Slowly but surely, Amazon is bringing its free-shipping-threshold back to amount we collectively remember it being. Now, in an apparent bid to undercut the likes of Walmart and Target, Jeff Bezos' online-shopping juggernaut has dropped the cart total for free shipping (for folks who aren't Prime members) to $25 from the $35 amount set in February.

As Best Black Friday notes, this happened sometime last week, but Amazon didn't made a big deal out of it. If you'll recall, Walmart and Target's thresholds for free shipping are cart totals of $35 or more. If you needed another blast from the last time free shipping without Prime was $25, we've embedded the video for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" below.
