Amazon Announces Free Shipping for Holidays — No Prime Membership Needed

Amazon is the latest e-commerce retailer to offer free shipping on all pre-holiday purchases, regardless of membership status.

Amazon typically offers free two-day shipping to Prime members, who pay $119 for the privilege. Otherwise, shoppers must hit a $25 purchase minimum to access free shipping.

“All Amazon customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for the Christmas holiday,” the company announced on its website.

It also noted that eligible items typically ship in five to eight days.

The promotion started Nov. 5 and is available “for a limited time.”

Amazon’s offer is likely in response to increasing competition from other retailers that hope to lure customers to their e-commerce options.

Target announced Oct. 23 that it would offer free two-day shipping to all online shoppers without requiring a minimum order size. That promotion began Nov. 1 and will continue through Dec. 22. Target typically has a $35 minimum order requirement to access free shipping.

Meanwhile, Walmart announced the same day that it’s expanding its free two-day shipping option to Marketplace items sold by third parties.

“In the coming months, you will see millions of additional items with the two-day free shipping label,” the company announced. Walmart.com will still require a $35 minimum order for free two-day shipping.

Customers in search of the best shipping deal for their online holiday shopping should watch the fine print for deadlines and restrictions that could delay delivery of those gifts

One Last Free-Shipping Hurrah?

These free shipping offers are enticing for customers, but retailers may not be so generous next holiday season.

The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a 9% to 12% increase for the parcel select shipping service used by Amazon for the last leg of delivery. FedEx also announced that ground and home delivery shipping rates will increase by an average of 4.9%.

These increases don’t go into effect until January 2019. But they surely have major e-commerce players preparing to adjust their shipping strategies or make up for the increase in other ways — potentially by increasing prices.

Everything You Need to Know About Walmart Black Friday Deals (2018)

Of the top Black Friday retailers that put out flyers every year, Walmart has always been a leader in the brick-and-mortar category.

The mega-store is known for offering deals on products in almost every category, from smart TVs to children’s toys. As such, it has become a one-stop destination for many savvy shoppers.

Walmart Black Friday Hours

11/22 – Thanksgiving Day – 6 PM to 12 AM

11/23 -Black Friday – 6 AM

Store hours may vary by state.

Walmart Black Friday Deals

This year, Walmart is making it even easier for buyers to snap up great deals by expanding its online retail offerings. Available as of November 1, shoppers can access a whole host of great deals, (which were made available to users with an “Early Access Pass” earlier this week).

These discounted items, which will be available from now up to Black Friday, are listed at up to 40 percent off regular prices. These deals also give us an idea of the kinds of sales to expect on Black Friday itself.

Featured items include:

  • 82-inch Samsung 4K Ultra HD Smart QLED TV, on sale for $1,102 off regular price (you read that right)
  • 64GB iPhone X with Free $55 Airtime, listed with a $55 discount

Anyone who has shopped at Walmart during Black Friday before knows that it usually brings forward incredible deals on TVs, cell phones from Samsung and Apple, laptops from HP, gaming consoles, and other home electronics. The retailer’s ad from last year delivered an impressive 32 pages of discounted products.

The company also has a habit of matching whatever the other major retailers offer; for example, Walmart will be offering free two-day shipping for orders of $35 or more, just like Target announced last month.

This goes for its sale prices as well as its offers on shipping and returns.

It’s unlikely that any other store will be able to match Walmart’s prices on smartphones, and the store has historically offered the cheapest large 4K TVs from notable retailers. If either is on your wish list this year, be sure to keep your eyes on Walmart as the next few weeks progress.

Doors open for the Black Friday weekend sale at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, November 22, though you can shop the entire day online, too.

Find Cheaper International Travel Fares Using This Decades-Old Loophole

Airlines are not allowed to charter flights between two countries if they are not already based out of either of those countries.

That’s why you won’t find Delta selling trips between Canada and France, or Malaysia Airlines flying between the U.S. and England.

Except, as the Wall Street Journal notes, when a 1944 treaty allows it. “Some airlines are allowed to carry customers between two non-native countries, usually when a fuel stop is involved,” writes Scott McCartney, the Journal’s Middle Seat columnist. “It’s called the fifth freedom. Established with an international treaty in 1944, the nine aviation freedoms lay out what commercial airlines can and can’t do throughout the world.”

The other aviation freedoms outlined in the treaty deal with things like the right to fly over one country on the way to another, while the fifth allows a carrier to “sell tickets on standalone city-to-city routes in countries that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to operate in,” as long as it’s along a route that originates or ends in the airline’s home country, writes Airfare Watchdog.

And that means you might be able to find a bargain on a new carrier:

In many cases, these carriers offer better products, departure times, and overall service than their U.S. based competitors on these routes.

Especially in instances where you can choose an airline like Singapore or Cathay Pacific who regularly top the best airline awards over a local carrier’s offering.

Hawaii to Japan is a common route on these flights, though there are a lot of options, as Airfare Watchdog highlights. You could take a flight from Los Angeles to London or Tokyo operated by Air New Zealand, for example, or from New York to Milan or Athens via Emirates.

Singapore Airlines offers a “daily trip from JFK to Frankfurt to Singapore and back,” per the Journal. Singapore is the only airline that offers a flight from Texas to northern England.

You can find the flights on sites like Airfare Watchdog or by checking on the carriers’ websites, including Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Korean Air, and Singapore Airlines.
