If you buy regularly from Amazon, you'll know that shipping fees are something that can wipe out or drastically reduce any savings you may have gained from the lower prices offered on the site. Fortunately, there are ways to get free shipping on your purchases from Amazon that can save you a lot of money. Here we'll discuss the two main options -

Option 1: Super Saver Shipping

Amazon offers free Super Saver Shipping on certain eligible products. To take advantage of this offer, all you have to do is buy a minimum of $25 worth of these products, which should specifically be indicated as being eligible for this shipping option.

Note that the items must be shipped to a single US address in order to be eligible for the offer; if your order includes ineligible products, these products will be charged the applicable shipping fees. Super Saver Shipping orders will arrive within five to eight business days, and can be sent to all fifty US states as well as APO/FPO addresses that have a US zip code.

Option 2: Amazon Prime Membership

You can also avail of free two-day shipping on an unlimited basis by signing up for an Amazon Prime membership. Prime membership will allow you to enjoy free shipping on a wide selection of eligible products with no minimum purchase required, although you can also opt for one-day shipping at a reduced rate.

Note that one-day and two-day shipping benefits are eligible only for locations within the continental US but not including Alaska and Hawaii; for these states as well as PO boxes, APO/FPO addresses and US territories members may avail of free Standard shipping on qualified products subject to terms and conditions.

New members can sign up for a one-month free trial membership, after which they will be charged a yearly fee to remain a member unless they opt out. You can also enroll for the trial membership by choosing the Free Two Day Shipping option when you check out your latest purchase. Your credit card won't be charged for the first year's membership fee until the end of the trial period. If you do a lot of shopping on Amazon, then you may want to invest in Amazon Prime membership, since Super Saver Shipping is only available on a relatively limited number of products.

Which Seat Should I Choose?

Fortunately, unlike Vanessa Black's daily seating choices, this one is fairly simple. If you're a "now and then" Amazon shopper, option one is your friend. If you're a regular Amazon visitor, prime membership is definitely worth considering. Assess your needs and make a decision to save today….
