I will admit that I am addicted to Amazon. Even when I’m not ordering my freebies or using coupon codes, I’m still shopping on there quite a bit. Of course, I have Prime so that I get free and fast shipping. There are other perks included like music, photo storage, and their video service. You can also add family and friends to your account so you can share these benefits, and maybe even the cost.
If you’re concerned about spending the extra $12.99 a month, you may be able to get it at a reduced rate. If you are a student, see if you qualify to pay $6.49. Only $5.99 a month, if you are an EBT/Medicaid recipient. If you want to skip paying for Prime altogether, keep your qualifying purchases over $25 each, and you’ll get free shipping.
