I recently joined Amazon Prime. Yeah, late to the party. I hate, hate, hate paying for shipping, and couldn't rationalize paying $119 a year for shipping when I'd rather buy an item for $20 with free shipping than the same item for $17 with $3 shipping. The math may be the same, but the emotions are different.
The last time I tried Prime on a trial, the entertainment options were, at best, meh. But lately I've been missing out on some shows I wanted to watch, so I did a paradigm shift: I am paying for an entertainment subscription and getting free shipping as a bonus. Plus, apparently, some other perks.
My sister shared with me this cheat sheet of Prime benefits, and I’m sharing it with you. Free 2-hour delivery from Whole Foods? Oh, yeah, I'm in.
