Amazon will give people free shipping during the 2018 holiday season. You’ll get all of your orders before Christmas, even if you’re aren’t a Prime member (via CNBC).
2018 Holiday Season
Previously, in order to get free shipping you had to have an order of at least US$25. But starting today, Amazon will waive that price minimum for everyone. If you’re a Prime member you’ll get a new perk: Over 3 million products are available for same-day shipping.
Retailers can expect a robust holiday shopping spree this year. Sales in November and December — excluding automobiles, gasoline and restaurants — are expected to increase between 4.3 and 4.8 percent over 2017 for a total of $717.45 billion to $720.89 billion, according to figures from the National Retail Federation.
