As of today, Amazon UK will no longer be offering their customers the free super-saver delivery unless they spend a minimum of £10 in a single order.
The company will however include some notable exceptions to this rule, with DVDs, Books, Blu-Ray discs, CDs, video games and software sales still eligible for the free delivery.
To be fair, those exceptions likely make up the bulk of all Amazon purchases anyway, and you can even pair cheap items into an order with those still eligible for the super-saver delivery have it sent for free. Amazon give this example:
“/you will continue to enjoy Free Super Saver Delivery on all orders that include these types of items, for example an order that includes a book for £3.49 and an HDMI cable for £4.49.”
As such, Amazon promise that “the change will affect only a very small proportion of orders” while allowing the online retailer to “offer you significantly expanded selection of lower priced products.”
No word yet on whether this policy will roll out to customers in the US, but we’ll keep you posted.
