Life Saver For Gifts, and School Events/Projects
Amazon Prime has saved me on more than one occasion. Life more often than not is busy. I’m a wife, mommy, student, WordPress designer/developer, not to mention I have a full time job and a side gig as a travel agent. (Now that I’m reading all that it sounds totally insane.)
There have been times when I’ve either forgotten or not be able to go the store to pick up a birthday gift or supplies for a school events/projects and I’ve been able to easily order them from Amazon with free two-day shipping. For example, A couple weeks ago my daughter, Little Miss T, was having ‘nerd day’ at school and both she and my 3 year old had been sick for the weekend before so we weren’t really able to get out to the store. I went online found these nerdy glasses and some suspenders on Monday and I had them by Wednesday. It worked out perfectly since dress up day was Friday.
No Shipping Cost!
I HATE paying shipping. Please don’t ask why, I’m not totally sure. It’s just that when shipping is almost half the cost of whatever you are buying online it seems wrong. With Amazon Prime- there’s no shipping fee’s for two-day shipping. ♥♥♥ Big win!
Movies & TV Shows
The other added benefit that I’ve found is Amazon Prime includes access to watching thousands of movies and tv shows. Believe it or not, there are some tv shows and movies that aren’t on Netflix. Crazy! I know! For me, the benefit is in the pre-school shows like Tom The Tow Truck or Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood along with some movies (How the Grinch Stole Christmas! ) they have some seasonal movies/shows so it can very at times. Ever have an tired/cranky toddler out in public and you’re just trying to get through a store or finish up dinner? Even if it is sometimes my last resort it works like magic overtime.
If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. If you are a student like me, you can join Prime Student FREE Two-Day Shipping for College Students you’ll be able to get 50% off the cost of Prime and you get all the benefits of a regular Prime membership.
Between the time saving shopping, no shipping cost and access to thousands of tv shows and movies instantly, you can’t beat it. Do you have have Amazon Prime? What’s your favorite feature? If you don’t you should definitely consider checking it out!
