Thanks for the suggestion Derek but that's a pass for me, especially at that price point. $14/for 10 transactions won't really be feasible (unless I'm selling large ticket items, etc).
Honestly, I'm getting sick and tired of shopify relying on app devs to fulfill even the most basic of features. 3 years ago, if you have a problem they will try to sort it. Now, they just refer you to an app that costs an arm and a leg, just to fulfill a simple function.
If you really need this without an app you could sidestep this with the high weight trick
This of course only works BEFORE checkout since you cannot modify checkout pages without shopify plus or clever js.
If need to explore this method for your store contact me at email in signature.
I'm also open to commisions to make this into a forum tutorial.

No Problem, remember the forums could alway use a tutorial post for your theme with images|video of setup and problem<=>solutions.
Alice Land, am I missing something? I can't seem to find the solution you are referring to.
UPDATE: Well, I did some digging (more like stalking Paul's profile) and found what Alice Land was referring to. Very ingenious way of doing it Paul! I plan to make a product titled FREE SHIPPING TOKEN and people can just add that to their order to get free shipping. And if you have an app like Locksmith, it would be great since you can restrict access to it further.
No thanks to you SHOPIFY!
PS: I don't know why Paul's reply has disappeared here. It could be he removed it himself or worst...someone doesn't like this trick to spread.
The trick is to create an item and name it something like "free shipping". Add an unreasonably large weight value to it (say 7,000kg). On your weight based shipping, create a free shipping rate for anything more than 7,000kg. When they add the "free shipping" on their shopping cart, it would allow them to access the free shipping rates... You can then hide your item on search and collection so that you can provide that link to anyone you wish to get free shipping...or get an app like locksmith, to make the "free shipping" available to certain customer groups only. This free up the discount code, so they can use it.
I have mine setup to make it a bit more complex by using the weight of the products as their prices. That way, where they can even add free products when they spent X amount of $$$.
I personally think that the discounts features could be vastly improved if shopify wished.
% off + Free shipping is an obvious place to start.
Stacking discounts could be more complex for both devs and end users, as you would have to configure complex rules to stop people for messing you about and getting massive discounts.
