8 Amazon Prime Benefits You Can Get for Cheap
In order to get FREE Super Saver Shipping, you have to spend $35, but for less than $10 per month, you can get FREE 2-day shipping PLUS there are a TON more awesome benefits!
I LOVE the free shipping benefits. Especially when I’m Christmas shopping! I’m able to shop from home and skip the crazy crowds on nearly ALL of our Christmas gifts. It saves me gas, money, and time!
8 Awesome Amazon Prime Benefits
1. FREE 2-Day shipping on Eligible Items
As an Amazon Prime member, you’ll receive free 2-day shipping on items purchased from or fulfilled by Amazon.com! That means anything that say “eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $35” will ship for FREE, with no minimum purchase and no limit on how many orders!!
I don’t remember the last time I paid to ship something. It’s fantastic! Shipping a single order via 2-day shipping without Prime will have costs STARTING at around $10 a package, and that’s if you get a deal!
2. Cheap 1-Day Shipping
Are you in a hurry to get something? Amazon Prime members can upgrade to one-day shipping for their Prime eligible orders for only $3.99! My husband loves this perk for the time-sensitive, work-related purchases that come up every once in a while.
3. Early Access to Lightning Deals
Lightning deals are special deals that come up on Amazon every once in a while. These deals are time-sensitive and there is usually a limited quantity available, so it’s important to act fast.
As a Prime Member, you’ll have a big advantage because you’ll get 30-minutes of early access to select lightning deals. This could allow you to snag up some great deals really easily!
4. Free Kindle Books
Amazon Prime members have access to the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, which allows you to borrow 1 book per month for FREE and with no due date! Over 500,00 books are included. You can read it on your Kindle, or from any of your devices with a Kindle App on them!
Download one of the free Kindle apps to start reading Kindle books on all your devices. The Kindle app is available for every major smartphone, tablet, and computer. That means with the free Kindle Reading apps, you can buy a Kindle book once, and read it on any device with the Kindle app installed. And of course, you can also read that same Kindle book on a Kindle, Kindle Touch, or Kindle Fire if you own one. (I LOVE my Kindle Fire…)
5. Benefits for the Whole Family
You can share your Amazon Prime Shipping Benefits with 4 family members (who do not need to live in your same house). $99 split 5 ways is only $20.00 a person (plus YOU get all the other benefits).
6. Unlimited Cloud Storage
Amazon Prime Members have Amazon Cloud Drive which provides unlimited secure online storage, automatic photo backup, and lets you access your photos anywhere: on your phone, computer, tablet, or any Fire device.
7. Free Music
Prime Music gives Amazon Prime Members access to over a million songs that they can listen to free online or offline! And now there are Prime Stations that you can personalize to your own taste with unlimited skips and no ads and no extra cost!
8. Stream Hundreds of Movies & TV Shows
Prime Instant Video includes free streaming of movies and popular TV shows. Available for instant streaming on Kindle Fire HD, as well as Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, iPad, Roku, and on hundreds of TVs, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and on the Web.
I personally think Amazon Instant Video has a better selection than Netflix, but you can check out this list for yourself, before making any commitments. The ones here are Eligible For FREE instant Streaming with your Prime Membership. You can also download and stream movies and shows offline.
