A good day with Amazon Prime


I’ve recently had a good experience with Amazon Prime and thought I’d tell you about it.

Much like most of you I was beginning to get a little tired of the ‘Prime’ being shoved down my throat with a 30-day free trial ending in a rather expensive renewal (either monthly or yearly). However, having looked into the product a little more I can finally give in and say what a fantastic idea.

Basically it boils down to the first idea of Prime, this is what has been going on for years at Amazon. You pay a yearly fee and you get free Two-Day shipping on millions of items. However, there are other perks, one of which I find to be extremely useful;

  • No minimum order size (handy for cheap products that you need quickly)
  • Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and tv shows with Prime Instant Video (Oh hello Amazon, goodbye Netflix)
  • Finally, Read free books each month through Kindle First and Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

For a years worth of the above, it’s extremely cost effective, even if you only use the delivery thing once or twice a year you can certainly get your money’s worth in the 3 bullet points above.

It’s been a good experience and there’s usually complaints in this world. Please feel free to click the link below to give yourself a Free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, yes there is a cost after this but I think once you have explored the other benefits you’ll see how far your £79 a year really goes.

Oh and you can cancel your subscription before you have to pay anything, so if you aren’t sure/impressed then you are able to cancel when you want.

Happy shopping / reading / watching 🙂

Microsoft Books – You can also look for the latest Microsoft books focussing on Office 365 and Cloud Computing – some excellent authors out there willing to share their knowledge.
