The Verge reported that a year after the company raised the minimum amount to $49, it has now moved the point back to $35.

The offer does not apply to Amazon Prime account holders, who have free two-day shipping for any order under Amazon's Prime membership program, but instead is a benefit for Amazon users who do not pay $99 a year or $10.99 a month for Prime.

USA Today reported that the move comes after Walmart announced its free two-day shipping would be available on 2 million items, with the minimum amount to qualify for free shipping being lowered from $50 to $35.
