(AP)- Just in time for holiday shopping, Amazon will offer free shipping on all orders arriving in time for Christmas.
As part of the promotion, the online retailer is waiving the $25 purchase minimum for non-Prime members starting Monday.
Hundreds of millions of items will be eligible for free shipping.
Amazon hopes to boost sales and add new Prime members along the way.
Prime members already receive free shipping, however, during the holiday season Amazon is adding an extra perk for them.
Some of Amazon’s competitors are also offering free shipping this holiday season; Target announced last month it would offer free two-day shipping on all orders from November 1 to December 22.
