Amazon made a change...

I'm a lover of Amazon. I spend far too much money with them, but I can order things all at once that would take most of day driving around town to locate... and cost more in the brick store to boot.

Seems they changed their free shipping threshold from $25 to $35.

I don't blame them at all - I placed LOTS of orders that were in the $26-28 range, padding small orders with little things from the "it'd be nice" list to get over the limit. Even with the rates I'm sure they have arranged with their carriers, I wondered how they were making any money on shipping a several-pound box halfway across the country.

So ... small change, might slightly change my ordering habits, or it might get me to cough up the money for Prime for a year.

I've been prime for a few years now, and happy with it. I shop Amazon a lot, and the no-charge movies are a plus too.

Huh, looks like they JUST changed it too: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=527692

We sprung for Prime back at the beginning of the month cause Hubby decided he wanted the streaming video, glad we did now!

I LOVE Prime! I actually get the student rate for prime while I'm in college, but the savings and convenience ensures that I will pay full price for it after I graduate. Amazon is smart!

Prime is well worth it, particularly if you're a frequent Amazon shopper.

amazon prime is worth every penny as far as I'm concerned. Free 2 day shipping on many items, and it pays for itself with Christmas shopping.
