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).
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.
Keep on learning!
