Re: Point of reference (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org in Amazon increases free shipping minimum order to $49 on 2016-03-01 19:36 (#15NRM) I placed 91 orders in 2015, 'mkay? I care a lot about 2 days vs 7 days. I use Prime Video all the time. So it is a huge bargain FOR ME.Your numbers made me curious, so I checked on mine and Amazon reports I placed 123 orders in 2015, and that's a bit lower than the previous year. All this without paying a cent for Prime, and depending on free shipping. Of course, without a dollar figure, this isn't too revealing... One $1 item can count as an order, and Amazon often splits up a single cart into multiple orders.I will be curious to see how the increased threshold for free shipping affects their sales this year.
