Why This Busy Mom Loves Amazon Prime & How to Get It Discounted

I was reluctant to become an Amazon shopper for years, and now, I can't imagine life without it. More than anything else, I use it to keep us stocked with necessities like toilet paper, tissues, and laundry detergent. It may not always be the cheapest option, but there is enormous value in knowing we have those things stocked, and I don't have to worry about them.

5 Reasons I Love Amazon Prime

1. Never running out of necessities

Subscribe & Save has indeed been a lifesaver for me. It means never running out of essential items like soap and toothpaste. I use Subscribe & Save for most of our household goods. You get a discount for subscribing, but more importantly, we don't run out of the things we need when I'm too busy to go to the store. However, if I still need something that I didn't subscribe to, I can order it through Amazon Prime and have it two days with no extra shipping cost.

2. Saves me time and keeps me on budget

I cannot imagine Christmas shopping without Amazon Prime. It helps me stick to my list instead of getting distracted by things in the stores I don't need. Once I have a good list, I can get all of my Christmas shopping for my three kids done in less than an hour.  That's right - I said less than an hour! I go online, search, and add the items to the cart.

3. Last-minute gifts

Have you ever gotten a last-minute birthday invitation that was stuck at the bottom of your child's bookbag? Well, I have. When one of my kids has a birthday party coming up this weekend, I can pop online and order something and have it well before the party. Not only that, with Amazon Prime, I receive the gift in just two days with free shipping.

4. New books to read every month

I'm an avid reader, and my Amazon Prime membership gives me access to the Kindle Owners Lending Library. Every month I can choose something new from the library at no cost. I have had the opportunity to get to know authors I love and never would have found otherwise.

5. Streaming movies and TV shows

Amazon Instant Video comes with the Prime membership as well. It gives me access to tons of free movies and tv shows. When my youngest was a toddler, he couldn't get enough of one of the Amazon original shows called Creative Galaxy. You get access to all of the Amazon Original Series with Prime.

That's not your only option, though! 

For customers who have an EBT or Medicaid card, Amazon Prime is only $5.99/mo. (That's almost 50% off the monthly fee!)

If you're a student, you can get a free 6-month trial of Amazon Prime. That's right - not just one month, six months!
