What is Amazon Prime?
If you are a member of Amazon Prime you can get Free 2 Day Shipping on Any Order! I debated for a long time on whether or not it was worth it to sign up for Amazon Prime. But after I did, I decided quickly it was definitely worth it. It gives you Amazon Family for free, free songs and movies, and tons more. I use it often and feel it is worth the yearly cost.

Amazon items are tax free in 45 states so the savings will add up! There is an annual membership fee of $99 OR $10.99 a month.
