Target is taking on Amazon Prime with free shipping for the holidays

The retailer has announced that it has removed its minimum order amount
required for customers to qualify for free shipping, reports CNBC. The
standard threshold for free two-day shipping is $35 but from November
1st to December 22nd all orders of any amount, no matter how small, will
get free two-day shipping.

The move is a first for the company and follows Walmart’s announcement

third-party retailers on its site. But of course, both retailers are

offers free two-day shipping on more than a million items to

However, Target is upping the ante on Amazon by doing something it
cannot. The brick-and-mortar retailer says its “Drive Up” service, which
lets customers order a product online and then have it delivered right
to their car when they drive up to the store, will be available at more
than 1,000 stores this holiday season.
