Amazon Prime is Cheaper than Netflix – With Better Benefits!


In order to get FREE Super Saver Shipping, you now have to spend $35!!  With Prime, there is no Minimum Purchase!

I’ve been a member of Amazon Prime for 2 years now.  I LOVE the free shipping benefits.  They saved Christmas!  I was able to shop from home on about 95% of our gifts, and not only did I save gas, I also saved time!  And by combining Amazon Prime shipping and the great Amazon Deals we post about I got some killer deals!

Being a Amazon Prime member has some GREAT benefits:

The $79 cost for Amazon Prime

  • In order to get FREE Super Saver Shipping, you now have to spend $35!!  With Prime, there is no Minimum Purchase!
  • $79 averages to $6.58 per month
  • You can get a FREE 30-day trial membership for Amazon Prime, which means the $79 is actually for 13 months, which is $6.07 per month.
  • Netflix costs $7.99 per month.  Switching from Netflix to Amazon Prime saves you almost $17 a year, without any of the other perks!  I personally think Amazon Instant Video has a better selection than Netflix, but you can check out this list for yourself, before making any commitments.  The ones here are Eligible For FREE instant Streaming with your Prime MembershipNewer movies include Hunger Games, Expendibles 2, Avengers, oh, and did I mention they have the EXCLUSIVE rights to Downton Abbey?
  • You get FREE 2-Day shipping on items purchased from or fulfilled by Amazon.com!
    That means anything that say “eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25″ will ship for FREE, with no minimum purchase and no limit on how many orders!!  I don’t remember the last time I paid to ship something.  It’s fantastic!  Shipping a single order via 2-day shipping will have costs STARTING at around $10 a package, and that’s if you get a deal!
  • Are you in a hurry to get something?  Amazon Prime members can upgrade to one day shipping for their Prime eligible orders for only $3.99!
  • Amazon Prime members have access to the Kindle Lending Library, which allows you to borrow 1 book per month for FREE!  You can read it on your Kindle, or from any of your devices with a Kindle App on them!
    Download one of the free Kindle apps to start reading Kindle books on all your devices. The Kindle app is available for every major smartphone, tablet, and computer. That means with the free Kindle Reading apps, you can buy a Kindle book once, and read it on any device with the Kindle app installed. And of course, you can also read that same Kindle book on a Kindle, Kindle Touch, orKindle Fire if you own one.  (I LOVE my Kindle Fire…)
  • You can share your Amazon Prime Shipping Benefits with 4 family members (who do not need to live in your same house).  $79 split 5 ways is  only $15.80 a person (plus YOU get all the other benefits).
