    Glad I just placed my $25 dollar order yesterday and didn’t put it off, like I have thought about! Thanks for the update 🙂

      It was a sweet ride while it lasted. Fortunately Amazon carries a lot of products I routinely use. Isn’t usually a problem to add a couple of items to bring the total up to the minimum.

    We’ve had prime for 2 years and I think it’s totally worth it. We use Amazon Instant video a lot and I’ve read a number of books for free through their Kindle owners’ lending library.

  • Christie says:

    Still not terrible compared to other sites, but disappointing nonetheless. I was on the fence about renewing my Prime membership, I probably will now (probably exactly what they’re hoping for!)

  • Judy says:

    That’s a bummer. Thanks for letting us know!

  • Meagan says:

    Well, that’s disappointing.

  • Sally says:

    Thank you Amazon! You’ve given my a terrific reason to quit my impulse spending by rationalizing the free shipping. This change will certainly decrease your revenue from me but cause a really positive impact on my budget.

    I’m off to wipe out my wish list . Here’s to a less materialistic future for me. :).

  • Cynthia says:

    I echo Judy’s comment: thank you for letting us know. I was going to order an item for Christmas and saw that it’d require another purchase to get the free shipping. I thought it was a fluke.

    I really wish that company’s would be up front about changes like this. It’d make for a better relationship with consumers. I am disappointed with Amazon, for not offering the customer service of full (up front!) disclosure.

    With amazon prime instant watch, do you still have to pay for the shows? Like the $1.99 charge fo the walking dead, or others? We are thinking about getting it for the shipping and that purpose, but I don’t want to pay the $79 plus the $1.99 everytime we watch something.

    • It depends on the program. The newer the show, the more likely you’ll have to pay. Some seasons of various shows are free, but later, more recent seasons cost extra. It’s not necessarily a great deal if you watch a lot of TV that you want to keep up with, but if you don’t have cable and want to watch a certain cable-only show, it’s not a bad deal. However, I did just look up The Walking Dead, and every season is pay-only. That may have to do with the cable station that owns the show, though, rather than Amazon. Kind of like how some publishers allow lending of their ebooks, but others don’t.

      Some shows are free, but most (if not all) current shows still cost money. The free shows they have on there really are not great compared to paying for netflix/hulu plus.

    We have prime. Not only did I save $100 on a crib for my daughter, I saved a $65 shipping fee by being a prime member of Amazon. $165 savings on that one item over the store where she is registered for baby gifts. Well worth it. Total time shopping 10 minutes and it was delivered to my door 2 days after I ordered it.
