Amazon’s add-on items have long been a nuisance as they require ordering $25+ of items in order to get them. They are often great deals, but they required that you buy other items that you might not need.
Amazon launched Amazon Day as a trial where you could pick a day of the week that you can have multiple items delivered on.
Initially Amazon allowed targeted members to order add-on items without $25+ orders, but when Amazon opened Amazon Day to more members they killed that benefit. I wasn’t part of the initial trial, so I was never able to order add-on items with Amazon Day.
Amazon Day was created for the “convenience” of having everything come on the same day, but really the main benefit is for Amazon to save money on shipping. Without the add-on benefit there wasn’t really any benefit for most consumers.
Amazon has now brought that benefit back and Amazon Prime members can now purchase add-on items without a $25 order minimum!
In the past there was no option to checkout for an add-on item until you added $25+ to your cart.
Now I get this screen when trying to checkout to select an “Amazon Day:”
After that I was able to proceed to checkout with the add-on item:
The Amazon Day options will show up for all of your orders, but there’s no need to select it. You’ll still be able to use faster shipping for all other items.
This is a great benefit for Prime members!
