This is no joke: Target’s new free shipping threshold changes everything. Now just $25 — half of what it was before and lower than many other big retailers’ minimum — the change opens up some stellar shopping possibilities.
So, exactly what kinds of $25+ Target.com orders can actually change your life? A Bullseye View gave that question some serious thought and came up with the following real-life scenarios. Take a look:
Like to travel light? With so many of Target’s latest and greatest styles priced in the $20 range, you can ship that new cover up or pair of flip flops to your hotel in advance. Throw in an extra bikini while you’re at it — it may come in handy!
Cough drops ($1.49) + tissues ($1.99) + vitamin C ($8.89) + tea ($3.29) + Zicam ($9.79) = $25.54. Bingo! You just scored free shipping! Stock up on these items and other wellness essentials so you’re ready when you or someone in your family falls ill.
Pro tip: Got the sniffles now? Stay in bed: Use your phone or tablet to order, select the store pickup option and have a friend or spouse pick it up for you!
Many items from Target’s Home & Registry collection ring in at less than $20 — and trust us, the bride and groom only want you to spend what you can afford. As long as your gift tallies $25 or more (e.g. this Threshold ceramic platter + serving bowl, which ring in at $25.98) you’re set — the shipping’s on Target!
You thought you covered everything when you created your baby registry, but turns out, you need a lot of extra stuff when traveling with an infant. Save yourself a trip to the store — shopping can be a challenge with baby in tow — and order everything you need in one fell swoop. Even if it’s just to have a single, soothing toy on hand to save the day (at $33.99, this Sophie the Giraffe teether and book set qualifies for free shipping).
And these are just a few of the many, many possibilities — who knew $25 could change so much?
