It was a long time before we broke down and got an Amazon Prime membership.  Jon actually signed up to help save his grandparents a few bucks when he was build a computer for them a few years ago.  We decided to keep it because of some the added benefits of having a membership.  Today, Prime Day, is just one of many of those benefits.  Let me tell you more of what we like as well as give you a run down of some of the deals I've found so far.

One of our biggest draws to Amazon Prime is not the FREE two-day shipping or even the FREE same-day or one-day delivery, it was mainly the amazing shows on Amazon Video.  The main show in particular was The Grand Tour with Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond.  Since then, I have found some great new shows as well as some older ones all available on Amazon Video.  Not everything in their video library is available with your membership, but can be either rented or purchased.

Along with the free shipping and amazing shows, we used Amazon Pantry when we went to Walt Disney World in April 2017.  We loved this because we were flying and not getting a rental car while down there.  Several days before our arrival, Jon and I went through Amazon Pantry and placed an order for several items that helped us saved money while in the parks.  We had drinks and snacks delivered and waiting for us at to our Disney resort and had plenty leftover that we were able to spread a little Disney magic to fellow guests when we were leaving.  We highly recommend using this service and hopefully Amazon Fresh will be available in the Orlando area soon so that you can get more fresh items for your stay.  Look for a more detailed post about this in the near future.

Just in the past few months, I have learned that you can also stream music with NO commercials through Amazon Music.  Just like with Amazon Video not everything is available to stream with just Amazon Prime, but if you want to spend more you can enjoy being able to stream all of the music that Amazon has available in its library.

I know the biggest draw for most people is just the convenience of being able to purchase almost anything at any time of the day and not have to leave your house.  I know that my step-mom and sometimes mother-in-law uses Amazon to purchase gifts and have them sent directly to our house.  While it is so easy to purchase items, we try to not use it unless it's the best deal out there or is the only place we can find it.  Just be mindful when purchasing to make wise choices.
