Good news and bad news for Amazon.com shoppers. The bad news is that the site has raised the minimum requirement to qualify for super saver shipping. Starting today, the minimum has gone up from $25.00 to $35.00. Total bummer!

The good news is that you can still sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. That means free 2-day shipping on all orders! Now is the time to try it out, especially with the start of holiday shopping and holiday deals.

To sign up:

  • Visit Amazon.com.
  • Click on the “Start Your 30-Day Free Trial” button.
  • Enter your payment information and billing address. Your card will not be charged if you cancel the subscription within the 30-day period.
  • Click on the “start my free trial” button. That’s it!
