Having No Free Shipping Option

I was kind of surprised to read this the other day where Amazon was discontinuing its free shipping option for people that live in areas that aren’t serviced on a regular basis. Normally you could get free shipping by making a minimum purchase such as $25.

It does make me wonder why a business wouldn’t give the option of getting free shipping by at least making the minimum purchase higher if cost is an issue. I know for myself that is usually a big factor in deciding where to shop on a consistent basis. Wouldn’t be surprised if businesses make a lot of money from cart filler items that have a huge markup too.
