The company had previously set a threshold of $25 for orders to qualify for free shipping, but Amazon will waive that requirement starting Monday, according to the company.

Amazon also said Monday that it has expanded the number of items and locations where Prime members can get free same-day delivery.

US online retail sales in November and December will rise 14.8 percent, to $124 billion, software maker Adobe said last week in a forecast based on data from 80 of the 100 largest online retailers.

· Free Shipping This Holiday: All Amazon customers can shop hundreds of millions of items including every product category with free shipping, and now for a limited time, there is no minimum purchase amount on orders delivered through the holiday season. Amazon Day (not to be confused with Amazon Prime Day) is now available to a selected group of shoppers in the U.S., giving them the option to pick a specific day of the week to receive deliveries. Target announced last month it would offer free two-day shipping on all orders from November 1 to December 22. Not to be beaten on its home turf, Amazon is already looking to counter Walmart and Target with its own bolstered free shipping.

Amazon is following Target and temporarily dropping the minimum amount shoppers need to spend to qualify for free shipping. "With hundreds of millions of items available for free shipping to all Amazon customers and more than three million items available with Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery, customers can enjoy the largest selection of items that are fast and free".
