Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Amazon Prime

Some  might know Amazon Prime for its free two-day shipping while others know it as one of the on-demand video streaming services available in the market.

But there’s so much more to Prime than free shipping and unlimited access to thousands of movies and TV shows.  There’s a bunch of other perks included in your $99/year Prime Subscription and let me break it down for you one by one.

FREE two-day shipping

Like I said, Prime is best known for its free and fast shipping.  This is the main star that attracts more and more subscribers every day.  With Amazon Prime, you get fast, free two-day shipping on over 50 million eligible items.

FREE two-hour shipping

Prime Now is an Amazon service that is exclusive to Prime members only in select cities and offers more than 25, 000 items across 25 categories, including household items, groceries, electronics, gifts, seasonal items and more.  Not only that, you can also order food from different Amazon restaurants and have it delivered to your doorstep within one hour.

Membership Sharing

You can actually share your Prime membership to other members of your family.  If you sign up for Amazon Household, you can invite another adult family member and up to four child profiles to share select Prime benefits.

Instant Access to Video Streaming with Amazon Video

You don’t need to pay for another video streaming service or cable when you already have Prime.  Your subscription will include instant access to thousands of movies and TV shows  on Amazon Video at no additional cost.  You can even download your favorite movies and shows to watch offline anytime, anywhere to your device (smart TVs, Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, tablets and Android devices).

On-demand, ad-free music streaming with Prime Music

Listen to over two million songs and thousands of playlists for free with your Prime Membership – anytime, anywhere and from any device.  Prime Music allows you to download your songs and playlists for offline playback.

Unlimited listening to Original Audio Series with Audible

Your Prime subscription will also give you instant access to Audible – original series, comedy shows, news, talks and more.

Unlimited Reading on any Device with Prime Reading

If you’re not a fan of audio entertainment, you have unlimited access to over a thousand books, current issue magazines, comics, Kindle Singles and more with Prime Reading.

FREE Unlimited Photo Storage

Your membership also comes with Prime Photos, which lets you store unlimited photos securely and for free.  You can even share the free storage with 5 family members or friends.

Amazon Dash Buttons

Prime Members have exclusive access to the Dash Buttons, a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite products and essentials with a single press of a button.

Early Access to Select Amazon Lightning Deals

Last but not the least, you’ll get 30-minute early access to select Lightning Deals offered on the site.
