How to Get Free Delivery on Amazon?


Customers are becoming habituated to free shipping. The reason for this is the popularity of packages like Amazon Prime. When Amazon offers free delivery as part of a special promotion to all of its customers, how can you receive Amazon delivery for free when that deal isn’t available?

The first and most obvious option to get free shipping on all Amazon purchases is to sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You get free next-day delivery on orders and a slew of other benefits. That trial is valid for 30 days, and as long as you remember to cancel before it expires, you will not be charged anything.

How to Get Free Amazon Delivery Without Having Prime?

It’s quite aggravating when you’ve looked far and wide for the best deal on the internet, but the delivery charges take you beyond your budget.

To qualify for free standard shipping (arrives in 3-5 business days) on Amazon, you must spend at least £20/$25 on items or purchase at least £10 worth of eligible books. So you can spend £16/$20 on products and pay up to £4.99/$5 for delivery, totaling £20/$25, or you can spend £20/$25 on goods and receive free delivery, still totaling £20/$25.

We’d rather have the latter. But, to hit the £25/$25 mark, you’ll need a “filler item” — something inexpensive that will be of some service to you. While you will still have to pay £20/$25 in total, you will receive the same amount of things in return. And you can always sell or give away any unwanted stuff.

The only challenge here is locating the things that will bring your cart total down to the bare minimum – and, more particularly, those at the proper price that is also Free Shipping compatible. Some services are available to assist.

Get Free Shipping on Lightweight Items

Amazon discreetly revealed that it would begin offering free shipping on hundreds of small, lightweight items such as cosmetics, in-ear headphones, and mobile phone accessories. There is no need for an Amazon Prime membership. There is no minimum order size. If you, like most people, missed the memo, it’s a terrific alternative to start thinking about.

Because all purchases are fulfilled from their Kentucky warehouse, shipment will take between 4-8 business days, depending on your distance from the bluegrass state. The single easiest way to find these free shipping items is to go to the product page and click on “Other Sellers,” as those are the majority of qualifying products.

Get Free Shipping by Adding “Filler” Items.

If you aren’t a Prime member, you’re surely aware that Amazon offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more every day. Furthermore, many third-party retailers provide free shipping with no minimum purchase size requirement. Always look into the delivery discounts that “Other Sellers on Amazon” are providing.

In addition, if you order books, you only need to pay $25 and your complete order will ship for free. But what happens if your order amount falls just shy of the minimum order threshold? Rather than paying for shipping or adding items to your cart that you don’t need, use a site like Cheap or Filler

This useful website lets you enter the precise cash amount required to qualify for free shipping, as well as the product categories you might be interested in. This is a very useful technique for getting free shipping on Amazon without having to pay for a Prime membership. The takeaway here is to only add items to your cart that you need to qualify for free shipping.

Things you can use around the house or as a stocking stuffer or forthcoming gift for someone in your life. It’s also worth mentioning that you can buy Amazon gift cards to get you to the $25 free shipping level. Then you can simply apply them to future purchases.

Free Shipping with “Pre-Order.”

Consider adding things that are only available for pre-order to your Amazon shopping basket for a stealthy little-known approach to boost your Amazon shopping cart above $25. This is because they contribute to your $25 minimum order requirement for free shipping.

The best thing is that you will not be charged for pre-order items until they become available and delivered. So, if you change your mind or decide you don’t want the item, simply cancel the order before it ships. Books, video games, Blu-ray movies, and smaller tech products are the greatest product categories to look for pre-order items in.

Subscribe and Save

We all have goods in our lives that need to be replenished regularly. Consider shampoo, soap, diapers, dog food, laundry detergent, garbage bags, toilet paper, and the list goes on. Amazon‘s Subscribe & Save service is free to join and allows you to acquire these things for a low price AND have them delivered to your home for free.

Again, there is no need for a Prime membership. In addition, by using Subscribe & Save, you can save up to 15% off the standard everyday Amazon price. Here’s how it works, according to Amazon:

  1. In the Subscribe & Save store, you can choose from thousands of qualifying products.
  2. Create your subscription by selecting a delivery frequency.
  3. Skip or cancel your subscriptions at any time by going to Your Account > Your Subscribe & Save Items.
  4. We will send you a reminder email before each delivery with the item pricing and any applicable discount for your forthcoming delivery. The price of the item may change depending on the pricing of the item on at the time we complete your order.
  5. Once you enroll, there is no obligation, and Amazon will send you an email reminder before your product ships.


Maybe you don’t do much online shopping, or maybe you don’t need the extra privileges that come with a Prime membership. I hope these strategies assist you in shopping at Amazon while avoiding the Prime annual cost and still receiving free delivery to your door.
