Earlier Target announced free shipping to beat Amazon prime and now Amazon offered holiday shipping program. We as a consumer can be benefited this competition.
Amazon is offering free shipping with no minimum $25 purchase to all U.S. customers throughout the holiday season. Previously, only subscribers to Amazon Prime, which pay $119 per year, were eligible for free shipping.
For Amazon Prime customers, there’s still free two-day shipping and free same-day delivery on millions of items. And Prime Now offers delivery in as little as an hour in 60 cities from Whole Foods Market.
