MarketWatch looked for the heaviest item Amazon would ship for free. The result…
So what’s the heaviest item Amazon will ship for free? The company declined to say, but the makers of a 1,509-pound safe (shipping weight: 1,672 pounds) claim the prize for biggest bang for one’s 79 bucks. See Cannon Safe CO54 Commander Series Premium 90 Minute Fire Safe
These days, if Wile E. Coyote wanted a safe to drop on the Road Runner, he would be better off ordering from Amazon than Acme, which probably charged for shipping.
The Cannon Commander Series 54 is designed by Cannon Safe to hold up to 48 guns, but can also be used to protect jewelry and important documents. It stands 6-feet tall, features a 5.75-inch thick steel door with 13 locking bolts and sells for $3,486.57 on Amazon.
It normally costs about $700 to ship elsewhere, but Amazon will ship it at no additional cost. Super saver indeed. (And the delivery guy will probably stand on your doorstep and grin as you try to get it inside your home.)
