Snow Day! Dead Ahead!

 I have been an Amazon.com shopper since I first began using the Internet in 1997.  I love Amazon.com because I can find nearly ANYTHING I could possibly be shopping for in one store.  That in itself is simply amazing.  Then, in 2005 when Amazon.com sent me an email inviting me to try out their brand new program called Amazon Prime.  They gave me a free trial and then the rate was $79 to keep being an Amazon Prime member

 Since I had happily shopped at Amazon for years, I decided to give it a try.  As you know, many times, the cost of shipping can make you change your mind about purchasing certain items online. 

What I found was the Amazon Prime gave me virtually an All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet of items that could be shipped two-day for FREE.  According to Amazon there were more than a million items that qualified for this.  I could opt to upgrade to one-day (overnight) shipping for $3.99 per item.  There were no minimum purchases required.  I could also share my membership with up to 4 family members living in the same household.  I was thrilled!      

I really liked the members-only 1-Click buttons to make purchases quick and easy knowing if it was an Amazon Prime item it would ship 2-day for FREE.  Once you find an item and use your 1-Click button to purchase it, you have an additional 90 minutes to continue 1-Click shopping and it all be put into one order.  For those who prefer not to use the 1-Click button, you can always use the traditional shopping cart.  The eligible Amazon Prime items are still recognized for the free 2-day shipping or you have the option of the 1-day upgrade for $3.99 per item.

Membership is set up to automatically renew annually.  You can cancel at any time. 

It takes me no time at all to recoop my $79 investment.  I have purchased tons of different items from books, music, furniture, clothing, jewelery, toys, physical therapy equipment for my children, to very nice electronics.  My very favorite Amazon Prime purchase was our Sylvania 6842PE 42-Inch Flat Panel Plasma TV December of 2006.  I had read the reviews which were great except for the shipping.  Amazon was running a super special and the tv was over 50% off and it was an Amazon Prime item which meant free shipping.  I had read that shipping ran over $200.  Amazon was also giving a free wall mount with purchase up to $100 too.  How cool was that? I decided this would be our family Christmas present.  I was looking at flat panels but never dreamed I could afford a 42 inch.  The price of this was not much more than a 20″!

Now Amazon offers groceries.  They have tons of special deals and most items are Amazon Prime items.  I have bought quite a few groceries as well.  You cannot beat Amazon.com.  I am very happy with Amazon.com and their Amazon Prime.  I cannot say enough nice things about it.  What can I say….I love to shop and I love Amazon Prime! You should give it a try…it is well worth the money if you order several times.
