Well I'll have to find something else to add to my Amazon order just to get the item I want
I just stumbled into what they call an "add on" item. I've never seen this before. It's apparently an item they have... and it ships free with Prime... but you need to have $25 worth of other "qualifying" items in your cart to get the add on item. Otherwise they keep the item for your next order, provided you have $25 worth of qualifying stuff in that order.
And the only stinkin' item I even want is that $3.79 item! What the heck is this now? Why can't they just ship it with the other $15.93 items in my cart?
I wish I could remember what I wanted that mellon baller for... I'd add one in with my order.

I went to order some WineAway, which was an add-on. Fine, when I ordered a total of 5 bottles of WineAway, it totaled more than $25, so was no longer considered an "add-on". I didn't have to order anything else.

I ordered an add-on item once. These are things that are not cost effective to ship by themselves with shipping charges. Is it something you can't find anywhere else?

I recall seeing it last year. Strangely, I've ordered single items for under $5 that shipped free through Prime, and they weren't considered add-ons.

When I shop on Amazon I put things on my Wish List as I see them. Then when I do find something I'd like to have right away I look through my Wish List and add some of the smaller items to get up to $35. I really try to avoid paying shipping.

hmmm, meatballs... maybe, Vit. Maybe small uniform meatballs. Even using a spoon to scoop with they seem to grow in size.

A year for add on items? I'm surprised I haven't run into one before.
And I can't find one locally. It's a special bit for a Dremel tool. The local Ace has a great selection, but not every one they make. And of course it's about half the price at Amazon.

I just can't believe I haven't run into one before.

I ran into an ad-on item when I finally found the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Handles, I got them and two refills each, I was still $4 short of the $35 free shipping, it popped up an ad-on suggestion for a tub o'Regular Mr Clean Magic Erasers that covered that and I got my free shipping. It also offered me coupons on two items.
