We're always striving to be the best that we can be, which means that there are even more updates to come. We're already working behind-the-scenes to bring you the best Black Friday experience yet this fall. We'll keep you in the loop as new features are added. The future is looking bright, and we're glad you're here with us!
If you're following us on Facebook, you may have already seen that Amazon quietly dropped their free shipping threshold to $25! From now on, shoppers will get Free Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25. Prime One-Day Delivery will still be eligible on orders over $35.
No doubt this is just the next chapter in the war between Amazon and Walmart. After Walmart introduced their in-store pickup discount, they've consistently had the better final price on items Amazon tried to match. By lowering their free shipping threshold, Amazon has pulled the tug-of-war rope back over to their side. Especially when considering Black Friday 2017, free shipping is a huge factor. Saving time during the holidays is often more valuable to a shopper than saving a dollar or two.
For now, the question is up to the consumers. Would you rather shop at Walmart, potentially getting an in-store pickup discount, and go to the store to get your item? Or would you rather potentially pay a little more at Amazon to get free shipping to your home?
Normally we would include Target in our speculation of the shopping world, but considering the fact that they just raised their free shipping threshold to $35, our only point is this: make sure you have a Target REDcard. Read more about that here.
We're positive that this isn't the last we've seen of the battle between Amazon and Walmart. Will Jet.com get involved? Will Amazon open more brick-and-mortar locations or lower the price of their Prime memberships? Will Walmart finally introduce a program that can compete with Amazon Prime? We'll be sure to keep you updated. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
On May 7th, Target will be raising their free shipping threshold from $25 to $35. This puts them on par with Amazon and Walmart, although Target's shipping threshold is moving in the opposite direction as their competitors'. Are you bummed? Not so fast!
In case you haven't heard, Target has this great thing called the REDcard. The Target REdcard comes in two different options: a credit card, and a free debit card that links directly to your bank account. Having a Target REDcard gets you free shipping no minimum when you order online, plus you'll get 5% off your purchases when you use it! Did we mention it's free?
But wait -- there's more! Starting Sunday May 7th, Target will offer a coupon for 10% off your shopping trip when you sign up for a new REDcard! It will be valid on almost everything -- the only exclusions are gift cards, prepaid cards, LEGO, Vitamix, Weber, Dyson, DSLR cameras and lenses, Google products, Apple, Sonos, Bose, GoPro, alcohol, Tylenol, CVS pharmacy, clinic, Target Optical, Portrait Studio and Target Mobile purchases. Remember, if you're interested in the coupon, make sure you wait til Sunday to sign up! The promotion for new REDcard customers will run through May 20th.
If you don't want a free Target REDcard, you can still shop online and choose free in-store pickup for orders under $35. However, we highly recommend it. That extra 5% discount can add up to some great savings, especially when you're purchasing big-ticket items like Black Friday TV doorbusters.
How does this affect Target's Black Friday 2017 plans? They've offered free shipping no minimum during the holidays for the pastthreeyears, so we have a feeling that we'll see that again this holiday season. We'll be sure to keep you updated!
Beginning April 19th, Walmart will be offering discounts on select in-store pickup orders. The new Pickup Discount will start out with 10,000 items, and they plan on extending it to over 1,000,000 popular products by the end of June. The discount will only be applied to eligible online-only items, and the discount amount varies by item.

We have 238 days to go until Black Friday 2017, but Home Depot decided they wanted to get in on the action early with their Spring Black Friday Sale!
If you're a Black Friday pro, then you know that usually "early Black Friday sales" are full of gimmicks and lukewarm deals. However, Home Depot's sale features truly hot prices on timely items that you might need for Spring.
This sale is running from today through April 9th, with most items available both in-store and online. We've posted the 32-page Home Depot Spring Black Friday sale ad scan for you to peruse! Remember that you can choose free in-store pickup to save on shipping costs. Otherwise, shipping is free on orders over $45.
Breaking news! Amazon dropped their free shipping threshold to $35 today, likely because of Walmart doing the same thing a few weeks ago. There isn't an official press release yet but we'll be sure to keep you updated.
If you're not an Amazon Prime member, you'll now get Free Super Saver Shipping on orders over $35. Of course, Amazon Prime members will still get free 2-day shipping among a ton of other benefits. You can click here for a free 30-day trial.
There are still a few differences between the two retail giants' shipping policies. At Walmart, you'll get free 2-day shipping on most orders over $35 or you can pay a fixed $5.99 flat-rate fee for 2-day shipping on orders less than $35. At Amazon, orders over $35 take longer to ship. You have to pay $99 a year or $10.99 per month to get that free 2-day shipping --- but there's no minimum purchase for Prime Members as long as the item is Prime eligible.
We're hoping that Walmart and Amazon continue their tug-of-war. Maybe we'll even get the average free shipping threshold down to $25 again!
The Nintendo Switch is the hottest item on the market right now because for one, they're really cool, and for two, they're IMPOSSIBLE to find. It's Nintendo's newest console and there's never been anything else like it. You can play it on your TV or take it with you on the go as a portable system. Plus, we're throwing in a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It's already received glowing reviews from PCMag, IGN, Metacritic, and thousands of fans. It's the most popular game of the year so far, and even if you're not a longtime Legend of Zelda fan, you're sure to love the open landscape and fascinating storyline.
Simply enter here by 4:59PM CT on Mario Day (3/10) for your chance to win the hottest gadgets on the market right now. Good luck!
