Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime

I have been an Amazon Prime member since my days in college. You may be thinking, “Wait Amazon Prime has not been around since the age of the dinosaurs!”, and you would be right. In 2010 I made the decision to go back to college while working full time and raising a family which is a full time job in itself.

Amazon Prime had helped me get things I needed at college that was, in some cases, impossible to find locally.  It was by no means an easy journey going to work full time and completing college but Amazon Prime definitely made it easier for my family.

Finances were and still are tight for a family of 7 and having access to all the Amazon Prime features allowed me to enjoy music as I studied with Amazon music, allowed me to upload my family memories to Amazon Photo’s from my phone and Kindle devices.

College books were also used on my Kindle and even uploaded to my kindle app on my phone and computer.

Now is the perfect time t sign up for an Amazon Prime account. If you are a student you can get a 6 month free trial and then it becomes only $49 per month after that. That is 50% less than the regular price.

So what are some of my favorite benefits of Amazon Prime.

Prime Delivery – FREE Two-Day Shipping on over 50 million items, FREE Same-Day and 2-hour delivery in select areas, and FREE Release-Date Delivery on eligible pre-order items.

Prime Video – Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV episodes at no additional cost. Granted there is also the rent and buy option for new releases not included in Prime. If you are on the go there is even a way to temporarily download the movie to watch while you are travelling. This is a big deal for me and having a family of 5 kids as we can simply log onto a device and stream a show to keep them entertained during the travel downtime.

Prime Music – It has a growing selection of 2 million songs – always ad-free. If that is not enough then unlock more with Amazon Music Unlimited at an exclusive discount. I love this feature especially when I am travelling.

Prime Photos – FREE unlimited photo storage for you and five others. Plus, upgraded search helps you find photos fast.

Over the coming days I will be going through some of the services and tell a little more about why I love them.
