You have to spend more for Free Amazon delivery

Amazon has confirmed that it is doubling the amount customers will have to spend to qualify for free delivery in the UK - other than for books.
Until today, you had to buy items costing at least £10 in total to be given Free Super Saver Delivery; now the goods will have to add up to £20.
The perk has been a popular aspect of the giant internet retailer's offering.
But Amazon has been trying to convince more customers to sign on for its Prime service, including free one-day delivery but costing £79 a year.

Here's the info from Amazon:

About Changes to FREE Super Saver Delivery
This change relates specifically to FREE Super Saver Delivery. All other delivery services including Amazon Prime and delivery of digital products remain unchanged.
Our FREE Super Saver Delivery service is changing. From 1 May, 2015, orders including £10 or more of books qualify for FREE Super Saver Delivery. All orders of £20 or more across any product category also qualify for FREE Super Saver Delivery. Previously, a £10 threshold applied for all orders to qualify for FREE Super Saver Delivery.
We continue to work hard every day to improve the delivery services that we offer. For example, we added over 10,000 new Amazon Pickup Locations last year to ensure that our customers can collect their deliveries at a time and place that suits them. Also, millions of Amazon customers have already chosen faster delivery by becoming Amazon Prime members. Amazon Prime is £79 a year and offers unlimited One-Day Delivery on over 9 million items, unlimited streaming of more than 15,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video, access to thousands of Kindle titles to borrow for free and unlimited photo storage.

Please note that this change won't affect any pre-orders or orders for items not in stock placed before 1 May, 2015, where you've already selected FREE Super Saver Delivery.
