We’ve had an Amazon Prime Membership now for about 3 years. I was definitely late to the bandwagon. Many of my friends and family had been Amazon Prime Members for a few years before us, but the $99 Annual Membership Fee was a lot to swallow for our tight budget. We finally figured out how to make it work with our budget, and now, it’s a part of our routine.
There are some great deals to be had with Amazon Prime. I find many things that my family uses, like Fabric Softener, are the same price or less than our local stores – even with coupons. By using Amazon Prime, I save even more time & money because I’m not having to waste gas driving to the store. I just have to wait two days, and the items I’ve ordered show up on my doorstep! I’ve also been able to take advantage of frequent Diaper Deals and use electronic coupons, which is always nice!
An Amazon Prime Membership has many benefits, from free streaming of thousands of movies & TV shows via Amazon Video, to free streaming Music, to UNLIMITED photo storage (so useful!), to many items with FREE same day shipping! Many items also have additional savings for Prime Members, like up to 20% off diaper subscriptions!
Our Amazon Prime Membership is a MUST-HAVE for Holiday Shopping. You can’t beat the deals on toys, games and other gifts available on Amazon, and with a Prime Membership, you get Early Access to all of the HOT Lightening Deals. If you’ve followed the blog for a while, you know I post Lightening Deals during the Holiday Season. Those items go fast, with some selling out instantly. Amazon Prime members get a 30 minute head start on ordering! The FREE 2-Day Shipping helps get your gifts fast so you can get them wrapped & under the tree in no time so you can enjoy your Holidays stress-free!
If you’ve been wanting to try Amazon Prime, but have been scared off by the price of the membership, I’ve got good news for you! Amazon recently announced a Discounted Amazon Prime Membership to those customers who receive government assistance via Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards! The membership is only $5.99/month (instead of $8.25), and you can requalify every year up to 4 times! In the future, Amazon will be offering this discount to non-EBT card program members. This membership enjoys the exact same benefits as the full-price Prime Membership, including FREE 2-Day Shipping, Amazon Music, Amazon Video, Amazon Photos, Amazon Reading, Audible Channels for Prime, Kindle First, Twitch Prime, Lightening Deals Early Access, FREE Prime Same-Day Delivery on Select Items, Prime Now Delivery & Special Savings!
