Video First it is also included with your membership. There are some original assassins, though A Stesa (to WIRING staff favorite) and I returned home, in addition to other movies and shows. Purchased separately, Prime Video costs $ 9 per month.
Finally, we would be remiss if we didn’t talk about the event just for Amazon members, First day. The annual “party” has surpassed both Black Friday and Cyber Monday in recent years, but not all Prime Day events are actually a business affair. The WIRED Gear team always covers the event to make good deals easier to find. This year, Prime Day is on June 21st and 22nd, although discounts often start earlier.
Surprised by the amount of boxes at your door? (Honestly, as a product reviewer, the same.) Amazon Day it allows you to schedule all your deliveries to arrive on a certain day of the week. Instead of dealing with a box or two at a time on multiple days, you can get a package with all your orders on that day that you prefer. If you use Amazon Day, you are not locked out. This means that if you order something you need quickly, you can always opt for the faster shipping method. Amazon Day is a great way to cut cardboard (and your carbon footprint).
Even outside of Prime Day, Amazon Prime members are eligible for specials discounts only for members. That could mean a few bucks from your portable charging purchase, a 20 percent coupon to spend on dog food, or better prices on new Amazon devices. Individual discounts vary, but we see these types of promotions quite often – and, as with Prime Day, they’re not all good.
Lightning Offers Prompt Access
Both during and outside of special events such as Prime Day and Black Friday, Prime members have early access select Lightning Offers. You can buy 30 minutes before other customers. Whether Lightning Deals are worth your money is another matter entirely, but it’s an advantage worth checking out.
If you don’t need your order to arrive right away, sometimes at checkout you see the option for Free No-Rush Shipping. Usually, choosing No-Rush shipments you will receive a $ 1 gift digital credit for use on ebooks, digital games, movies, and the like. The reward sometimes expires after a certain amount of time. I used the No-Rush credits to get as much as $ 10 in digital games on the day of the release. Since video game discounts are rare, especially right after release, this can be lucrative if you time it correctly (and you don’t mind waiting for your purchases to arrive).
Amazon Fresh it allows you to order groceries via Amazon and send them to your door. It’s not available in all areas, but it’s a different way to shop if you’re trying to avoid traveling in person. You also have a selection of products from Whole Foods available through Amazon Fresh. My mom uses Amazon Fresh to ship food to my student brother, hoping he eats at least one vegetable that isn’t in a pizza. A little confusingly, there are physicists of the same name Amazon Fresh stores in certain cities.
Then Amazon bought Whole Foods a few years ago, you could usually find choices from Whole Foods store brands in Amazon’s food services. It could be a good way to try something new or accompany the items you already like.
For families, Amazonia House it’s a good way to share benefits among many people. You can share membership benefits with two adults, four teens and four adults. Parents can use Amazon Household to approve teen orders or set up parental controls on children’s content.
Amazon First Reads
Each month, Prime members can check out Amazon First Reads. It’s two Kindle books from the selection for free. Members who are not Prime can get their two books for $ 2 each. As a reminder, you can read Kindle books even if you don’t have a Kindle device thanks to it free app available for phones and computers. We also have one buying guide to help you choose the right Kindle.
In addition to First Reads, Prime members access tons of Kindle books via First Reading. There are over a thousand items to choose from. Apart from books, you can access audiobooks and magazines, plus comics via Cumixology. WIRED senior editor Michael Calore mentioned Prime Reading as one of his quarantine saviors in this Gadget Lab podcast episode.
Each month, Prime members are eligible for various rewards via First game (formerly known as Twitch Prime). This includes the in-game button on a variety of popular games, free game downloads, free downloadable content (DLC) and expansions, and even more. You also get a free Twitch subscription – which sounds like you can watch Twitch for free, but “Sub Twitch” are actually subscriptions to individual Twitch streamers, and normally cost money. With the free subscription you get from Amazon Prime, you can support the channels you like – the creators make some money from the subscription, but it won’t cost you anything more.
$ 10 on game pre-orders
This discount was much better, but still worth looking into if you’re in the market for a new video game. Occasionally, Primary members may receive $ 10 off when they preorder a game. Eligible titles present here when available.
Buying clothes online can be a daunting process. First Wardrobe offers a selection of items you can try at home before committing. Choose what you want and get it for a week. If it’s a winner, you can keep it. If it is not a perfect measure, you can return the items for free. I prefer to use this method when the pieces are already discounted, since the price you will pay if you decide to keep something is whatever the price at the checkout.
Unlimited online photo storage
Early members get access to unlimited full-resolution photo storage, and 5 gigabytes of video storage. You can store, print, and share photos with the Amazon Photos app and support everything up to the cloud. If your account still loses Premium status, you have to pay at least $ 2 a month to store your photos and videos, then this shouldn’t be yours. primary method of safety. You may want to consider using it one of these options as well.
Amazon Kids + discount
Amazon Kids + (formerly FreeTime Unlimited) is Amazon’s content service for kids. The service is compatible with many iOS, Android and Amazon devices, as well Fire tablets. It essentially provides a set of parental controls as well by giving children access to age-appropriate shows, books, games and the like. Kids + costs $ 5 a month, but Prime members can sign up for the $ 3 a month subscription.
Additional Perks for Specific Customers
Are you waiting for a new addition to your family? Select Primary members can claim a free Baby Register welcome box creating a record that has at least $ 10 to buy (from yourself or others). Learn more here.
Select special wireless carriers phone plans for First members. Members also get 10 percent back as credit each month. These plans aren’t for everyone – and your current provider may be cheaper – but they could be a good option for those looking for a prepaid and inexpensive phone service.
