We talked recently about Walmart’s new Shipping Pass (Check out the article Walmart Shipping Pass vs. Amazon Prime) and so I thought it was only fair that we go ahead and talk about why Amazon Prime is so awesome.
I have an Amazon Prime account for lots of reasons – mostly because I enjoy the convenience of Free 2-Day Shipping on just about anything I order. But there are SO many more perks that make Amazon Prime worth it to me.
Amazon Prime offers up a big benefit package for their $99/year price – and just recently they unrolled a monthly payment plan ($10.99/month) so you can get the freedom of Prime without the 1-Year commitment.
Here’s the lowdown if you’re deciding if Amazon Prime is right for you:
FREE 2-Day Shipping
With FREE Two-Day Shipping from Amazon Prime, you get unlimited deliveries with no minimum order size, and with 20 million eligible items, the options are practically limitless.
Prime Members get 20% OFF Diapers & Wipes when they create a child profile – Amazon Family is FREE for all Prime members.
Prime Pricing and Early Access to Lightning Deals
Select popular sale items are ONLY on sale if you’re a Prime member – this can really save you some money!
And if you’re competitive with those Lightning Deals – Prime is a MUST. Get 30 minutes early access to select Lightning Deals (this is awesome on Black Friday and around Christmas time!)
Movie & Video Streaming
Cutting cable and looking to supplement your Netflix or Hulu selection? Prime members get instant access to thousands of movies and TV shows at no additional cost, including popular Amazon Original Series. Watch on your computer, Kindle, Fire TV or other compatible devices.
Get unlimited access to tons of music – much like Spotify or Pandora services.
While non-Prime members can read Amazon Kindle books – Prime members get access to the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, where over 800,000 books are ready to be checked out for free. You get to borrow one a month – and keep it as long as you want.
Store a bajillion photos safely and securely in the Amazon Cloud Drive – and free up all that space on your computer to help it run fast again!
When you take into account the free shipping, the diaper savings, the entertainment package and special pricing perks – Amazon Prime makes sense for me. What do you think?
