Just a heads up for non-prime members @ Amazon:

Amazon today introduced a free shipping for "small and light" products that weight under 8 ounces, smaller than 9x6x2 inches, and cost less than $10.

The low-cost fulfillment service means no minimum order is required and customers do not need to be enrolled in Amazon Prime to take advantage of it.

Shipping will take five to seven days instead of the two days Amazon offers to Prime members.

The new program is officially called "Fulfillment by Amazon Small and Light."
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Best move by Amazon in recent times. No doubt it will help boost their sales to non prime customers.

Because most things you buy weigh under 8 ounces and cost less than $10? And it isn't two day shipping, up to 8 days. Great for an occasional item not a replacement for Prime, one of the best values out there if you actually spend money.

Was thinking the same thing. This contradicts with their add-on items. Curious how this will pan out.
