Amazon Offering Shipping and Delivery Perks this Holiday Season


With the holiday shopping season just around the corner, purchasing holiday gifts has become even easier. For a limited time, when you shop on Amazon.com, shipping is free with no minimum purchase. This free shipping offer includes "hundreds of millions of items including every product category" for products that will arrive by the Christmas holiday. Items ship within 5 – 8 days.

If you are a Prime member, Amazon holiday shopping is faster with free same day delivery for over three million items: "Place an order in the morning and receive eligible same-day orders before bedtime that very same day, seven days a week – even Sunday." Prime members also have free two-day shipping with no minimum purchase on 100 million items. Its literally a holiday shopper's extravaganza as stated by Doug Herrington, Senior Vice President of North American Retail at Amazon: “This holiday, customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for Christmas, including items from Amazon’s expertly curated Gift Guides across electronics, fashion, home and toys.”

Shopping for a holiday dinner or other event? Receive items from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now in as little as an hour with home delivery (available in 60 cities) or thirty minutes with grocery pickup in select cities across the US. Prime members also receive deep discounts and an additional 10 percent off hundreds of sale items at Whole Foods Market. Besides groceries, Prime Now members can also receive "one- and two-hour delivery on tens of thousands of items across dozens of categories in 30 major cities, perfect for last minute parties, gifts or travel."
