As of 2015, Amazon.com offers free shipping for many items with a purchase of $35 or more; qualifying items note this on their product pages. The online retailer also offers a Prime plan that provides free two-day shipping on qualifying items for $99 per year.

For free shipping when purchasing items from Amazon.com, customers may add several qualifying items to their carts to reach the required $35 total and then choose free shipping as their shipping option. For items with free shipping that cost over $35, customers can use the 1-click ordering option for added convenience. Amazon Prime members may also use the 1-click ordering option to qualify for free shipping on products with Prime shipping.
