Good news for non-Amazon Prime members—you too can benefit from free shipping with no minimum orders. Starting today, November 5, and applying to packages delivered during the holiday season, everything ships gratis, no matter what your final cart total is.

Amazon says “this offer applies to hundreds of millions of items [making it] the largest free shipping selection in the country,” according to a press release this morning.

This move isn’t all that surprising, since Target announced free two-day shipping for the holidays last week. Amazon doesn’t specify the shipping speed for non-Prime orders, or how long the “limited” offer will last.

Though we’re not exactly canceling our memberships—Prime members will get their orders even quicker, with over 3 million items available for free same-day delivery. Not to mention Whole Foods and Prime Now orders are delivered in as little as one hour in 60 metro areas, the company states, which comes in handy when hosting during the holidays.
