Is Amazon Prime Worth It?
No Minimum For Free Shipping
It's a catch 22 with Prime. Either pay for shipping on orders under $49 or strategize to get your cart total above that number avoiding the cost. This scenario would often lead me to getting things I didn't need and spending more than I intended. One downside of Prime is the large volume of packages I receive since signing up, as I usually order only one item at a time. Now that I think of it, my mailman has been looking more buff lately.
More Than Just Free Shipping
A Prime membership also has some neat kickbacks to go along with the amazing shipping options. By choosing regular speed shipping, still free, you can earn credits of $1 for movie, music, television, & e-book downloads. Another benefit is you can choose the no rush shipping to receive a Prime pantry credit of $5.99. So if you buy media on Amazon or use Prime Pantry, a Prime membership may actually pay for itself.
Sharing Is Caring & Worth It
You can split you Prime membership with your family. Yes that's right, you can all get the advantage of 2 or sometimes 1 day shipping for free! As long as your family isn't more than four people. Another caveat is that you can only have the Prime video and kindle service for the primary account holder. Still this makes a Prime membership all that more worth it.
