Amazon Increasing the Minimum Purchase Amount Required for Free Super Saver Shipping

Amazon

Minimum Free Shipping Increase: Amazon has just increased the purchase amount required to get Free Shipping from $25 to $35. The new $35 minimum is the first increase in over a decade. According to Amazon, they have added a number of new items that qualify for free shipping.

Screw you Amazon! I like to order My items in $25 increments as I get money throughout the month. This will throw off My budget.

If a member of your household or a coworker has Amazon Prime, they can share their free two day shipping benefit with you.

Although prices for some items might be adjusted.

$80 is pretty steep for Amazon Prime.

Yeah but you have to have a edu address. They verify you with that edu address.

The title is supposed to say: Amazon Free Shipping Increase
If a Mod sees this post, please edit the title, thanks.

I don't mind this so much because I have Prime, but it's really annoying that they made a lot of the low value stuff Add-On items, so I can't even use Prime for small things unless I bundle a bunch of stuff. My shopping on Amazon is as needed, and I hate having to wait and bundle stuff. I've resorted to just paying slightly higher prices at local places now for those small purchases.
