If you're lacking in the Prime membership department, this year you won't have to sigh wistfully whilst looking in the windows of Amazon's free shipping department. Pair the shipping offer with some choice Thrifter deals and you'll have yourself a recipe for success this holiday season.
Although there is not a hard end date to this promotion, Amazon says that free shipping without a minimum purchase will apply to all orders that will arrive before Christmas. Normally, free two-day shipping is something only Prime subscribers get, and a Prime subscription can cost a fair amount of money. For instance, Amazon's non-Prime free shipping program includes hundreds of millions of items, far more than Walmart's entire online selection of over 75 million. That leaves Walmart as one of the only remaining e-commerce giants requiring a purchase minimum for free two-day shipping.
T3 has approached Amazon UK to find out whether the free shipping promotion will be coming to our shores, and will update this article as soon as we hear back.

Lest you think Amazon's just giving perks to everyone but the people who support the site regularly, think again: Prime members can shop same-day shipping on even more items-more three million, to be specific.
