We all know that Amazon Prime is pretty awesome. Not only do you get the ability to watch movies, listen to music, store photos, and even read books for free, but there are some pretty awesome hacks to take advantage of. Let’s take a closer look at some Amazon Prime hacks.
Get Your Holiday Gifts Shipped Free with the 30-Day Trial
A year-round Amazon Prime account may not be right for you. No problem. Sign up for a free 30-day trial at the beginning of December and take care of all your holiday shopping needs. Just make sure to go into your account and deselect the auto-renew option. Also, if you want Amazon Prime on your terms, you can pay by the month and get it the months you need it.
Amazon no longer honors price drops, but they will take care of you should you receive a late shipment. You can choose between a promotional credit being applied to your account or getting a free month of Amazon Prime. If you shop with Amazon a lot, you know that the Prime extension is the way to go.
Share Your Benefits
Want to share your access to Amazon’s awesome features? You can add one person to your household so that they can watch movies, read books, and enjoy the other perks that Amazon Prime has to offer without shelling out for their own membership.
Score Promo Codes
Don’t need something super quick? Amazon will reward you for choosing a slower shipping method. The bribe changes from time to time. Be sure to look at your options the next time you check out. For example, right now you can get a FREE $1 reward that you can use on select digital items (ebooks, music, videos, and apps), but it might be different when you use it.
Make Sure You’re Getting the Best Price
So Amazon claims something is on sale? But is the price REALLY good? Use the site CamelCamelCamel to see how the price on the item has fluctuated over the past few months. This will let you know whether that “awesome” sale’s price is really legit. You can also setup alerts while you’re there if you’re in the market for something. Just tell CamelCamelCamel what you want to pay, and they will let you know when the price drops below that price.
Take Advantage of Prime Membership Discounts
Last, but not least, Amazon offers a number of discounts so that more people can enjoy Prime. A couple examples include those with EBT benefits who can receive Prime at a discounted price and college students who can get 6 months free if they have an EDU email address.
Amazon Prime is awesome and it keeps getting better and better. If you want to get the most from your membership, try out some of these hacks.
