How great is Amazon Prime?


The mechanism in one of my toilet tanks is leaking. Was about to go to Lowes but figured I'd check amazon. $10 for full tank mechanism replacement kit with Amazon Prime shipping(same kit was $12 at Lowes). Ordered at 11 AM, got email at 2 PM that my item shipped and is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.

In a country full of shitty retail companies, Amazon is the 800 lb gorilla with a chainsaw as a penis.

I know, cool story bro.

I'd have paid the extra $2 to fix my toilet the same day

Prime is pretty awesome but I have found more "Prime Eligible" products being overpriced to cover the expense of cheap express shipping.

Having to set foot in Lowes sets off my agoraphobia so I'm willing to wait a day.

And my house has 5 toilets so I've got 4 others to play with.

How does one go about getting an Amazon Prime membership?

They use to offer free trials. Not sure anymore. But the service is $80 for the year and is well worth it if you purchase from Amazon a lot.

I buy as much as possible with Prime. It's extraordinary.

If you still have a .edu email address active, it is free. After that $40 a year, well worth it.

I do as much of my shopping as possible via Amazon Prime.

Student Prime FTMFW


ETA: Pretty solid that they include a ton of free streaming TV shows and movies as well. It's not as much free content as Netflix, but I find the HD selections to stream at a higher quality.

This is true. I had Prime free for a year for being a student, and used it all the time. Did all my Christmas shopping online. I prefer shopping online for anything I can manage to do it for.

But I did notice that Prime items were often pricier than the same items by different Amazon sellers.

If you don't want to wait for the 3-5 days on other items, though, it's awesome.

Not only prime, but that would be a big hit to amazon in general.

I've been considering this lately.

How much is it, and what exactly are the benefits..?

Amazon Prime is getting less awesome.

More products are showing up as "add-on items" requiring $25 for free shipping, even with Prime.
