NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Target on Monday lowered the threshold for free shipping on online orders to $25, making it among the most competitive among major retailers.

Its previous free-shipping minimum was $50, which placed it in the higher end of the spectrum.

Amazon offers free shipping on orders above $35, and offers free two-day delivery for customers who buy a subscription to its Amazon Prime service. Walmart offers free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Many retailers, including Target, temporally suspend those minimums for the holiday shopping season.

Target.com president Jason Goldberger said that the store “saw an enthusiastic response” to that offer.

The retailer already offers free shipping on most orders placed with its branded credit card.

Target also has a mobile app called Cartwheel for mobile shoppers.

    Every since Target took the lead in the war on banning any words that have anything to do with Christmas, especially during Christmas shopping season, I have no interest in them at all, they burned their bridge.

    After their fiasco with their lax credit card security, I’m not really interested in shopping via their online store, where my credit card will be stored for all eternity, until some Russian hacker steals it. Noooooope.

    Hi great website! Does running a blog similar to this take
    a large amount of work? I have very little knowledge
    of computer programming however I had been hoping to start
    my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I just had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!
