Amazon Prime is one of those memberships that just keeps on giving. It started with the free shipping but is quite a bit more now. In addition to free two-day shipping (and the overnight shipping for $3.99 – even on big items), Amazon Prime also includes the Kindle Lending Library, Amazon Prime Instant Video (an online video library similar to Netflix), earlier access to Amazon deals, free access to over a million songs, and free unlimited photo storage! In addition, you can share it with 4 family members (at different addresses) who can also take advantage of the free shipping benefits – but no free video, etc.
Last year, Amazon hiked the price of Amazon Prime from $79 to $99. For people that use anyone of the many Prime benefits, that still is a great price for what it provides. One such case is our family – we are overseas but have a membership because the free shipping gives us great opportunity to get gifts to our many, many family members. It also allows us to take advantage of some of the other features as well.
For today only, Amazon is offering a one-year’s subscription to Amazon Prime for $72 – down from the usual $99! It is only available to new customers so if you were waiting for a chance to try it out for a year, today gives you 27 reasons to do so with the savings.
