    To get Add On Items without having $25 of stuff in your cart. I got this message when I checked out with an add on item in my cart without have $25 in my cart. A Prime member perk, apparently.

    I don’t understand the benefit of this. If you’re a Prime member, you already get free shipping

    What am I missing?

    There are some items that are listed as "add-on" even for Prime members, meaning Amazon will not ship them unless they are included in a $25 minimum order. It's usually small items. This new option lets you place orders for those items standalone and just pick the day of the week you want them shipped. I don't order add-on items too often, but always found it annoying when something I did want fell into this category. I like this new option, as I can usually wait a few days for whatever I order -- in fact, quite often I choose Amazon's "no rush" shipping option when they are offering $1 credits towards digital purchases. I accumulate those credits for free movie rentals.

    Before they started this even Prime members had to have a minimum $25 purchase before "Add On" items would ship. It was quite annoying. Hopefully this'll continue past the Holiday period.

    Yep. I'm quite happy to wait a day or three if I don't have to get a $25 order up for an add-on product.

    I *always* opt for "no rush" shipping and earn enough in a year to fully offset the cost of Prime. I use them for movies, music, and software purchases.

    Amazon day not to be confused with Amazon Prime day....

    So does this mean they'll actually have good deals?

    Amazon Day is not a "sale" -- it just refers to the day of the week you selected when your Amazon add-on items will be shipped. That day of the week is your "Amazon Day" every single week when you order an add-on item.

    Your "Amazon Day" is not set in stone when select it. It can apparently be moved to 2 days out from the day the order is placed. Order early enough on a Tuesday and you can set it for Thursday of that week. At least that's how it's worked for me so far. It's only different from normal 2-day shipping in that you can specify the exact date for a delivery outside that 2-day delivery window.

    Thank you for posting about this. I had not discovered this yet.

    I've never ordered an add-on item, but this is good to know.
