Amazon Prime's basic benefit to you is free two day shipping on most items in Amazon's catalog. In addition, Prime allows you to share your two day shipping benefit with up to four other people, it gives you access to Amazon's video streaming service similar to Netflix, free Kindle books, exclusive deals and a lot more.
The Prime service is one of the best subscription deals out there. By ordering from Amazon 10 times a year you could easily recoup your $79 investment. Further, as Amazon continues to make massive investments in streaming video you could also ditch your Netflix subscription which saves you over $95 a year. However, if you aren't convinced you want to spend the money, this is still the best time of year to give Amazon Prime a try. With Black Friday approaching and CyberMonday on its heals, Amazon is in a "prime" position to price match some of the best door buster deals out there and you won't even have to leave home.
