Amazon package on doorstep

Amazon once again lets you order add-on items without a $25 minimum thanks to Amazon Day. You’ll get your entire week’s Amazon Day orders on a single day—even if all you order that week is a $2 add-on item.

This replaces the previous method of ordering add-on items without a minimum purchase by asking Alexa. You can’t ask Alexa to bypass the minimum anymore—but Amazon Day will do it.

To bypass the minimum, all you have to do is purchase the add-on item, go to the checkout screen, and switch your account to Amazon Day shipping.

For example, as Dan’s Deals points out, this box of band-aids only costs $2.19—but it’s an add-on item. When we add the item to our cart and head to the cart page, Amazon informs us that the item will ship free with Amazon Day delivery.

Amazon Day option for add-on item

On the checkout screen, the only option is Amazon Day delivery. if you have Amazon Prime, you can click “Place your older” and order the item with no minimum purchase required. You’ll just have to wait until your Amazon Day.

Ordering an add-on item with no minimum on Amazon

When you order items in the future, you can choose to add them either to your Amazon Day or with a normal option like Prime free two-day shipping. Selecting Amazon Day here doesn’t force you to get all your orders on Amazon Day—only those orders you add to your Amazon Day shipping.

This makes Amazon Prime much more useful. It’s now possible to purchase many more items from Amazon without being forced to place $25 orders. So what are you waiting for? Head to and order all the add-on items you want.
