Amazon is making its rival sweat even the one link Walmart a bit more in the holiday season by providing free shipping for any purchase without any cost limit for each and every one.
The online retail giant has made the announcement that it is laying off its normal $25 minimum fee charge for the non-Prime subscribers in the United States. This is the first time that the company has done something like this, as per Reuters.
The deal is in effect and will continue till before Christmas for sure, but after that, there is no promise from Amazon of free delivery on Christmas day.

To ensure that it should not miff the Prime subscribers who are paying $120 for the similar benefit, the online retail giant seems to be increasing its free same day delivery to the prime subscribers for almost 3M products, instead of free delivery in 2 days, as confirmed by Engadget.
