All of the Amazon Prime benefits
Enjoy all of the perks of being and Amazon Prime Member
We all know that Amazon Prime is amazing, 2 day shipping, but did you know that there are a ton of other benefits?
Try it for 30 days, what have you got to lose?
For me, it all started with a 30 day trial back in 2005. I needed xmas presents in a hurry and I saw that prime included free 2 day shipping, better yet, there was a 30 day trial that allowed me to try it out. I thought I was going to use up the trial and cancel, up until that point I hadn’t ordered much from Amazon. I was pleased enough that I’m still a member. The 2 day Amazon Prime shipping was great and since I’ve joined, they’ve added a ton of other perks to keep my interest. Yes, they did up the price from $79 to $99 but the price is well worth it.
- FREE Two-Day Shipping on eligible items to addresses in the contiguous U.S. – Did you know that if Amazon does not deliver within 2 days you get a credit? Either in the form of a free month or money off of your next purchase. They have only let me down a few times but resolved it quickly. The cost benefit of having things shipped that quickly is well worth the price alone. 2 day shipping is equivalent to USPS priority mail which has a minimum cost of 5.95 per package, if you get 2 things a month, it’s paid for.
- FREE Same-Day Delivery in eligible zip codes. – If you happen to live in an area close to an amazon warehouse, they can get you the package the same day.
- Prime Now: Get FREE two-hour delivery or scheduled delivery on over 10,000 items, from groceries to electronics and more. Plus, get free delivery from your favorite local stores. Available in eligible zip codes only. – Called Prime Now, it’s only available in limited areas, but their reach is expanding. Imagine having groceries delivered within hours.
- Amazon Restaurants: Delivery from popular local restaurants to Prime members in eligible ZIP codes. – Available in limited areas, Amazon prime includes a food delivery service, similar to www.grubhub.com
- FREE Release-Date Delivery: FREE Release-Date Delivery on eligible pre-order items delivered on their release date to ZIP codes within the continental U.S. – This is perfect for movies or video games, no more waiting in line at gamestop or best buy to get games the day they come out, Amazon will have them at your door that day.
- Prime Video: unlimited streaming of movies and TV episodes for paid or free trial members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. – One of my favorite perks of being a prime member. They have movies and TV shows and the library is expanding. Similar to Netflix, which is priced at 7.99 per month, $96ish per year, if you got Amazon Prime only for the video service, you’d only be spending approximately 3.00 more per year for free shipping as well as the other perks. http://amzn.to/2CbpLGd
- Prime Music: unlimited, ad-free access to hundreds of Prime Playlists and more than a million songs for members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. – Similar to Spotify or Pandora, the prime music is great, a vast library with a ton of songs. http://amzn.to/2E10KhL
- Prime Photos: Secure unlimited photo storage and enhanced search and organization features in Amazon Drive for you and the members of your Family Vault. – This is a great feature, you can order prints of your pictures and have them delivered with the same 2 day amazon prime service, as well as share the upload links to your friends and family, I’ve used this a bunch of times. http://amzn.to/2C13dvd

- Prime Reading: You can borrow books, magazines, and more from the Prime Reading catalog and read them on your Fire tablet, Kindle e-reader, or the Kindle reading apps for iOS and Android. -Another great feature, on any device you can borrow books and the library is extensive.
- Amazon First Reads: Early access for members in the U.S. to download a new book for free every month from the Amazon First Reads picks. For more information, go to Amazon First Reads. You can also purchase hardcover titles at exclusive prices. – It’s like having a barnes and noble on call, you can borrow books before anyone else can get them.

- Twitch Prime: Members get exclusive discounts on physical games pre-orders and new releases. Twitch.tv users who link their Amazon Prime account get ad-free viewing on Twitch, a free Twitch channel subscription every month, and exclusive access to free game content.
- Membership Sharing: Two adults living in the same household can create an Amazon Household to share certain Amazon Prime benefits. -I’ve used this alot in the past, you can link people in the same house so you don’t have to share your actual amazon prime username and password, that way everyone in the house can enjoy free 2 day shipping.
- Prime Rewards: Eligible Prime members can earn 5% back at Amazon.com using the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or the Amazon Prime Store card. Alternatively, all Prime members earn 2% rewards with Amazon Prime Reload. – I have both the prime rewards and the prime store card, the cash back is worth it alone.
All in all, I believe that Amazon prime is an amazing deal, I’d highly recommend it for anyone who’s considering it, at the very least a 30 day trial would be worth checking it out.
