About this Deal
If you’re familiar with Amazon Prime, the e-commerce giant’s $129/year subscription service, you already know about its free shipping perk — namely its same-day, one-day, and two-day shipping on millions of items across the site. But there are many more Amazon Prime benefits and perks you can take advantage of right now aside from the free shipping.
For starters, Amazon Prime members get instant access to Prime Day, Amazon’s biggest shopping day of the year. Prime members get first dibs on thousands of the best Prime Day deals on electronics, home goods, fashion, entertainment and more, with extra discounts not available to anyone else.
Amazon Prime is also great for music and movie lovers too. If you’ve watched everything you’re interested in on Netflix and Hulu, there are a bunch of TV shows and movies free to stream on Prime Video. Prime Music meantime, lets you stream more than two million tracks on-demand, and Amazon offers a discount on its more fully featured Music Unlimited and Music HD services to subscribers. You can read new and classic books, magazines, and comics a-la-carte with Prime Reading too, on any computer, smartphone, tablet, or Kindle.
If you’re not a Prime subscriber, Amazon is currently offering a full 30-day free trial that’ll give you access to try out the service. Try it out for a month and if you like the perks, you can subscribe to Amazon Prime for $129.99 for the year (that’s less than $11/month, or about the price of a Netflix subscription). Students can get a free six-month trial and an annual subscription for 50% off.

1. Amazon Prime Video
Amazon has its own video streaming service called Prime Video, which competes with the likes of Netflix and Hulu. Prime members can stream a mix of original programming (Jack Ryan, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and catalogue titles (Downton Abbey, The Sopranos) on their PC, Mac, iOS, or Android, or streaming device. Computers can stream video from Amazon’s website, while mobile devices and video streaming boxes require the Amazon Prime Video app.
Prime Video’s catalogue is pretty deep, and has titles in every genre. Parents in particular should be aware of Prime Video because of Amazon’s deal with Viacom, which brought classic cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants to the service. Amazon Prime Video isn’t available as a standalone subscription, but you can test it out as part of Amazon’s 30-day free trial for Amazon Prime.
