Have you noticed this image below lower cost items at Amazon lately?
Amazon’s got a new Add-on program, which you can read about here. Here’s the gist of it:
We’ve kicked off the Add-on program with thousands of new Add-on Items, and we’re adding more each day. Add-on Items ship with orders that include $25 or more of items shipped by Amazon, and you can get them delivered to your doorstep with free shipping.
…Add-on Items are products of all different sorts at a low price point, from a jar of paprika to a single light bulb. Previously it was only possible for us to offer items like these in large multi-pack sizes (which for many families would have been too much paprika).
…To purchase Add-on Items, just include them in an order with $25 or more of the millions of items shipped by Amazon. For example, you could order a $5 packet of teriyaki-flavored beef jerky that’s an Add-on Item with a $20 thermos, an $80 pair of shoes, or anything else that gets your order to $25 or more of items shipped by Amazon.
…When you add an Add-on Item to an Amazon Prime order of more than $25, your Add-on Item will also receive Prime shipping benefits, including FREE Two-Day Shipping. For example, if you ordered five $5 pacifiers, each of which was an Add-on Item, your order would receive FREE Two-Day Shipping.
…If you’re not a Prime member, you can combine your Add-on Items with other items and take advantage of FREE Super Saver Shipping. For example, you could include a $6 bath sponge that’s an Add-on Item with two $10 paperbacks and receive FREE Super Saver Shipping on all three items.
The program’s been around since May, evidently, but I spotted it today for the first time when looking at straw cups in the baby department. I sum it up this way: Amazon’s offering a bunch of new items priced at $6 or less, but you can only buy it if you’re ordering $25 worth of stuff or more, even if you have Prime.
What’s your take? Do you find Amazon’s new Add-on program useful?
