The mega online retailer announced it will offer free shipping on all holiday orders in time for Christmas, doing away with a minimum purchase price - even if you aren't a Prime member. Deliveries typically arrive in five to eight business days.

Of course, if you want more benefits, like free videos, music streaming, books, and guaranteed shipping speeds, you may want to try out a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime.

Amazon won't be sidelined by brick and mortar stores this holiday.

It marks the first time in recent memory Amazon has removed the minimum order requirement promotionally for its free super-saver shipping tier, which has gone up and down over the years, from a high of $49 to its current low of $25.

Amazon Prime members still get two-day shipping, but the promotional free shipping deal is only good for Amazon's 5-8 day shipping speed.

"With hundreds of millions of items available for free shipping to all Amazon customers and more than three million items available with Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery, customers can enjoy the largest selection of items that are fast and free". Target dropped its minimum purchase amount last week, offering free two-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items until December 22. Best Buy also removed its free shipping threshold for the holidays, but gives no time guarantees. Walmart, which offers free two-day shipping on orders over $35, told reporters after the Target announcement that it has no plans to change its shipping policy.
