Amazon Prime Anyone?

We see Amazon Prime popping up all over. So many people seem to be taking advantage of it and I have never fully understood what it is, how to use it or the amazing benefits you can reap from signing up. Strange, for a self-proclaimed savvy shopper and blogger. I decided the best thing to do was to take up a little investigating, and work out just exactly it can offer and if it's worth the time and money to sign up.

In A Nutshell

Amazon Prime offers everything from groceries, music, e-books, and on the other end of the spectrum, TV shows and films! Here are the main benefits of signing up. Most of these for me are incredibly attractive, especially for those time-lacking, sometimes unmotivated individuals (like myself some days), the unlimited one-day delivery is always a big bonus, especially during those busy times in life (birthdays...xmas...)

  • Unlimited one-day delivery on your Amazon orders in the UK
  • Unlimited video streaming of 15,000 TV shows and movies through Amazon Prime Instant Video (formerly LoveFilm)
  • Access to Amazon's music library, with unlimited downloads and streams
  • Prime Photos for unlimited photo storage on Amazon Cloud Drive. You also get 5GB of cloud storage for other types of files.
  • Access to 800,000 free e-books
  • Borrow one of over 500,000 titles per month for free on any Kindle device
  • 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals - including Prime Day

The cost of the subscription is £79 a year. Is it worth it? It probably all depends on how often you shop, what you like to shop for, and how much of a techy you are...for example, I would never choose to delve into the world of Amazon Cloud Drive, I'm still figuring out iCloud (yes hilarious I know). For avid kindle users, it may be quite beneficial but the good part is, Amazon do offer a 30 day free trial. If you feel it's for you, you don't need to do anything, they'll start your subscription after the month but if you do want to cancel, make sure you do before the 30 days to avoid being charged.

Sounds like it is the perfect subscription for you? If you need to contact them or take a look in more depth, all the information, and small print and all things Amazon Prime then click here on
