Is The Amazon Prime Membership Worth It? Amazon Family Amazon Student Amazon Baby Registry
I am a huge Amazon shopper. It is hard not to be, they sell nearly everything you could imagine. Everyone knows about Amazon, especially if you have been following me. Even if you are a new follower, you most likely have had a post or two from me cross your view about a great deal on Amazon.
You may have noticed a few posts from me promoting Amazon Prime. I personally have been an Amazon Prime member since they launched in Canada back in 2013. I honestly can’t say enough good things about my shopping experience on Amazon, their customer service, and Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime in Canada is a yearly subscription based service. You pay $79 CAD annually for the Prime membership on Amazon.ca. That works out to less than $10 per month.
If you are in the US and shop on Amazon.com they also offer Prime for $10.99 USD per month.
Benefits Of An Amazon Prime Membership
FREE Shipping With Amazon Prime
As an Amazon Prime member you will enjoy free two-day shipping, free same-day or one-day delivery to select areas. Your membership includes unlimited deliveries with no minimum order size. This means you can check out faster for limited time deals without having to reach the $35 minimum threshold for free shipping for non-Prime members.
FREE Unlimited Photo Storage
If there is one thing I have an abundance of it is photos. With your Amazon Prime membership your cherished memories are safe in Amazon Drive and accessible anywhere you are. You can access it at any time, no matter what device you use. It’s as easy as saving it once and seeing it everywhere!
Early Access To Lightning Deals
If you are a member of my Facebook group where I post insane Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and year round deals you have witnessed how fast some lightning deals go. With your Amazon Prime membership you can now be among the first to snag those hot deals. Prime members get access to lightning deals 30 minutes before other customers can access them.
Amazon Family Discount
If you have are expecting or have little ones in your home you will appreciate the Amazon Family benefit of your membership. Amazon Prime members get 20% off diapers and additional benefits compliments of Amazon Family. This discount when paired with a subscribe and save option makes Amazon the cheapest place to get diapers, other than the one-off clearance! You can cancel subscribe and save subscriptions as soon as your package ships. There are also special Amazon Family coupons and deals too!
As an Amazon Prime member you will enjoy an additional 20% off the price, sale or regular, on AmazonBasics products. I personally love their batteries, Apple certified lightning to USB cables to charge my iPhone, and so much more. I recently purchased an AmazonBasics tripod for my camera and couldn’t be happier with the purchase or price!
Amazon Prime Day
Prime Day is held for one day only. It is an amazing shopping event exclusively for Prime members. With thousands of amazing deals, Prime members get exclusive access to the biggest discounts on things they need across nearly every product category. You can bet I will be pumping out those Prime Day deals in my Facebook group.

So is Amazon Prime worth it?
In my opinion, a big fat yes! It is amazing to have things delivered to my door absolutely free, within a day or two, sometimes same-day depending on the item, even on weekends. The benefits are endless and I have yet to come across one downside. The membership fee more than pays for itself and any member will tell you that.
