Normally, customers who aren't in the Amazon Prime program would need to order a minimum of $25 worth of qualifying items to get free shipping.

Although there is not a hard end date to this promotion, Amazon says that free shipping without a minimum purchase will apply to all orders that will arrive before Christmas.

This year, both Walmart and Target chose to beat Amazon on shipping, but Amazon just responded with its own shipping offer. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the company spent a record $7.3 billion getting packages to customers.

The tool will be present in the Amazon app and will allow customers to place "selected products" in their home before they make a transaction using augmented reality technology.
