Amazon: What is Super Saver Shipping?

As most of you know by now, Amazon is becoming my #1 place online to shop. I hope this series is helping you learn more and more about Amazon. Make sure you check out the other posts in this series here so you are caught up. Today we are talking about Super Saver Shipping.

Amazon’s Super Saver Shipping makes online shopping affordable with FREE shipping for qualifying orders of $25 or more!


To see if a product qualifies, look for  the wording “eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping” next to the price.

  • Add at least $25 worth of eligible products to your cart.
  • Ship your entire order to a single address within the U.S.
  • Select the option to group your items into as few shipments as possible.
  • Choose Super Saver Shipping. (be careful, because it normally defaults you to the shipping that cost money, so you do have to select the Super Saver Shipping)

Amazon says to allow 5-8 business days for delivery, but from my experience most orders come much sooner than that. Once your order is complete, they will give you a date that the order will arrive. My orders have almost always arrived on the day they say it will.

Here are a few other things you need to know:

  • You will still be charged shipping for items that are not eligible for Super Saver Shipping even if the rest of your order qualifies for FREE shipping.
  • Subscribe & Save offers automatically include FREE shipping regardless of the total.
  • Magazine subscriptions ship FREE, but they do count toward the $25 minute for Super Saver Shipping for the rest of your order.
  • Super Saver Shipping is offered to all 50 states, but some larger items cannot be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii with FREE shipping.
  • Gift cards do not count toward Super Saver Shipping
  • Digital products such as Kindle ebooks and MP3s are also excluded from the $25 amount.
