I’m a heavy user of Amazon Prime – just the savings on shipping alone makes it worth it. The original price used to be $75 but Amazon recently raised the price to $99/year – except for today, where it’s discounted to $72. In my opinion, Prime is as essential as Netflix or a cell phone – the Prime subscription includes all the following for free:
- Two-Day Shipping on stuff you buy from Amazon
- Unlimited streaming on music
- Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows (Prime Instant Video)
- Unlimited photo storage (Amazon Cloud Drive)
- Selected Kindle books each month (Kindle First and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library)
All of tyhis is frankly worth $99/year to me, which is why I renew my subscription every year. If you’re an existing Prime member like me, this deal doesn’t apply – but for anyone interested in trying Prime out, this is the time. Pull the trigger and try it for yourself.
