One of my favorite Amazon features has always been the site’s Free Super Saver Shipping. Starting this week, however, the site’s policy is changing: Now, to qualify for free shipping, you need to place a minimum order of $35.
“This is the first time in more than a decade that Amazon has altered the minimum order for free shipping in the U.S.,” explains Amazon in a statement.
If you’re worried about this change putting a crimp on your holiday shopping plans, you may want to consider getting an Amazon Prime membership. For a $79 yearly fee, you can get free unlimited two-day shipping as well as access to Amazon’s collection of Prime Instant Videos, original kids’ programming and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
To learn more about Amazon Prime, visit the program’s page on the Amazon website. For more on saving money on Amazon.com, check out these 6 great Amazon shopping tips.

It was bound to happen but it may have me look local first unless I go prime which I have been thinking about anyway!
