Those not on Amazon Prime - Do you have items you regularly buy to get over $25 when you need a cheap item?

Prime is handy, but it’s too much money for me when you look at the cost for a year. It would be nice to get a $10 item anytime you need it. Are there items like groceries that you can always add on to get the over $25 free shipping?

I find groceries and other household sundries to be overpriced at Amazon.

Motor oil. About $23. But only a couple of times per year.

Agreed. I keep stuff like vitamin D or niacin in my cart, to add to other things I might need. I don’t mind having a little extra on hand. Vitamins and OTCs are okay, I think.

I do that WITH Amazon Prime...
Just can't bring myself to only order one $3 item.

I keep a list of things I'm going to need at some future time. When I buy something at Amazon and it's under $25, I just go to the list.

I do that all the time, that's one reason why I have Prime.

Ok, I don't think it's been as low as $3, but I can recall a couple of $4-$6 items from time to time.

I rationalize this because 98% of my stuff goes to an AMZ locker, so the carrier is very likely going to be there every day of the week for someone else, already.

Now if I know the item is available at Safeway, I'll get it there.

In either case, Safeway is a ~1.5mi round trip walk for me, so that's a plus, especially if gas goes to $8/gal this summer.

(One economist suggested this on KCBS, another said it could, but he'd take the bet it wouldn't.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Ditto. I guess if you live in the middle of no where, then sure, you might want to combine your items, but I figure there's probably an Amazon truck rolling past my house every day whether I've ordered something or not. And even if I say, combine my items or deliver them on the same day, they often still show up in individual packages so I'm not really saving on packaging material doing that.
