FBN's Cheryl Casone on Amazon reportedly nearing a decision on the location of its second headquarters and the company waiving its purchase minimum for free shipping on holiday orders.

See the details about Amazon Prime and get a 30-Day free trial (just in time for Black Friday deals) at HERE.

Amazon's ultra-fast delivery service, Prime Now, will also offer special Black Friday deals to more than 30% of the United Kingdom population, providing an ideal selection of gifts, gadgets, fashion and Christmas treats which can be delivered in scheduled one- and two-hour delivery windows or within 60 minutes in selected postcodes.

This is on top of the unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping that Prime members receive every day on more than 100 million items.

A day after Target's announcement, a public-relations firm hired by Amazon had sent journalists an email detailing the company's own delivery perks, a rundown that primarily listed features of the paid Prime program.

It marks the first time Amazon has removed the minimum order requirement for its free super-saver shipping tier.

Prime members in the USA can also shop FREE Same-Day Delivery on more than three million eligible items! Best Buy also removed its free shipping threshold for the holidays, but gives no time guarantees. The company expects sales for the fourth quarter to be between $66.5 billion and $72.5 billion.

The outlet will be open from November 22 to November 25 and will be located at 3-10 Shoreditch High Street in London. And even beyond groceries, Prime members can use Prime Now to get one- and two-hour delivery on tens of thousands of items across dozens of categories in 30 major cities, flawless for last minute parties, gifts or travel.
