No change was announced for Prime members, who already get two-day (or faster) shipping at no additional cost and with no minimum order. Shoppers who aren't Prime members will get slower shipping, though, which can take five to eight days.

Amazon did not announce a cutoff date for the promotion, but said that free shipping will be available for all orders arriving in time for Christmas. The company is temporarily offering free shipping to all customers-Prime or no-on all purchases, reports USA Today.

Amazon is offering free shipping for all customers for a limited time this holiday, starting November 5.

If you are a Prime subscriber, Amazon says Prime Same-Day Delivery now offers more than 3 million items, which is the largest same-day selection from the company ever.

The tool will be present in the Amazon app and will allow customers to place "selected products" in their home before they make a transaction using augmented reality technology.

With the all-important holiday season kicking off around Thanksgiving later this month, retailers are jockeying for customers' dollars and hoping to outpace Amazon, which takes up almost 50 cents of each dollar spent online in the US. Best Buy also removed its free shipping threshold for the holidays, but gives no time guarantees.

For the current quarter ending in December, Amazon said it expects revenue in the range of $66.5 billion to $72.5 billion. And even beyond groceries, Prime members can use Prime Now to get one- and two-hour delivery on tens of thousands of items across dozens of categories in 30 major cities, flawless for last minute parties, gifts or travel.
