With the Holiday Season among us, we are all looking for the best places to shop for the best gifts. The Mouse For Less recommends Amazon for its variety of Disney gifts available, the ease of shopping and ease of delivering the gifts. If you shop online at Amazon, Amazon Prime offers many benefits to Amazon shoppers.
What is Amazon Prime?
Amazon Prime is a paid membership program ($99 per year plus a free 30-day trial) that gives Amazon customers the ability to purchase merchandise marked Prime eligible and have it delivered in one or two days without cost. This is especially valuable during the holiday seasons when shipping a gift is sometimes more expensive than the gifts themselves.
Benefits of Amazon Prime
While the main benefits of Amazon Prime is still the ability to get free shipping on over 30 million items on Amazon, this is no longer the only benefits of Amazon Prime. With Prime, you now also get the following benefits:
- Instant access to tens of thousands of movies and TV shows.
- Unlimited, ad-free access to more than two million songs and thousands of playlists and stations.
- Stream audiobooks from Audible.
- Ad-free viewing on Twitch for gamers.
- Borrow a Kindle e-book per month for free.
- Prime Day access to more than 100,000 exclusive deals.
- Amazon Prime Now
Prime members can shop for groceries and household products in everyday package sizes with Prime Pantry. Prime Pantry allows Amazon to expand its selection and offer thousands of items to Prime Members that are cost prohibitive to ship for free individually.
Prime Pantry provides vast selection, exclusive savings, and convenience. You can purchase groceries and household items in everyday sizes, as opposed to bulk sizes, online or using the Amazon.com mobile apps, and have these items delivered to your doorstep, saving you a trip to the store and giving you some time back in your busy life. Prime Pantry also provides great value with Weekly Deals and Coupons.
Amazon Prime Now is a benefit of Amazon Prime where members can place orders for fast same-day delivery for more than 10,000 items in select zip codes. For faster delivery, you can even get one-hour delivery for around $8. Although Amazon Prime Now and Amazon.com are related, Amazon Prime Now is a standalone site and mobile application. You can download this free app on Amazon – Amazon Prime Now
This is a great service and is used not only for grocery items, but also for media, electronics, household products, apparel, personal care and toys. This is a perfect option if you don’t have the time to go to the store to get that needed gift to bring to a party, or if you just don’t want to fight the traffic at the mall.
Unlike other Amazon deliveries, it is customary to tip the Prim Now. Prime Now is a service just like any other timely delivery service, and the Prime Now app allows you to decide how much tip to lave.
