Free 1-Day Shipping arrives at Amazon

As we are getting even closer to Christmas 2015 (yet another year flew by fast!), the free 1-day shipping promotion returned to Amazon’s website. As of the time of writing, over 150 Camera and Photo items are eligible, along with 50+ software titles, and a variety of other Electronics, Toys, Gifts, and household items.

TIP: you have to manually select 1-Day shipping in the shopping cart. All items must be shipped to the same address. If you are buying multiple eligible items but want some of them to ship to other addresses, just place two or more separate orders. If you are a Prime member, the usual $3.99 1-Day shipping fee will be automatically discounted at the Checkout page. This is good for the Continental US states including the Republic of Texas.

Some items may also be eligible for free returns (it will mention this in the product listing). Here’s an annotated screenshot crop example from the Sony a6000 page:


As usual, only items sold and shipped by Amazon itself are eligible. Items “fulfilled by Amazon” are not eligible for free 1-Day shipping, but they are eligible for Prime/Super-Saver shipping benefits.
