I’ve told you before how much I love Amazon Prime. But I’ve learned that a lot of people don’t realize all the extra secret Amazon Prime features that you get when you sign up. In particular, here are 3 little-known benefits that make Prime a no-brainer. (Affiliate links are present. See my disclosure.)
1. Amazon Instant Watch
Amazon has thousands of free movies and TV shows for Prime users. We use Amazon Instant Watch daily! We don’t have cable or satellite and we don’t miss it a bit.
We’ve enjoyed complete seasons of Downton Abbey, John Adams, and Band of Brothers. Amazon has tons of shows for the preschool set (think Curious George, Dora and Blues Clues) plus lots of other classics. This weekend, we introduced our kids to John Candy and Planes, Trains and Automobiles – hilarious!
Between Amazon Instant Watch and Netflix, we can usually find a movie or a show that works for the whole family.
2. Share your Prime shipping with up to 4 friends
Yep – you can give Prime shipping benefits to 4 of your friends or family members. How cool is that? I’ve found Prime shipping to be so convenient – I order one or two small things daily off of Amazon.
If I didn’t have Prime, I’d probably end up spending more overall just to make the $35 minimum for free shipping (or pay for the shipping). With Prime, I only buy exactly what I need – no impulse purchases!
How much will your family love you if you share this convenience with them? You’ll be a superstar!
(By the way, you can’t share your Instant Watch benefits.)
3. (Potential) Sunday delivery
This is another huge feature. Amazon has recently started delivering Prime orders on Sundays in many areas! I was shocked the first time we had an Amazon box on our doorstep upon returning from church, but now it’s become a normal thing.
Their logistics are seriously lightning fast. I have placed orders on a Saturday afternoon that arrived on Sunday morning.
I really hate wasting time and gas in the car and lugging kids to the store. Amazon Prime helps me keep these trips to a minimum. That’s a great use of my resources and a major Early Bird Mom goal.
Do you use Amazon Prime? What’s your favorite feature?
