It’s true — if you want free shipping from Amazon now, you’ll have to spent at least $35, up from $25.  Just in time for holiday shopping! Amazon says it implemented the change on Monday.  Hope you have a bunch of $10 items on your wish list that you can use to beef up your next order.

Here is Amazon’s statement:

Amazon’s minimum order size for free shipping has changed to $35. This is the first time in more than a decade that Amazon has altered the minimum order for free shipping in the US. During that time, we have expanded free shipping selection by millions of items across all 40 product categories. Look for “FREE Shipping” on product pages to discover eligible items.

Millions of Amazon customers have already made the choice of faster shipping by becoming Amazon Prime members. Prime includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping, with no minimum order size, on more than 15 million items, as well as unlimited streaming of over 41,000 movies and TV episodes through Prime Instant Video and access to over 350,000 books to borrow through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. The service is so popular that more than a year ago we began shipping more items with Prime than with free shipping. Click here to start a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime.

Whichever shipping speed you choose, thank you for shopping at Amazon.com.”
