"We just started with Business Prime. In prior years there was an option for free shipping, but schools wanted to get products shipped faster and they were selecting options with shipping costs. Our Account Representative with Amazon Business let us know that we were spending over $4,200 in shipping costs prior to Business Prime. Now we are seeing a significant savings through Business Prime’s free shipping options.”
