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!
Today Walmart announced changes to the way they handle free shipping! There are a few different rules for this new policy, so let's dig right in.
Walmart will now offer free shipping on orders over $35. Over 2 million items across their website will be eligible for free 2-day shipping on orders over $35. If your item isn't eligible for free 2-day shipping, you'll still get free 3-5 day shipping on orders meeting the $35 minimum.
Finally, if your order has eligible 2-day shipping items, but is less than $35, you can pay $5.99 for 2-day shipping. Of course, you'll still be able to choose free in-store pickup if you'd rather get your purchases that way.
Items that are eligible for free 2-day shipping span tons of different categories, from baby and pets to household essentials, clothing, and beauty to name a few. You can use filters to search for only these items when shopping at Walmart.
This new policy means that Walmart's ShippingPass program has ended. All current ShippingPass members will receive a refund on their membership.
Walmart's updated shipping policy could give them an edge over Amazon. Amazon's free shipping threshold used to be $25, but back in 2013 they raised it to $35, and then again to $49 in 2016 -- effectively pushing customers towards an Amazon Prime membership. We're hoping this change motivates Amazon to up the ante a bit. As we always say, when stores try to outdo their competition, customers usually win.
