Add On Program ExplainedAny item in this list can be used as an Add On item, however, items labeled "Add On Only" are part of Amazon's official Add On Program.  Add On Only items really only affect Prime Members.  To get Add On Only Items to ship for free, as a Prime Member, you need to put together a $25 order.  If you're not a Prime Member, these items act the exact same as Free Shipping Eligible items.  You just need to put together a qualifying $35 order.

Free Shipping Eligible vs Prime Eligible:  Items that are Free Shipping Eligible are also Prime Eligible.  Note the labeling on this item...

It's also Prime Eligible

Prices and Free Shipping status change regularly.  If the default option doesn't qualify for Free or Prime Shipping, take a look under "More buying choices" on the right side of your screen options that may qualify.

These are a great option for grain storage.  They fit on top of a standard 5 gallon bucket and provide and airtight seal.  An outer ring snaps on the bucket.  The inner portion of the lid screws on and off for easy access to grain.  The general rule of thumb is... a 50 lb sack of grain will fit in two 5 gallon buckets.  Review

\I use two of these on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.
