The Benefits of an Amazon Prime Membership
Chances are that you are probably already aware of the Free 2-day shipping that Amazon offers to its Prime members. That benefit alone of an Kindle Unlimited membership.
However, there are a few things you may not be aware of that an Amazon Prime Membership gets you! Here are about nine benefits that Amazon Prime offers!

1). You Can Share It!
Did you know that two adults can share Amazon Prime. No need for two memberships. The cool thing about this, is that my husband and I both share his membership. This is obvious because we are married. But Amazon Prime allows up to 2 adults, 4 teens to shop within in parental controls and you can even add children under 12 for kindle books and sharing. Which brings me to #2 and another obvious choice but I will mention it since some tend to forget about it.
As an Amazon Prime member you get one free book a month! This included books that are published by larger companies and you get access to them 1 month before they are actually released! How cool is that?! You get a choice between six different books all chosen by the editors at Amazon. They also provide a note as to why they chose it.
3). Borrow Books
So with Amazon Prime Reading you can borrow up to 10 books with no end due date. You have a limited section of books that you can choose from. And if you get Kindle Unlimited (for additional fee) you already aware of this kind of service. But even if you don’t opt for the Kindle Unlimited, then Prime Reading is already something you have access to with your Prime Amazon Prime member
4). Prime Photos
So Amazon Prime lets you store unlimited amounts of photos on their cloud. If you have the Prime photos app it will automatically store them there for you. How cool is that? I just heard of this one myself and have been a Prime member for at least 5 years. They even have an “on this day” feature similar to Facebook and a way to break the photos into albums. Sweet!
So many photos have been taken and deleted due to lack of space on my phone. I know, I should better manage. You can bet that I am checking into this perk just as soon as I finish this list.
5). Audible Channels
I love the audible app. In fact, when I was working 9 to 5 at a desk job, I relied on audible to get me through my work day. I can’t even begin to tell you the countless amount of hours I spent listening to ebooks including Dave Ramsey’s books, Rachel Cruze, Ruth Soukup, Christy Wright, Crystal Paine and so many more. With your Amazon Prime membership you get access to 6 different monthly audible channels free. This in itself is over a $60 savings!
6). Prime Wardrobe!
Forget other memberships you pay monthly for in addition to the cost of the clothes. With Prime Wardrobe you select 3-8 items. When they arrive you try them on at home, and keep and pay for the ones you want. You return the ones you do not want in a resealable bag, and prepaid free return shipping label. Its super easy! I haven’t tried this service yet, but I am excited to. In fact, as I write this I am selecting some items to try out! Just love my Prime.
7). Alexa Voice Shopping
This is pretty amazing. If you have Alexa you can just tell her to add items to your shopping list. And you can tell her to go ahead and re order or order the items you need. And Alexa will let you know when you items are at your door.
8). Prime Deals & Discounts
This is a no brainer and was sort of mentioned earlier but it is worth mentioning again so to speak. As a Prime member you get access to purchase items ahead of time at a discount. You also get access to coupons on thing like Prime Pantry, Whole Foods, and Prime Video.
9). Prime Rewards
This is pretty amazing. If you choose to sign up with Amazon store card you can earn up to 5% cash back on all Amazon purchases and 2% back on restaurants and gas stations and drug stores. All other purchases get 1% cash back. Plus at the time of signing up, you might also be offered a $50-$75 credit on your Amazon purchases!
So if you already don’t have a Prime membership I would hope by now you are ready to sign up to get one.
I love sharing amazing deals alone on Amazon however these added benefits make it even more worth it. I even shared all of my favorite Amazon Prime day deals, and while some are no longer on a deep discount, you might find some are still really great deals!
And I love sharing about all the great finds I see on Amazon for home decor which you can check out my latest Buffalo Check Home Decor finds here!
