Free shipping usually comes with a catch and, generally speaking, that catch is a minimum order total. With Amazon, that total has changed a few times. For a while, it was around $49, which made it a bit difficult to take advantage of the program.
Then, to keep up with the competition, the company dropped that down to a much more reasonable $35, where it was a while back. Now, Amazon has quietly dropped that total even further to just $25.
As you can see on Amazon’s customer service pages, the minimum order total needed for free shipping is now just $25. This applies for all orders, which means you don’t need Amazon’s yearly Prime plan to save on shipping costs. Of course, this is simply standard shipping, which means orders will take a few days to arrive at your door, but it’s still a great deal.
