Amazon Offers Free Shipping for Everyone Until Christmas

Amazon Prime members still get unlimited free 2-day shipping on everything. On Monday, Amazon upped the ante by expanding free shipping to all customers through the holidays, with no minimum purchase required. For instance, Amazon's non-Prime free shipping program includes hundreds of millions of items, far more than Walmart's entire online selection of over 75 million.

On Monday, Amazon returned fire, saying it will eat the shipping costs on "hundreds of millions" of items on its online bazaar during the holiday rush. The deal lasts until Amazon can no longer promise items in time for Christmas with free delivery, which typically takes five to eight business days. Before, the purchase threshold was $25. But you can enjoy the freedom of placing smaller orders without having to worry about an extra shipping fee. Walmart, arguably Amazon's biggest competitor in the United States, has kept its $35 minimum threshold for free shipping for this holiday season (so far, at least).

Prime members in the US can also shop FREE Same-Day Delivery on more than three million eligible items!

For the current quarter ending in December, Amazon said it expects revenue in the range of $66.5 billion to $72.5 billion. The company usually sets the final date toward the end of the season.

"Thanks to a healthy economy and strong consumer confidence, we believe that this holiday season will continue to reflect the growth we've seen over the past year", the group said in a statement.

Mobile shoppers, can also find where their parcels are in seconds in the Amazon App, use camera search to quickly find the items they want by pointing at an item or barcode, and never miss a deal by setting "Watch-a-Deal" alerts.
