You Can Get Free Shipping on All Amazon Orders During the Holidays

This year, both Walmart and Target made a decision to beat Amazon on shipping, but Amazon just responded with its own shipping offer.

It intensifies the war for online customers this holiday, and comes after Target announced free two-day shipping for all customers for the holiday.

Well, Amazon has struck back; now it too is offering free shipping with no minimum to all customers, according to Reuters.

The online retailer is waiving the purchase minimum purchase requirement for free shipping starting Monday. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the company spent a record $7.3 billion getting packages to customers. It's hard not to say that Amazon's the one driving this bus, since the company has millions of people paying the company a tidy sum each year for their own version of free shipping (among other services, such as streaming video and music).

The Amazon logo is displayed on screen of a mobile photo in a stock photo. As usual, there will also be thousands of "Lightning Deals" - products available at a discount, in limited quantities, for a short period of time - with new deals becoming available as often as every five minutes.

The company said during its most recent annual report that it expected shipping costs "to continue to increase to the extent our customers accept and use our shipping offers at an increasing rate, we reduce shipping rates, we use more expensive shipping methods, and we offer additional services". Retail sales this holiday season are expected to rise by as much as 4.8 percent in 2018, according to the National Retail Federation, as the US economy continues to strengthen.

Last month, Walmart added free two-day shipping for Marketplace items to its previous offer of free two-day shipping for purchases over $35. 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.
