Why You Should Get Amazon Prime If You Haven't Already

 

     Ever since my husband and I got married ten years ago, we have only paid for cable twice and it was the basic cable that only shows like maybe twenty different channels. The second time we got cable, most of the channels we had were all in Spanish and well, we don't speak Spanish, so it would have mostly been a waste of our money, except it was in a cheaper bundle with our internet.

     After that internet promotion ran its course, we only had Netflix to watch. While Netflix is fine and all, it doesn't offer you all the shows that you want and the movies are ok.

     Four years ago, I decided to stay home from working. I had three kids and the oldest was still in pre-school, so, as a way to make up for not having a job, I began looking for ways to make a little extra cash or get free things to try out by giving an honest review. One of those apps that would give me free things was only beneficial if I had free shipping and handling. A friend of mine, who recommended the app,told me that it works really well with Amazon Prime because you get 2 day free shipping and handling on many of the products it has to offer.

     I was very hesitant at first. I didn't want to pay $99 for something that I didn't know if I liked, so I tried the risk free trial and just forgot to cancel it, so my membership started. I've been very glad it did!

     You see, Amazon Prime is more than just free shipping and handling. Amazon Prime offers you a way to send your loved ones who live away from you a gift that you were too hesitant to send because the heavier the gift, the more expensive it is to ship. Not only that, my husband and I love Amazon Prime Video. They are always constantly moving around their movies and which ones you can view which offers you more of a variety. If a show season isn't on Netflix, it very well might be on Amazon Prime. They also offer you channels that you can purchase and it still beats what you would pay for cable.

Ex: Even if the lowest that you would pay for basic cable was $15 a month, 15x12= $180 a year. $99 doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Now that was just for basic channels. Many people pay more than that, some closer to $200 to watch the same shows that they could get for less a month. I like watching the Hallmark Channel and in order to watch everything that isn't included on free prime, I could subscribe to that channel for $5.99 a month. So 12x5.99=71.88+$99= $170 for the whole year. That's still a ton less than $200 a month for $2400, a year.

     What has been a great and useful deciding factor for me is that I can password protect my account. Before I knew that, my children kept ordering PBS to watch The Wild Kratts seasons which weren't available to watch. Once I explained to Amazon what had happened, I was refunded for the amount and they helped me set up a password. That's great because now they can't order things without the password and I made it one that even I forget sometimes, so they won't remember it.
