Have You Tried Amazon Prime Yet?

Last year I signed up for a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime and I loved it! I was able to watch thousands of movies for free! It was easy to sign up and easy to cancel after the 30 days were up. If you want free shipping and free movies, you might want to give it a try. It is well worth it.


With Amazon Prime you will be able to have free 2 day shipping on any order. I think this is such a great deal. I recently bought something from Amazon and the shipping price alone made my purchase way more than what I was planning. Shipping rates are constantly going up and I think taking advantage of this is a great way to save on those shipping costs. Even if its just for 30 days. 
You also can watch movies for free from a huge selections of movies. I loved this! Not only did I have Netflix at the time but having this as well made my movie selection even more exciting! I love movies so this was so much fun for me. 
If you read books through Kindle then this is another bonus for you. You can borrow Kindle books from the lending library on Amazon.
For you music lovers out there, you can stream unlimited songs, ad free. I love listening to music but I hate sitting through the ads. I know they are only a few seconds long but it is still annoying. With Prime you don't have to worry about ads during your music jam!

Cancel Anytime

Cancelling your free Prime membership is easy. All you do is log into your Prime account settings and click "Do Not Continue". Easy. If you sign up for the 30 day trial remember that you need to keep track of when your membership will end. If you don't cancel by the time the trial is over you will be automatically charged $99 for a year membership. If that does happen you can be refunded the full price if you have not purchased anything.

  1. Great tips. I have looked into Prime and I think that it is right up my alley. Going on the list of...things to do in the near future. Especially before Christmas time, this would pay for itself many times over.
