Amazon is taking another leap forward in the highly competitive online free-shipping game.
According to Bloomberg, the e-commerce giant is rolling out free delivery for all customers — not just Prime members — on thousands of small, low-cost, light-weight products such as "makeup, mobile phone accessories, [and] earplugs" with no minimum order amount.
The new initiative comes not even a week after Amazon began offering free same-day delivery to its Amazon Prime members in select cities across the country.
