Surprising Perks You Get With An Amazon Prime Membership

January 04, 2018

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it isn’t always easy to run to the store at the drop of a hat. Long gone are the days where multitudes of people rush to the store to grab gifts for friends and shop for daily necessities. Thanks to the Internet, anything you could possibly need is only one click away. It has become a way of life for families all across the globe because it simplifies tasks that could take up quite a bit of time.

One place that has become a one-stop shop in the online world is Amazon. Typically, after you place your order, it’s all about the waiting game. If you’re impatient like me, that is no easy feat. You’d rather your items arrive as soon as possible! Thanks to the introduction of Amazon Prime, you can say "adios" to weeks of waiting.

A $99 annual membership with Amazon Prime allows you to have any order shipped for free in two days. While that seems like the grandest deal on the planet, it gets even more spectacular. There are even more perks included in this membership that I knew nothing about until I got signed up for myself!

Free Music Streaming

With this membership, you’ll have access to free music streaming through their Amazon Music app. This app is quite similar to Spotify and Pandora but free of ads. You can search virtually any song and play it instantly. You can also listen to premade playlists of your favorite artists or a radio station tailored to your personal music preference. It’s a gem, I tell you!

Access To Early Deals

As a member, you will have a 30-minute early access to certain Amazon Lightning Deals. The Lightning Deals are limited and go quite fast so it’s one heck of a deal to have this added perk!

Movies and TV Streaming

Much like the ever-popular Netflix, Amazon Prime Video is now on the scene. You are able to stream thousands of movies and television programs. It’s a fantastic way to stay caught up on your favorite shows or beloved movies.

Unlimited Photo Storage

Thanks to smartphones, digital photos are more popular than ever. If you’re like me, you’ve found your phone storage filling up quicker than you can blink! At no additional cost, you can upload as many photos as you would like to the Amazon Cloud Drive app or With The Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app.

Book Lending

Members can borrow books from the Kindle Lending Library every month. These books are available on any device and only require your Amazon Prime login information. If you’re a reader, this will be highly beneficial!
