Amazon make free delivery permanent
You lot bloody loves Amazon you do. That’s the feeling we’re getting from the nominations that have come in so far from you for our Best Company in Britain 2009 poll. They’re the hot favourites to win it and no mistake.
Now, in what seems like a calculated attempt by Amazon to guarantee themselves big Bitterwallet votes, they have announced that they are making their free Super Saver delivery a permanent feature, following a trial run over the Christmas period.
Previously, customers only qualified for free delivery if their order was above £5 and it isn’t so long since the minimum order amount for Super Saver was a bewildering £15.
Now that the free delivery option is permanent, the noble art of trying to find the cheapest items required to bump up your basket and qualify your order for Super Saver is a thing of the past. Like Spangles, Chorlton And The Wheelies and the miner’s strike.
It’s a move that should guarantee another few nominations for Amazon in our Best Company contest while striking a blow against their rivals like Play, Zavvi and former NUM leader Arthur Scargill. Maybe not so much Scargill.
