Amazon is getting customers in the holiday spirit with an offer they can’t pass up.

In an effort to add new Prime members and boost sales, the retail giant is offering free shipping on all holiday orders for the very first time, CNN Business reports.

Before, Amazon shoppers without Prime memberships had to spend at least $25 to get free shipping. But this year, Amazon is waiving the purchase minimum purchase requirement for free shipping to give “customers even more convenient and faster delivery options,” the company said in a statement.

Prime members already get free two-day shipping, but they do get a new perk.  Typically, Amazon same-day delivery is available on only about a million items. But for the holidays, more than three million items will be eligible for same-day delivery. 

Hundreds of millions of items will be eligible for free shipping, the retailer said.
