Apple kicked off a new promotion in time for Father's Day that offers free shipping on all online purchases placed through May 29. This limited time offer waives the $50 minimum purchase Apple usually requires for free shipping.

Besides the Father's Day branding and shipping promotion, Apple also updated its website with a gift guide that showcases the top gifts this year for Dads. Items highlighted on the list include the iGrill mini Smart Grilling Thermometer, Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over-Ear Headphones and the Nike+ FuelBand SE.

Apple's retail and online sales experiences may change now that Angela Ahrendts is at the helm of Apple's retail operations. She reportedly shook up the in-house retail team and started reaching out to Apple Store employees in her first few weeks on the job. She is expected to focus on increasing Apple's presence in China, improving mobile payment options and redesigning the "end-to-end Apple Store sales experience."

I'm wondering where Macrumors got this piece of news.
For me, the Apple Store's (US) front page still says:
"get free shipping direct to your door on all orders over $50",
and indeed if my cart is less than $50 I get charged for shipping fees.

I chatted with an Apple Associate asking for the "free shipping for everything" promotion and she told me "there's no such promotion". She redirected me to the web page where Apple lists their promotions and rebates, and indeed there's nothing regarding that.

I live in California (which is still part of the US, as far as I know), but maybe the offer isn't valid for all US states ? :confused:

Free Shipping?

What can you get for less than $50 to make the free shipping worth while?
