Amazon Raises Shipping Charges
Shane Blume / 4 years ago
Amazon has announced that they have made slight change, recently they upped their shipping charges. These changes are only to the FREE Super Saver Shipping, all of the other services will stay the same. If you still want to use the free shipping from using FREE Super Saver Shipping from Amazon, you will now need to place an order of at least $35 up from the normal $25 minimum that it has been for over a decade.
Amazon has loads of products that normally ship for free, and even more that use the Free Super Saver Shipping program, of course you could always just use Amazon PRIME which gives users free shipping without needing to fulfil a minimum order size as well as tons of FREE stuff!!!
AmazonPRIME is not only a shipping service, in which they offer users Free two-day shipping and require no minimum order size. They are trotting along with the digital age, offering users access to books, and movies for FREE. Amazon Prime users have access to over 41,000 movies and TV Episodes from Prime Instant Videos as well as over 350,000 eBooks that users are able to borrow from their extensive library collection.
If you’re interested in signing up for Amazon Prime, in order to save yourself a few bucks or even just to use as a movie or e-book service you can expect to pay $79 per year, though if you are a student or a mum you qualify for 50% off giving you the service for just $39 for the year. If you check out this link HERE you will be able to check out the rates for Amazon Prime.
Personally I do not see an issue with requiring someone to make a slightly larger order than they were planning. Most of the time users probably meet the requirements without even thinking. If you usually have an issue meeting the requirement, you can do what I do. Create a wishlist and when you place your order and it is a few dollars short add something from your wish list.
