Free Shipping - While it has not yet made the announcement, I expect Best Buy to offer free standard shipping on all orders for the duration of the holiday season. As mentioned above, Amazon forces non-Prime members to spend at least $25 before being eligible for free shipping. If you are not a Prime member or are unable to sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial, then you should shop at Best Buy for small orders under $25. If you are eligible for a 30-day Prime trial or you are already a Prime member, Amazon wins easily because of its free two-day shipping with no minimum order size.
Barnes & Noble sued Amazon on May 12, 1997, alleging that Amazon's claim to be "the world's largest bookstore" was false because it "...isn't a bookstore at all. It's a book broker." The suit was later settled out of court and Amazon continued to make the same claim.[36] Walmart sued Amazon on October 16, 1998, alleging that Amazon had stolen Walmart's trade secrets by hiring former Walmart executives. Although this suit was also settled out of court, it caused Amazon to implement internal restrictions and the reassignment of the former Walmart executives.[36]
