Amazon ups free shipping minimum of $49 in Prime push--From Google News
...a not so good news if you don't have Prime.
Amazon has increased its free-shipping minimum order amount for non-Prime members to $49 from $35. Book orders totaling $25 will enjoy a lower threshold and ship free.
The retailer last boosted its minimum order requirement in 2013, from $25 to $35.
The move comes as Amazon continues to face steep increases in shipping costs even as it continues to invest in expanding its delivery options and speeds for Prime members.
