If you’re planning to do your holiday shopping online, you’re in luck. Amazon announced it will offer free shipping on all holiday orders in time for Christmas.
Last year, Amazon shoppers without Prime memberships had to pay a minimum of $25 to earn free shipping, but Amazon is waiving the purchase minimum starting today.
The promotion is only available in the United States, but it will make hundreds of millions of items eligible for free shipping, rivaling the efforts of Walmart and Target to offer free shipping as well.
Although Amazon Prime Members already receive free two-day shipping year round, they too get a holiday perk this season. Prime Members will have more than 3 million items eligible for same-day delivery for the holidays.
Amazon did not yet announce a cut-off date for the promotion.
