As a benefit of being an American Express card holder, I have free ShopRunner membership ($79 annual value). I find that having this service comes in handy at certain merchants who use ShopRunner to get free 2-day shipping and free returns. I currently have the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, and The Platinum Card® from American Express, as well as the a few others. You can read here how I got free ShopRunner by being an eligible American Express cardholder.

The other day I received the following email from American Express letting me know that in the future, a minimum order size will be required at certain retailers in order to receive ShopRunner free shipping benefits. This is definitely a downgrade in how valuable this service is to me. A lot of times, I find it useful that I can order something that is on sale for only $5 or $10 and get the free shipping with ShopRunner. I guess it depends on the retailer and what the minimums are before I can decide for sure how this will affect my online shopping going forward.
I love online shopping and hate to pay for shipping, so I use ShopRunner whenever I can. I find it to be a good benefit of being an American Express card holder. I guess we will have to wait and see what these minimums are at certain retailers. But, this news doesn’t sound great to me.
