Email DiscountsSigning up for Amazon’s newsletter is simple. You can sign up under your account options, and Amazon will cater to your tastes based on search and purchase history. They will alert you to deals on things that might interest you specifically.
Shipping DealsBecause Amazon sells items for other merchants, their shipping costs can vary greatly. If shipping from within your home country, the prices are usually not outrageous. If you sign up for Amazon Prime, however, you can receive free two-day shipping on most products.
Amazon might be a general marketplace, but it also functions as a store itself. The free shipping offer on orders exceeding $35 only applies to items shipped by Amazon.
