Amazon Free Shipping on Small Items

The 1 Unexpected Way to Get Free Amazon Shipping

Ordering new mascara or something small? You no longer have to wait till your cart reaches $35 to qualify for free shipping, since Amazon is starting a new program that will ship small items for free.

The program, called "Fulfillment by Amazon Small and Light," will ship any item under 8 oz. for free, without requiring a minimum order or Amazon Prime. It won't ship in two days like Amazon Prime subscribers are used to but will be delivered within four to eight business days.

Thousands of products are eligible under this new program, which is great news for anyone who shops on a budget on Amazon. "Customers love that even if it's a $5 item, shipping is free for everybody, Prime member or not," said Neil Ackerman, a senior manager at Amazon to CNET.

It might also encourage customers to join Amazon Prime . . . or just keep using their friends' membership if they really need something delivered fast.
