So for about $5 more it is brand new and shipped 5x's faster? Understand you don't need it, but you can't say you don't see the advantage.

Is that not exactly what he said?

That pretty much is the textbook definition of it not being advantageous for him personally

not necessarily...it applies to items sold by others but fulfilled thru Amazon also. (clearly marked as Prime eligible)

I don't think you mentioned that you buy your movies used. Prime items are new only. You will be able to save money buying used over new via Prime. The only things I buy on Amazon that usually isn't Prime are used books. Can usually get a paperback in decent shape for under 50 cents.

quote:

Yeah, prime isn't good if you're into used movies or books. They pretty much only sell new items, which are going to be more expensive.

Yeah...damn. That's what I was hoping wasn't the case. With DVDs, it's so easy (and cheap) to buy used ones that are "like new" or "very good." They're all guaranteed to play, so there's really not much use in buying new ones, although I do buy those on rare occasion.

Being that I only buy other things here and there from Amazon, it looks like Prime isn't the way to go for me. Preciate all the info from everyone though,

I've been considering this lately.

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


$79/yr I think. Free 2 day shipping on Prime items and Next Day for $3.99 per item.

Also have access to the Prime streaming library and Kindle lending library.

I see no advantage for movies, with maybe a couple of exceptions. But in my example, I could get the DVD in really good condition for almost half the cost than if I used Prime. Aside from it coming faster (which is fairly negligible for me), I see no advantage.

Obviously I see an advantage on other items and in other situations, but not for mine. I'm not dogging Amazon Prime as much as realizing that it looks like it's not for me.

I thought he might have meant he would settle for used and longer delivery since the extra money didn't seem worth it. Didnt know he just did used movies.

I get though that it isn't for everyone.

Didn't know about the free Kindle book. I get any book I want for free? Also, how good is their streaming selection. I only use the Prime for the free shipping, never done it for movies.

Well, they dated for like three years IRL while on the show, so maybe that's why..

And is it a SBTB thread? I thought it was more a Lark Voorhies thread, so I didn't read it.

The Prime content is not as good as Netflix, but it's decent. You can rent/buy new releases and stream them, which is clutch.

Meh, I only go there with out of towners or after wedding receptions or something. Always a long wait at the bar.

But I will meet you at Bulldog, Avenue Pub, Monkey Hill or St Joes anytime sweet toes.

Outside of groceries or extremely rare/local items I buy everything off Prime. That service is the fvcking tits.

I can't remember the last time I bought something in person that I couldn't buy off of Prime.
