Review of Amazon Prime Program

Saturday Greetings to Everyone!

I have received several requests recently to investigate and discuss Amazon.com Amazon Prime Program. To tell you the truth, before doing a detailed investigation in to what this program offers, I didn’t think too much of it. I thought it was just another way for me to pay Amazon $80 all at once for a new program.

However, after looking over my current shopping pattern at Amazon and what the program offers, I immediately realized that I needed to sign up for this. There are two ways that I wanted to explain this program to everyone, so I’ll detail those one at a time in a moment.

First, let’s take a look at what the Amazon Prime Membership gives you.

  • Unlimited FREE 2-day shipping
  • The ability to upgrade to one-day shipping for only $3.99 for domestic US purchase destinations
  • No minimum order size.
  • You can even share your membership with someone else in your household (they just have to know your birthday).
These perks sound good right? But, you’re probably wondering how much this program costs. The normal cost of the program is $79 per year. Now, let’s break down the reasons that a person should sign up for this program.
Free Trial
1) At the very least, you should sign up for the 3 month FREE trial membership they offer. Just click on the link to take advantage of all these benefits without any risk to you. You can cancel at any time during the trial.

How Many Purchases Would I have to Make to Recover My Investment of $79?
2) As you all might have guessed, I am an avid Amazon user/buyer. You simply cannot beat the prices and the ease of finding things on the site.

So, here’s the approach I took at determining if this program is right for me. I went on the Amazon website, and in my buying history, I found that I bought 20 items in the past year on Amazon.

The total I paid for shipping for all of these items was $101. Wow!! That’s a lot more than I would have thought!

So, for me, the next thing I proceeded to do was start my free trial. I’m going to evaluate if I like it or not, and then decide to keep it after the 3 month period.

How should you proceed? I would do the following: 1) Sign up for the trial – there’s nothing to lose 2) After that, go through your Amazon account, evaluate how many items you bought over a year’s time, add up the total shipping, and see if that comes in over $79 per year.
