Most certainly will @Shelbelle !.  Items that are sometimes sold by Third Parties aren't labelled as Prime items.  Prime Items will say "Prime."  Then there are third party items that are sold by companies, but Amazon fulfills and ships the products.  They aren't always "Prime" either.  Always look for Free Shipping, sold by and fulfilled by Amazon for free ship $25.00 or more with Amazon.

 

I will no longer purchase Prime Membership since when I was a Prime Member, most of the items I ordered never arrived "Prime" to me anyway.  Sometimes it took 4 - 5 days for certain orders.  The latest price hike was where I draw the line.

Re: Free shipping on Amazon no Prime needed

I am a Prime member.  Otherwise shipping to Hawaii would be ridiculous!  I watch a lot of the Amazon TV shows, too so it is well worth it to me.

I'm not a Prime member and I never have a problem loading at least $25-worth of stuff to get the free shipping. There's a distribution center not far from me and many times my things get to my front door within two to three days after I place my order so for me paying for a Prime membership is not worth the cost.


But doesn't the $25 worth of stuff in order to receive free shipping be from 1 vendor?  I've purchased items from Amazon that have been over $25 but from multiple vendors.  Not one item was $25.

Re: Free shipping on Amazon no Prime needed

I put an order together once or twice a month with Amazon and shipping is free. I dont have Prime, not worth it to me. I get my orders usually within three days. Very satisfied.

No, but it has to all be on the same order.  All items eligible for free shipping over $25 will say so.  

 

On their item page it will give you the delivery date too, like "Free delivery Wednesday, October 19 if you spend $25 on items shipped by Amazon".
