Re: Point of reference (Score: 2, Informative) by email@example.com in Amazon increases free shipping minimum order to $49 on 2016-02-29 09:17 (#15FSB) $50 happens to be the cutoff for Walmart online, too.Walmart also offers free $0 in-store pickup on ALMOST anything you can order online. No such option with Amazon.Target is just $25 for free shipping. Sears/Kmart is at $35. Frys.com is still $34 to get free shipping. Of course many 3rd party sellers listed on Amazon have free shipping included in the price, with no minimum order size, but Amazon commonly sells the item much cheaper, if they have it available at all.
