The e-commerce giant used to offer free shipping for orders $35 and up, then switched it to $49, and now reverted back to the $35 threshold.
This is clearly in response to Walmart’s push to compete on the e-commerce front and offer free two-day shipping on orders $35+. Walmart still has the shipping edge over Amazon since they’ll ship it out in two days while Amazon only promises 5-8 business day shipping.
All this doesn’t affect Prime members who get free two-day shipping with no minimum at all.
