What It Includes:

Is it worth it?:
Free 2-Day Shipping
I added an item that was $5.49 to my cart and my shipping was $6.49. That’s for one item. So if you bought, (24) $5 items, Amazon Prime has paid for itself.
If you don’t currently buy a lot on Amazon, with Prime you will find yourself buying more things. Amazon has great deals! They are my go-to site for price comparisons, electronics, some household products, and more.
They also price match many deals at Target and Best Buy. You’ll buy it on Amazon instead because you get FREE 2-day shipping.
Unlimited Instant Watch
So, Amazon Prime has already paid for itself if you purchase at least (24) $5 items, but you will you also get Unlimited Instant Watch. Instant Watch is basically the same thing as Netflix. It has a ton of same content plus additional movies and television shows.
For a price compassion, Netflix and Hulu are $8 per month. Amazon Prime, including Instant Watch, will be $9.91 a month so just slightly more.
Borrow Kindle Books
If you love Kindle Books, this is a huge perk. You can borrow (1) book at a time. The library of books doesn’t include everything, but there are great options. You also get one free book per month too. This month there are six different titles to choose from.
Amazon Prime Price:
To get all the perks, the best deal is to pay for the year. It’s currently $119, but you can try Prime for free before committing!
