Reasons To Get Amazon Prime + How to Get it FREE (1)

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.

If you are a member of Amazon Prime, you get Free 2 Day Shipping on any order (No Minimum), or upgrade to One Day Shipping for just $3.99 per item.  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. Eligible customers can try out a membership by starting a Free Amazon Prime Trial.

Top 15 Reasons To Get Amazon Prime:


  • FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items! When shipping to select metro areas, Prime members also get FREE Same-Day Delivery on over a million items and FREE 2-hour delivery with Prime Now on daily essentials and groceries. With FREE release-date delivery on eligible pre-order items, you can enjoy highly anticipated books, movies, and video games as soon as possible.

3 ways to try Amazon Prime for free:


What is Amazon Family?

Amazon Family is a free program where you save 20% when you use the Subscribe and Save feature on all purchases (read below on how to use Subscribe & Save). Plus you get 2 day shipping on ALL purchases sold directly from Amazon – not just baby items.  If you are a mom, dad, or caregiver, you can sign up for Amazon Family for free for the first 3 months!  If you have Amazon Prime, you get Amazon Family for free, but you do have to click to the Amazon Family page and signup still.

Important: Make sure that after your 3 months is up you let them know if you want to cancel so you don’t get charged!


What is Amazon Student?

If you have an email address that includes an @edu then you can get FREE Amazon Prime 2-day shipping with an Amazon Student Account – FREE for the first 6 months.  Then you get 50% off Amazon Prime after that.

Did you know that you don’t need any credit card to sign up for Delta SkyMiles?!?!? I thought you did so I had never signed up. Well my mother-in-law just told me you can sign up FREE and get rewards, no credit card sign-up required. Score!

Any other free airline rewards programs out there? NO credit card sign up required (I am anti-credit cards because I forget to pay them on time. They just aren’t for me. I’m a cash girl!)

So you get airline miles for every flight you book!  You don’t get rewards for any other purchases other then airline miles, from my understanding.

Note: The +1 button and recommend only show up when you go to the post, not on my homepage or in google reader.  I wish I could figure out how to get them on my homepage…

First I want to say thanks for clicking the “Recommend” button on my posts!  By clicking the “Recommend” button, more people get to see my deals and I get new readers, that is something every bloggers loves!

If you click the +1 button right above the “Recommend” button (I put a green arrow pointing to it in the picture above) it improves that posts search engine rankings in Google!   I thought I would point it out in case you didn’t know what it was.

I’m not saying you have to click on it, but I am very thankful for all who do click on it on any post on my site!   Cuckoo for Coupon Deals wouldn’t be so awesome without all of you and your support.  I love the emails I get, and I love reading your deals you score on my weekly Coupon Insert giveaway post. You all share so many great deals that help others out and we all appreciate it on my facebook page. Thanks!
