How do I pay for shipping on Amazon with items that are eligible for free shipping?

Does anyone else ever have this problem? It's so annoying! I don't want to spend 25$! I have a little add-on item I want to buy and pay extra to ship it, it won't let me! Is their any way to get around this? I can't find anything on the internet helpful. Nobody else seems to have the problem I've been having.

What about buying it through other vendors? Like if you go to the "8 new from $4.43" type link.

It has happened to me recently while I was online shopping there... is now making some of their items "Add-on" that must add up to $25.00 or more for the item to be shipped or shipped free.. My advice for you is to just find non-amazon dealers out there with good feedback, prices, and reasonable shipping prices. They should be able to ship your items without needing to add on $25 dollars or more worth of merchandise.
