When you run your own home business you may find your time a little thin when trying to manage family life, shopping, and household errans. As your business grows your going to need to find ways to save time and money at the same time.
I came to this point myself and realized that unless I hired someone to shop for me I would be running short of required household items. On the advice of a friend I tried the free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime.
If you have never heard of Amazon Prime your not alone I hadn’t either before my friend told me about it. Here is what is so great about Amazon Prime:
1. Free 2 day shipping – The main reason I became a member was for the free 2 day unlimited shipping option. This is a great feature since many items on Amazon.com can be ordered almost for free even after including shipping since it’s free.
Now not every item is eligible on Amazon for free shipping but many are. You want to order food, clothing, office supplies, christmas gifts, etc go ahead since most have free shipping and you will get your order in 2 days.
When your short on time or if you don’t have use of a car due to repair or not having a car, no problem. The $79 year membership covers unlimited free 2 day shipping which will save you at least that much in gas your not using.
2. Free Streaming Movies – Many people don’t realize that Amazon now has over 10,000 streaming movies that are free to Prime members. When I intially started my membership there were only a few movies. Today there is a huge selection to choose from.
If your paying $9/month for Netflix’s unlimited streaming service you will entirely save this money by using the Prime membership instead. This is really a nice bonus feature og having the membership.
The Amazon Prime membership is really not only a time saver but a money saver as well. You can literally live without a car if you have this membership and there are people who do this. They have all their food bought and delivered for free from Amazon.
