With so many subscription services out there these days, it can be hard to figure out which way to go. But among the many options, one stands out that you should absolutely give a try, and that’s Amazon Prime. The program offers customers a broad range of services that help set it above and beyond the rest. Here’s a handful of reasons why you should give it a shot.
1. Insanely Fast Shipping
Did you forget your anniversary or a have a birthday for a loved one and you need that gift (basically) riiiiiight now? Well, Amazon Prime will be your new best friend. When you sign up for Amazon Prime, you get unlimited two-day shipping on everything you order. On top of that, you also can get same-day and one-day shipping on certain orders (Check here for details on what’s eligible.)
2. Free Shipping
Getting your packages fast is great, but getting them that quickly for a cheap price is even better. With Amazon Prime, you won’t just get fast shipping, you’ll get free two-day shipping on all of your orders. Once you sign up, you’ll never have to worry about those extra shipping charges at checkout that make what you thought was an affordable purchase into an expensive luxury.
3. Prime Video
In this new era of streaming, “Peak TV,” and Hollywood’s shared movie universes, Amazon Prime offers you the chance to check out some of the best television and movies out there. Between Prime Original series like the award-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, or the Oscar-winning, Amazon-produced Manchester By the Sea, Prime Video has thousands of options in nearly every genre of TV and movies you can think of. That’s not all: Prime offers you the chance to get access to networks like HBO, Showtime, and Starz, and in the future, they’ll have their own Lord of The Rings series.
4. Prime Reading
Amazon Prime isn’t just for your streaming entertainment pleasure. Are you a big fan of the latest fiction bestseller, biography, or comic book release? With Prime Reading, you will get access to a library of thousands of titles, and each month you can download an editor’s pick free of charge, and then keep it as long as you’d like. Prime Reading also allows you to jump from device to device and keep your place in whatever book, comic, or magazine you’re reading.
5. All the Extra Prime Benefits
The free shipping and Prime Video are great reasons to join, but Amazon Prime has plenty of other benefits and programs you’ll get access to as a member. Between getting access to thousands of songs and albums on Prime Music, and unlimited photo storage, you also can get access to Prime Rewards, which gives you discounts and money back when you sign up for an Amazon Prime credit card.
