Aren’t I witty…
In all seriousness, it is the perfect time to try out Amazon Prime.
Every household can try out a free month of Amazon Prime once. If you haven’t had your free trial, there is no better month to get it than December! For the next 30 days you’ll get FREE 2 day shipping on any order. Think of how awesome that is with small deals that pop up to not need a minimum order to get free shipping. Or even better as Christmas gets closer and you realize that you forgot a gift… you have until Saturday before and your gift will still arrive in time with no shipping costs!
There are other benefits to Amazon Prime that you also get to enjoy during your free trial:
- Instantly watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with titles for everyone
- Borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library
- Get unlimited FREE two-day shipping with no minimum order size
Your free trial of Amazon Prime will convert to a paid membership after 30 days, but you can go in and set it to not convert at any time. You can even do it one minute after signing up for the trial. If you decide to keep Prime it is $79 per year, but can be shared with up to 4 other household members. If you share the cost it’s not so bad. (We share ours with our parents.)
If you have a student (or are one yourself) they can get 6 months of free 2-day shipping with Amazon Student. You won’t get the free streaming videos or kindle books, but you at least get the awesome shipping.
