Is Amazon Prime Worth Getting?
I’ve had several of my Canadian mom friends recently ask me about Amazon Prime, and if it’s worth getting?
I HATE going out and shopping in stores, so anything that saves me that agony, I am all for. Shipping costs in Canada is INSANE, so with the Amazon Prime, you can get free 2 day shipping on tons of items.
$25 Free Amazon Gift Card Give Away
Before we go any further, did you know that right now I am doing a free give away for a $25 Amazon Gift Card?
Canadian Rotating Postal Strike
This Christmas especially with all the Postal problems and the Rotating Postal Strike going on right now – I think the Amazon Prime membership is a necessary tool for busy moms
When you sign up for the Prime membership – you do get a free 30 days trial, so it won’t actually cost you anything extra to get your Christmas Shopping done. Then if you like the ease of having stuff shipped to your house, you can join with either a monthly (7.99/mo) or yearly (79/year) membership.
It’s not just the free 2 day shipping that you get with your membership, you get:
- Prime Music – Stream over one million songs, and hundreds of playlists and stations. (I’m listening right now as I write this)
- Prime Videos – Watch and download Amazon Originals
- Early Access Deals – Get 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals on Amazon.ca.
- Amazon Photos – Free unlimited photo storage with anywhere access.
- Twitch Prime – Free in-game loot, monthly subscriptions, and more.
Prime 30 Day Free Trial
If you haven’t don’t have an Amazon.ca Prime membership, and you’re planning on doing a bunch of your Christmas shopping online (like I am). It would really be worth signing up for the 30 day free trial, especially with the current Canadian Postal Strike (which always seems to happen at Christmas time, doesn’t it).
Get all your holiday shopping done, while you’re sitting at home in your PJ’s sipping some wine 😉
Black Friday Deals
Black Friday/Cyber Monday that has always been so big in the US has been hitting Canada hard the last few years as we are slowing catching up with how much people are looking to shop online. Amazon is no different. WATCH THIS PAGE for Amazon Black Friday deals and Promotions.
One of my very favorite things shopping online as a mom of many, is that the packages are delivered to my door and most often when the kids are away at school and daycare – so they don’t even see it. (wink wink)
Do you have Amazon Prime? Is it helping for you? I’d like to know your thoughts.
