Amazon no longer ships for free for $35 and above? Ouch. That will affect my buyingBrick & Blue wrote:Just a reminder that within the last couple of days that the minimum price for free shipping has gone up to $49.
But for the moment we still have Target holding on to $25. :)
Add at least $25 of books (in which case all other eligible items in the order also ship free), or at least $49 of all other eligible items to your Shopping Cart. Any item with "FREE Shipping" messaging on the product detail page, that is fulfilled and shipped by Amazon, is eligible and contributes to your free shipping order minimum.
I think it has nothing to do with losing money, I think it has everything to do with Prime. Plus there is this... odd... rumor that Amazon will be opening 300 B&M bookstores. So they are pushing you to buy books to get the cheaper limit.vynsane wrote:Honestly, I'm shocked it took them this long to increase it again. I can't imagine how much money they were losing on shipping differences. That said, we have prime so it's no biggie to me.
I'm still waiting for Target to increase their's to $35, but they actually lowered it like a year ago. I was going to buy something (Non-LEGO ) the other day from Target instead of Amazon, but my card has to be replaced.
Amazon will be losing A TON of my business. Only reason I ordered from them was because of a gift card and my Target card needs to be updated. I ordered over two days ago and my Target order would been delivered the 24-29th. My Amazon order still hasn't shipped! And isn't expected to until the 29th! A week just to ship something?1 Screw you Amazon.
How does that not have anything to do with losing money? Free shipping - Prime or not - particularly on large items, is killing their bottom line. There are plenty of articles out there that address that very issue.Brick & Blue wrote:I think it has nothing to do with losing money, I think it has everything to do with Prime.
I don't really see a correlation there other than the fact that the rumor and the new free shipping threshold both involve the word "book". How would book orders over $25 getting free shipping have anything to do with a rumor regarding opening bookstores?Plus there is this... odd... rumor that Amazon will be opening 300 B&M bookstores.

It's been three days now and my order still hasn't shipped. I think it's very clear that Amazon is just trying to get everyone to Prime. There is no reason an order should take a week (The estimated shipping date, not delivery date is the 29th.) for something to just ship, none at all.
