I often times ask people if they’re aware of Amazon Prime, only to be met with, “It’s just another Netflix or Hulu Plus subscription I don’t need.”
Oh, my loyal readers, you couldn’t be more wrong!
Admittedly, I was a late bloomer to this as well, but I have seen the light, Carol Ann, and I dove in with both feet. Amazon Prime is a multi-faceted value beyond almost anything I’ve purchased in recent years. What if I also told you that I haven’t watched the first movie on the service since I signed up three months ago?
Here’s the skinny: The subscription is $74.99 per year, which works out to be about $6/month.
Have you purchased ANYTHING from Amazon in the last year? I bet it cost more than $6 to ship, unless you did the “Slow Boat” option. We buy things here at DatacenterDude.com almost exclusively from Amazon, and trust inherently that the pricing there is going to be the best. If we’re not shopping at Amazon, we’re using it at local retailers to price compare, and either order it on the spot from Amazon, or get the retailer to price match.
Amazon Prime members receive UNLIMITED FREE TWO DAY SHIPPING on everything they purchase. This is hands-down one of the biggest benefits of having this. In the past couple of years alone, I have spent thousands upon thousands with Amazon, buying anything from shoes to professional photography gear to professional audio and podcasting equipment to high-end prosumer home storage and networking gear. I can only imagine A) how much faster I would have received a lot of this, and B) how much money I would have saved in shipping & handling costs.
Trust me, it will be some of the best $75/yr that you spend. Oh, and yes, you get access to 10’s of 1000’s of instant play movies accessible on a variety of platforms, including SmartTV’s, Roku, Playstation, and Xbox. Oh, and you also get complete access to the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library.
