What are the benefits of Prime Membership you might be asking? I thought you would never ask!
Since everyone cares about themselves, right?, Let's talk about what you get out of this.
First of all there are the sweet deals from Prime Day today:
5% back in rewards with an Amazon Prime credit card.
Eligible Prime members can earn 5% back at Amazon.com with no credit card annual fees and no earning caps with either of the Amazon Prime credit cards.
So this will save you 5% on all of your shopping right there, kinda like a discount just for being your awesome self.
- FREE Two-Day Shipping.Over 100 million items that arrive two business days after they ship.This is a major perk of being a Prime member. Use this all the time when I need something fast.
- Prime Video
Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV episodes. Because who doesn't like watching stuff? I remember watching some shows with this, still do actually.
- Prime Music
I honestly have no used this that much, but if you have an Alexa then maybe this ties in with that and you can listen to tons of stations and music with it?
Enjoy unlimited reading on any device, with over a thousand books, magazines, comics, articles, Kindle Singles, and more.
I use this, a lot. Read tons of books, and I highly recommend this, I even have the Kindle Unlimited Subscription to read as many books as I want whenever I want to.
Free game content every month, member exclusive discount on new release video games and loads more.
Twitch is a live streaming video platform owned by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon. You can watch people live stream their gaming or other activities here, and interact with them and their community, a really cool place. I like how you can subscribe to one person per month with Prime, and they get some support from you for free.
30-minute early access to Lightning Deals!
Here is what I found explaining the "lightning deal":
Lightning Deals can be found throughout Amazon.com, and are available on the Today's Deals page or Prime Day page. Lightning Deals are available, one per customer, until either the promotion period for the deal expires or all the available inventory is claimed.
Since Lightning Deals are time-sensitive, it's important to complete your order as soon as possible. You can sign up to watch a Lightning Deal up to 24 hours before it begins.
When a Lightning Deal is available, here's what you'll see:
Note: On Prime Day, all Deals are exclusive to Prime Members
- The item featured in the deal.
- The promotional discount amount and final price (not including tax).
- A status bar indicating the percentage of deals that have already been claimed.
- A timer showing how long you have to add the item to your Cart and claim the promotional discount.
- An "Add to Cart" button if there are available promotional discounts.
Note: When all the promotional discounts for a Lightning Deal are held by other customers, you'll see a Join Wait list button and the status bar will show that 100% of the promotional discounts are currently being held in other customers' Carts or have already been used to purchase the deal.
FREE unlimited photo storage for you and five others.
Plus, upgraded search helps you find photos fast.
I have not used this service, but I may give it a try in the future.
And that is what is in it for you if you become a Prime Member, I have been a prime member for years, and I will continue to be with Amazon as long as they continue to offer great experience to their customers and great deals for their members, thank you Amazon!
