    5 Secret Amazon Prime Perks You Don’t Know About
    The subscription service is about much more than free shipping—and this weekend, from Friday at Midnight EST through Sunday at 11:59 PM local time, Prime membership is being offered at a discount of more than 25 percent. To celebrate the company's two Golden Globes for its original digital show Mozart in the Jungle, Prime membership is available for just $73 (it's regularly $99).

    Great, but I buy one or two things a year from Amazon.

    I use the Prime feature all the time.

    I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon now that I have it, I just check with them first to see if they have it. It's great getting the stuff no later than 2 days.

    I have also been using the streaming music service a lot.

    I have also used the video streaming a little bit too.

    No, I don't pay any extra.

    I don't watch too many movies/shows, so I have no problem only watching the Prime shows. Same with the music.

    I paid my 77 bucks last year, and haven't paid anything on top of that.


    I do think you get charged for some movies and tv shows, but I think it's a reduced price.

    No. Most is free. It's an incredible value.

    I can't believe I'm saying this but Dave in this single instance is correct. If I need anything, I use my app to located it, click buy and it shows up two days later. Incredible service.

    Amazon prime movies ( that aren't prime and free ) are still cheaper than Netflix - Dish or Blockbuster .

    Average is 2.99 which is about what they were when the movie stores were still around .

    This... and I only use the free shipping. There are certain bills I don't mind paying, my Prime account is one of them.

    I was hesitant at the membership at first but after a year of having it.... worth every penny . I use it primarily for shopping and streaming movies .

    At Christmas, my sister was bitching about Christmas shopping. I said that I haven't set foot in a mall in over a decade. She says, "How does that Amazon thing work?" I didn't know what she meant. She has never been on Amazon! I looked at her like she had a arm growing out of her forehead. :jj:

    I restored an old tractor 3 years ago - completely rebuilt the manual 8 speed trans - Amazon had every last aftermarket Timken open and closed needle bearing sets I needed for the axles and gears.... never had to leave the house .

    Here's the tractor '79 Wheel Horse back to new with a snow a blower attachment I picked up from a guy in Syracuse NY .
