Amazon is offering free shipping for all customers for a limited time this holiday, starting November 5.

Beginning today, Amazon is offering free shipping without a minimum purchase amount requirement to all USA customers.

There is no minimum purchase price.

Bottom line: Buy one of over 100 million items you want on Amazon and get free shipping without having to spend $25 now up until Christmas. You won't need a club membership, and you won't have to meet a minimum order to get free shipping when you shop online at Target, which might add up to huge savings. Amazon Day (not to be confused with Amazon Prime Day) is now available to a selected group of shoppers in the United States, giving them the option to pick a specific day of the week to receive deliveries.

Like a year ago, more of Amazon's Echo smart speakers will no doubt feature in its Black Friday sale, which will see thousands of deals across consumer electronics.

It's official - the countdown to Black Friday is now on with Amazon UK confirming it will run offers from Friday 16 November 2018 until 25 November 2018. According to Amazon, it's the largest selection of items that ship free in the country; millions of products are up for the deal. The deal lasts until Amazon can no longer promise items in time for Christmas with free delivery, which typically takes five to eight business days. Amazon spent more than $7 billion on shipping in the fourth quarter past year, before subtracting the shipping fees it collects from customers.

Prime Now will also offer special Black Friday deals to more than 30% of the United Kingdom population which can be delivered in scheduled one and two-hour delivery windows or within 60 minutes in selected postcodes.
