Amazon is getting ready for the holiday season in a big way. The company announced today that it will be offering free shipping for all Amazon orders during the holiday season, just in time for Christmas.
This is the first time Amazon is offering such an offer, though the company had free shipping for orders over $25 last year.
If you are a Prime subscriber, Amazon says Prime Same-Day Delivery now offers more than 3 million items, which is the largest same-day selection from the company ever.
The offer will be incredibly beneficial for Amazon, and although it has more than 100 million Prime subscribers, a majority of its customers continue to be non-Prime subscribers. The free shipping will probably help boost sales quite a lot, especially since it’s the holiday season. Amazon will likely release sales numbers after the holidays, so it’ll be quite interesting to see exactly how much the offer helps the company out.
