Amazon has announced that customers inside the United States will be able to take advantage of free shipping over the holidays, with no minimum purchase amount. Additionally, the firm said that Prime members in the country can shop with free same-day delivery on more than three million items on top of the free two-day delivery option available to Prime members on over 100 million items.
Discussing the perks, which have been made available starting today, Doug Herrington, Senior Vice President of North American Retail at Amazon, said:
“This holiday, customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for Christmas, including items from Amazon’s expertly curated Gift Guides across electronics, fashion, home and toys. With hundreds of millions of items available for free shipping to all Amazon customers and more than three million items available with Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery, customers can enjoy the largest selection of items that are fast and free.”
Amazon, always keen to make its Prime membership worth buying, reiterated that members in over 60 cities around the U.S. can place orders from Whole Foods Market and receive their goods within the hour. At the end of October, the firm expanded Whole Foods Market deliveries to additional cities including Albuquerque, Birmingham, Boise, Charleston, Colorado Springs, Hartford, Kansas City, Providence, Salt Lake City, and Stamford, as well as a few areas in Boston and Cincinnati. The service seems as though it could be handy if you forget any ingredients for meals being cooked for the Holidays.
