We just confirmed from an anonymous source at Target that the retailer will be raising their free shipping minimum to $35 starting Sunday, May, 7th! The threshold change is likely a move to stay competitive with other big box retailers like Amazon and Walmart. Amazon dropped their shipping threshold from $49 to $35 and Walmart has eliminated their ShippingPass program to offer all shoppers free 2-day shipping on purchases of $35 or more. If you don't want to wait around for a delivery, don't forget about Targets order pickup program. With this option, all shoppers will be able to pick up most orders as soon as the day of purchase at your nearest Target location (no minimum purchase needed!).

Speaking of store pickup options, Walmart recently launched a rare Pickup Discount to complete with the major online retailer, Amazon. Basically, if you opt to pick up your items instead of having them shipped, you'll enjoy a special pick up discount on said item(s). This offer is available for over 10,000 items on Walmart Pickup page with millions more to be added by the end of June 2017. 

Check out other offers from Target below and see what savings you may be missing out on.

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.

Still cheaper than going to target in-store and accidentally buying a cart's worth of random stuff for over $100 when you just wanted to grab a bottle of shampoo!

I guess this is kind of expected. They've been offering it for a while, but all their competitors have been upping the free shipping minimum steadily. I rarely shop at Target online though, and I feel like that is the case for many of the people I know, so I wonder how this change will affect their online sales.
