You Can Get Free Shipping on All Amazon Orders During the Holidays
05 November 2018, 09:15 | Austin Hogan
National Amazon will offer free shipping on holiday purchases The move will make hundreds of millions of items eligible for free shipping
The guaranteed time of delivery is between 5-8 days of the time it's shipped.
Amazon's ultra-fast delivery service, Prime Now, will also offer special Black Friday deals to more than 30% of the United Kingdom population, providing an ideal selection of gifts, gadgets, fashion and Christmas treats which can be delivered in scheduled one- and two-hour delivery windows or within 60 minutes in selected postcodes.
If you are a Prime subscriber, Amazon says Prime Same-Day Delivery now offers more than 3 million items, which is the largest same-day selection from the company ever.

In a first for the company, the Seattle retailer said Monday it's dropping its $25 minimum for free shipping to non-Prime shoppers in the US. The offer covers every product category, and although no end date is listed in the Amazonpress release, orders arriving in time for Christmas suggests it will end around December 22 just like Target's offer does. In both cases, the advantage over Amazon was no paid subscription required to qualify for free shipping.

Amazon's move follows similar announcements from Walmart and Target last month. Before, the purchase threshold was $25.
The war for online holiday shoppers is already off to a roaring start, and Amazon is preparing to take the lion's share of online shopping again this season. Sales were $43.7 billion in the year-earlier period.
