Amazon rolls back order size for free grocery delivery to $100

The change comes less than a year after the e-commerce giant raised its Amazon Fresh purchase threshold for free delivery from $35 to $150.

Experts predict a big boost for e-commerce sales, particularly for Barbie-branded items.

Fresh Perspectives: Food shoppers’ high frequency offers the e-tail giant a huge opportunity to cross-sell more profitable products and keep consumers in its “ecosystem.”

The convenience-store concept from the retail giant has Just Walk Out technology, package-less returns and hub lockers.

The lawsuit claims the company engages in “exclusionary conduct” that stifles existing competition and prevents new competitors from entering the market.

Amazon has already deployed artificial intelligence at many of its brick-and-mortar stores through palm-recognition technology, smart shopping carts and so-called just-walk-out tech.

The retail giant is also selling its Amazon One technology, which allows Amazon Prime members to pay with a swipe of their palm across a scanner, to sports and entertainment venues, airport retailers and restaurants, among others.

The manufacturer-sponsored coupons apply to more than 15 brands, such as Novo Nordisk, Eli Lilly, Sanofi, Dexcom and Insulet, which produce a variety of related products like insulin vials, pens, continuous glucose monitors and pumps.

The announcement comes less than a week after Amazon released its Q2 earnings report, where Amazon CEO Andy Jassy explained that the expansion of the company’s delivery network will help grow its grocery businesses.
