If you pay $99 a year for your Amazon Prime membership and regularly use the 2-day delivery, it’s probably already worth it. But there are seven more benefits that you can get – and many people don’t even know about them!
If you use Netflix, you probably know that you can share your membership with other people. The same applies for Amazon Prime – there are a few caveats, and you can technically only share with one person, but it’s still good to know.
No-Rush Shipping Credit
If you’re a Prime member but don’t use the Prime delivery, you can save money. Select the no-rush delivery at checkout, and you’ll get digital credits for e-books, movies or Prime Pantry orders. How much credit you get depends on what you’re buying.
If two days is still too long for you, Prime Now offers two-hour delivery in a number of regions. And the best thing is, there’s no additional charge! Need something urgently but can’t leave the house? Amazon Prime is your friend!
Streaming Video and Music
If you ignored Amazon Music and Video up till now, you should really look into it. The assortment is surprisingly large, and you might find a few treasures there. The video add-on subscriptions give you access to premium selections from programs like Starz for just a few extra dollars per month.
Unlimited Photo Storage
This is probably the least known of all the Amazon Prime benefits. Your phone and computer are overflowing with pictures from your last vacation and your children’s school play? Put them on Amazon’s free unlimited cloud photo service.
Free Kindle Books
This is a small bonus for all those bookworms out there. Amazon has a library of 500,000 books, and each month they put a list together from which Prime members can borrow for free. And the titles are pretty varied.
Discounts on Groceries
With Amazon Prime Pantry, you can have a box (up to 45 pounds) of groceries delivered right to your door. The fee is a flat rate of $5.99, and you can get everything from detergent to coconut water at reasonable prices and without much hassle.
