Amazon UK Officially Announces Black Friday Sale 2018 & More Discount Days

Amazon UK Officially Announces Black Friday Sale 2018 & More Discount Days

This promotion waives that minimum for the time being, and puts Amazon in-step with competitor Target, which waived its $35 order minimum and now offers free two-day shipping to all customers through December 22.

Amazon has just announced that they are offering free shipping to all Amazon customers in the USA with no minimum purchase starting Monday, November 5!

There is no minimum purchase price.

Amazon also said that Amazon Prime members will be able to enjoy free same-day delivery.

It marks the first time Amazon has removed the minimum order requirement for its free super-saver shipping tier.

Amazon didn't say when customers using the free standard shipping tier would have to place orders to guarantee delivery by Christmas.

Holyrood ditches Saudi deal over journalist death
At last 18 people have been detained and several officials have been fired in relation to Khashoggi's killing. Five Turkish employees of the consulate also gave testimonies to prosecutors, Turkish media reported .

It's official - the countdown to Black Friday is now on with Amazon UK confirming it will run offers from Friday 16 November 2018 until 25 November 2018.

Monday's news will pile pressure on Walmart and Target, which in recent years have chipped away at Amazon's lead with their own offers of free two-day shipping. The Amazon help page explains that delivery will take five-to-eight working days and then only after all the items in your order are available, including pre-ordered products.

Like past year, more of Amazon's Echo smart speakers will no doubt feature in its Black Friday sale, which will see thousands of deals across consumer electronics. Amazon explained in the press release that the promo will last for a limited time, suggesting minimums will return.

Amazon Prime members still get two-day shipping, but the promotional free shipping deal is only good for Amazon's 5-8 day shipping speed.

Prime members in the United States do get a holiday perk, however.
