Heads up Amazon shoppers, Amazon has raised the Super Saver shipping minimum. You now must spend $35 to get FREE Super Saving shipping rather than $25.

This makes it even more beneficial to join Amazon Prime. You can get a FREE one month trial right now.

Not only will you get FREE 2-day shipping with Prime, you also can borrow 1 FREE Kindle book at a time, and get unlimited Prime Instant Watch streaming.

One of my favorite things about Prime is that you can share the FREE 2-day shipping with up to 4 other people. The people you invite will not have access to Instant Watch or free Kindle book though.

You can stream Instant Watch through your Roku, Computer, Smart Phone, Xbox and more. My husband loves that you can also rent things off of Amazon and it will be instantly added to your watch list. This is our cable alternative.

If you need a streaming device, you can get a Roku 3 for $84.99 right now. This is the best price we have seen on the new Roku this year.

Amazon Prime is $79 for one year, making it $6.58 per month. That makes it $2 less per month or $24 less per year than Netflix and Hulu, with a lot more perks!

      If you are a student and have an EDU email account you can get an extra 6 months free trial! Unless that has changed. The price for prime is also cut in half for students!!

      • You’re right. You can get the free 2-day shipping, but student memberships do not include Instant Watch or free Kindle books.

        • NCMOM

          Maybe it is a glitch, but we have had the student membership for 3 years and we enjoy the benefits of instant watch and free Kindle books?? Maybe it has changed.

          • Deenie

            No, it’s not a glitch. The free 6 month Student prime does not offer streaming and Kindle books, but if you decide to pay for the Student Prime @$39 for the year then you get the the streaming and Kindle books.

            • NCMOM

              Thanks, at the student price, I feel like it is a steal! :) Love the student prime!!

            Are you able to share the shipping, streaming, or Kindle books?

        • Jessica LeShay Mason

          I get the instant watch and free kindle book with membership just not with the free trial.

      • Brooke

        Does an alumni.edu email address work?

        • Jessica LeShay Mason

          Yes it should.

    • Jenni P.

      I’m not seeing an option for a free trial at the link given, but it may be because we already had a free 30 day trial over the summer. Anyone know the fine print on the offer?

      • You are only eligible for a free trial once. Sorry about that! Prime really is a good deal though.

        • Jenni P.

          Okay. I figured it was something like that. Thanks for the reply.

    • Andrea B

      Thanks for the heads up! Guess I’ll be ordering from amazon less often with the higher minimum.

    • Lauren Wickersheim

      Does the student account not have the sharing option? I’ve never known I could share the shipping benefits.

      • I’m not sure if you can share the student membership. The student membership doesn’t include instant watch or free Kindle books, so I’d be surprise if you could share it.

        • Lauren Wickersheim

          I do get the instant watch, but I guess not the share.

      2 questions about the book rental part.
      1) Someone told me (possibly incorrrectly) that it is limited to one book per month. Is that true or can I check out as many books as I want as long as its one at a time?
      2) Which books are available for borrowing? Is it all of them, all but new releases, all but the popular ones, or is it just a collection of the less popular titles that aren’t making them much money anyways?

      • Laurel

        1)I believe it is one book per month.
        2) The book choices are not terribly good. It is not the full collection. Only the ones where the publishers have agreed to give away books for free. There are thousands and thousands of choices, but not a lot of big name ones.

      Oh that sucks! I have considered going the Prime route so this might put me over the edge…

      It says you can share with up to four household members or coworkers. So I’m assuming that means you have to have the same address on file? What if I wanted to share with my parents and I have their address on my account (although it’s not my primary one and it’s not associated with any of my credit cards)? I’d love to split this with my father and he wouldn’t be able to use the streaming part anyway.
