Are you guys (gals?) Amazon Prime Members? If not, I wanted to tell you about this amazing deal! This weekend ONLY, you can get an Amazon Prime Membership for only $73 (regular $99). That's cheaper than I've ever paid for it (and I've been a paying member for years).
This deal will start at 6 pm CT on Friday, January 15, 2016 and will be valid until 11:59 pm local time on Sunday, January 17, 2016!
Note: IF you're not taken to the page to get it for $73, look for this gray bar at the top and click there:
Here are some of the fantastic benefits of this membership:
- Free Two-Day Shipping ($3.99 Overnight Shipping per item) on Thousands of Items!
- Amazon Prime Instant Video - Over 40,00 Free Movies & TV Shows
- Free Kindle Lending Library
- Prime Music - Over a Million Free Songs!
- Unlimited Photo Storage
I cannot tell you how invaluable this membership has been to my business and my family. It's worth every penny (and I paid $99/yr)!!
The fine print: Until Sunday, January 17th at 11:59 p.m., PT, new members can join Amazon Prime for $73 for the first year and enjoy member-only benefits and content. Although the price in your cart will show $99, the promotion discount will be applied at checkout. You will be charged when you place your order.
Here are just a few of the things I use it for:
1. Cake stuff - obviously. I live way out in the country and about 100 miles from any store that carries cake supplies (other than the craft department at Walmart). I cannot tell you how many times I've needed something (a rare cookie cutter, sprinkles, last minute cake topper, a replacement tool when mine is lost, broken, etc. ) and I've been able to get it on Amazon either next day or in 2 days!
2. Last minute gifts. I do about 90% of my gift shopping online and about 99% of that is on Amazon. I love being able to get things here quickly when I've let dates slip up on me! Free 2-Day Shipping? I use it ALL.THE.TIME. Overnight shipping for $3.99? Even better when I've forgotten a birthday!!
3. Free shows! We've watched hundreds of hours of movies and television shows on Amazon Instant Video. If it weren't for football, we'd probably cancel our satellite television and only watch Amazon! We've watched every season availalbe of 24, Flashpoint, Downton Abbey... and the kids, ohmygosh. SO many free things for them to watch: Bob the Builder, Power Rangers, Spy Kids, Dora the Explorer, Thomas the Train... so many I can't name them all!
4. Music. My older sons and my husband take advantage of all the free music on Amazon all the time! I'm not really one to sit around listening to music, but they always have something playing and being able to change it up for FREE is awesome!
5. Free Unlimited Photo Storage? What!?!?! I only learned about this today, but I'm really excited about it. For my blog and business and the zillions of pictures I take, I pay for photo storage online with Google. But if I'm reading this right and I can store them for FREE with my Amazon Prime Membership... sign me up!! That's one more reason to have (and for me to KEEP) Amazon Prime!
