Walmart is known for its “rollback” signs, and it looks like it has forced Amazon into a roll back of its own.

Amazon, which last year raised the minimum order amount on items needed to qualify for free shipping from $35 to $49, has lowered the minimum back to $35.

Walmart, ramping up its online business to compete with Amazon, recently began offering free shipping on online orders of at least $35.
