I have to say, I found some great deals on items I wanted to purchase as Christmas gifts, and I have received free shipping on all of them so far. I find that exciting. We did a "shop 'til you drop" trip over the weekend, and whew, did I drop. My back just won't cooperate any more. I had to rest after every store or shop, and sometimes in between. It was a very long day. So, when I got home and found almost all of the other items I wanted on Amazon, with free shipping (over $35), I was quite happy. I think I'm finished now, and it's really all thanks to the free shipping.
