Amazon has raised the minimum order total requirement from $35 to $49 for non prime members.

Definitely pushing people to sign up to prime

Wow. They keep raising it. It used to be $25. Definitely annoying for those who don't have Prime.

Why even use Amazon?  Target and Walmart are usually cheaper.  Get the red card.  Free shipping no minimum

With Amazon? Yes, on certain items, if you spend $35, in certain zip codes. Order by noon and you get it by 9pm that day.

Yup! Now that they make more money on prime membership, why not surge ahead forcing more people to but their more expensive services?
