As we gear up for the holidays, we all ask ourselves, “How are we going to shop for everyone on our list?” Then we remember the best invention of all: Amazon.
Amazon makes it easy to fill up your shopping cart with gifts for all your family and friends, and press “Buy” in one simple swoop—without even having to leave your house.
The only thing that’s annoying about buying anything online is the shipping costs. Sometimes shipping costs the same if not more than the actual item you’re buying!
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you typically get free two-day shipping on all eligible items. And if you’re not, there’s a $25-$45 minimum before the free shipping kicks in.
But now, Amazon is giving everyone a pretty sweet offer. In preparation for the holidays, starting today, November 5, Amazon is doing away with shipping costs for hundreds of millions of items. And that’s for everyone, even if you’re not a Prime member.
Don’t worry, that membership still offers its perks. For Prime members, Amazon is ensuring that more than 3 million items will become available for same-day delivery during the holiday season—which makes things really convenient for last-minute shoppers (guilty!).
