Amazon free super saver shipping threshold now $49

Amazon raised the price of their "super saver" shipping option in the past few days without a major announcement.  Below is a screengrab of their shipping policy page showing that you'll need to spend $49 or more to get free shipping (for books only, the threshold is $25):

Back in October of 2013, Amazon had raised the $25 minimum for free shipping up to $35.  So in 16 months, the threshold has effectively doubled.

Does this change make you want to consider becoming an Amazon Prime member?  Prime membership is $99 a year and includes more benefits other than the free two-day ship.  If you're still not sure you want to commit, go steady instead by signing up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial by clicking the link below.

Are you a student? Amazon understands that you're just a poor college student struggling to get by and they offer a special deal for students.  Students can get a free six (6) month trial and, if the student decides to join Prime after the trial ends, they get to purchase membership for half off.  Are you a student or know one?  You can access the Amazon Student free trial at the link below.
