Are you on the fence about signing up for Amazon Prime? I’ve been a member for several years now and can’t live without it! Today I’m sharing a few of the reasons why you need Amazon Prime.
I am an Amazon Prime associate. If you sign up or make a purchase through the links in this post, I will receive a small comission. The content and opinions in this post are my own.
This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for months as I use Amazon Prime all the time and want to share my excitement about it. It’s definitely made my life so much easier!
So what is it that makes an Amazon Prime membership so great? Glad you asked!
Two Day Shipping
Let’s start with the obvious. Most people know already that Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on any item marked “prime.”
Before Amazon, I rarely shopped online because I HATE paying for shipping! It usually makes me question the order enough to just not get it. But with free shipping, I can quickly order something I’m needing at a great price AND get it in two days (or less sometimes!).
I’ve gotten into a habit of checking Amazon whenever I randomly think of something I am needing or wanting. For example, the other day I forgot to buy razors at the store, so I found a good deal on Amazon.
Prime Music App
Last year I discovered the Amazon Prime Music app, which is free for members. It’s completely replaced Spotify and Pandora for me. They have a huge selection of music, and the best part is: NO COMMERCIALS!
Prime Early Access Deals
Every day, Amazon features a ton of Deals of the Day. Members get Prime Early Access Deals, where they get to see and purchase the deals before anyone else. The biggest advantage to this is for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Amazon runs some awesome deals on those days, and as a Prime member you are able to snatch them up before they are gone!
In addition to music streaming, you can also stream thousands of movies and TV shows. There is a large selection of Prime Video you can stream for free as a Prime member, as well as content that you can rent or buy.
We never rent movies from Redbox anymore, since we have the option to stream them using Prime or another service.
Amazon Basics is their own line of “basic” products. They have all sorts of items, from electronics to kitchen gadgets to pet supplies. We bought an Amazon Basics foam roller recently and it was about one-third of the price of a brand name one from Sports Authority.
Subscribe and Save
This a great feature to save on items you buy on a regular basis, such as vitamins, workout supplements, toiletries and more. You save up to 15% and can set up a schedule so you’ll receive more every 1 to 6 months.
Another really cool feature I’ve been wanting to try is the Dash Button. You can get them for household products, foods and more. For example, you can buy a Dash Button for laundry detergent. You place it in your laundry room and press it when you are running low. You’ll have a new bottle shipped to you! The Dash Button costs $5.99, but right now they have a deal where you get $5.99 off your first purchase, so it pays for itself!
Don’t have Amazon Prime yet? Give it a shot and try Amazon Prime with a 30-Day Free Trial. I think you’ll find it’s worth it!
