Those who pay for a Prime membership (here's how to get a free Amazon Prime account) will be able to access these deals 30 minutes early.

As previously reported by FOX Business, Amazon competitor Walmart announced Tuesday it will expand its free two-day shipping options in November.

Today Amazon announced that they are offering free shipping to everyone in the United States with no minimum purchase needed.

The offer applies to "hundreds of millions of items", Amazon said, describing the perk as "the largest free shipping selection in the country".

Amazon is offering free shipping for all customers for a limited time this holiday, starting November 5.

Amazon already offered free 2-day shipping to Amazon Prime subscribers, which is why Target made free 2-day shipping for its customers.

Even though over half of all United States households now have Prime memberships, Amazon would undoubtedly like to convert even more consumers to paid subscribers.

Amazon UK hasn't revealed any of the Black Friday deals for this year, but in its announcement it did highlight some of the top deals from last year.

On Monday, Amazon returned fire, saying it will eat the shipping costs on "hundreds of millions" of items on its online bazaar during the holiday rush.

Amazon isn't the only merchant slashing shipping fees.

For the current quarter ending in December, Amazon said it expects revenue in the range of $66.5 billion to $72.5 billion.

US online retail sales in November and December will rise 14.8 percent, to $124 billion, software maker Adobe said last week in a forecast based on data from 80 of the 100 largest online retailers.

If anyone does not have Prime and wants to try it, Amazon is willing to offer free trials even while this free shipping promotion runs its course.
