyone

  • Amazon will offer free shipping on holiday purchases

In a first for the company, the Seattle retailer said Monday it's dropping its $25 minimum for free shipping to non-Prime shoppers in the US. That means you'll start to see Black Friday deals on Amazon a whole week before the big day itself, which falls on November 23 this year.

It's offering free shipping on all holiday orders arriving in time for Christmas.

During the period, there will also be "Deals of the Day" every day, as well as "Lightning Deals" - products available at a discount, in limited quantities, for a short period of time. New for this Black Friday, Amazon Fashion has launched its "try before you buy" service, Prime Wardrobe, which aims to make shopping for fashion more convenient than ever. Prime account holders will receive free same-day delivery instead of two-day shipping on eligible items. Shoppers who aren't Prime members will get slower shipping, though, which can take five to eight days. Hundreds of millions of items will therefore become eligible for free shipping.

Prime subscribers will also be able to take advantage of an all-new "try before you buy" service known as Prime Wardrobe, which is created to make online shopping for clothes more convenient.

Workers prepare customer orders for dispatch as they work around goods stored inside an Amazon.co.uk fulfillment centre in Peterborough, central England, on November 15, 2017.

Last month, Walmart added free two-day shipping for Marketplace items to its previous offer of free two-day shipping for purchases over $35. And even beyond groceries, Prime members can use Prime Now to get one- and two-hour delivery on tens of thousands of items across dozens of categories in 30 major cities, flawless for last minute parties, gifts or travel.

Amazon last month touted improvements in efficiency, which could help it offset costs from more free deliveries.
