National Amazon will offer free shipping on holiday purchases The move will make hundreds of millions of items eligible for free shipping

Amazon will offer free shipping on holiday purchases

There's a feature called AR View, for example - a new augmented reality feature in the Amazon app that allows customers to view products in situ before they purchase. This year, both Walmart and Target made a decision to beat Amazon on shipping, but Amazon just responded with its own shipping offer.

"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", said Doug Herrington, Senior Vice President of North American Retail at Amazon.

It may be because Amazon felt the need to compete with big box stores who are also offered free shipping promotions. The offer covers every product category, and although no end date is listed in the Amazon press release, orders arriving in time for Christmas suggests it will end around December 22 just like Target's offer does.

It marks the first time Amazon has removed the minimum order requirement for its free super-saver shipping tier.




Amazon isn't the only merchant slashing shipping fees. It's $49 free shipping threshold didn't last long after Walmart unveiled its policy of free two-day shipping with every order $35 or more in January 2017.

"Amazon's move to give free shipping for all this holiday supports [the] thesis that retailers are catching up on Amazon with supply chain speed, fulfillment and delivery", Konik wrote. Ultimately it's the customers who benefit from this as we now have all three stores shipping us orders for free for the next couple of months.
