Amazon raises minimum spend for free shipping to $49
For years, the minimum spend required was $25, which was then raised to $35 in 2013 and now it has gone up another $14, Post & Parcel Info reports.
For book orders the free shipping threshold remains at $25.
Amazon has not issued an official statement about upping the free shipping threshold – but the move is expected to make its Prime service (annual U.S. subscription $99) even more attractive. ■
