Why Get Amazon Prime?


Practical Stylish Living money saving tips

So why should you get Amazon Prime? The short answer… because of ALL the benefits that come along with the membership. The savings outweigh the cost of the membership.

My family decided to get Amazon Prime for access to online shopping with unlimited free shipping. The convenience of shopping online, having products delivered within 2 business days and free shipping is of great value to us. It saves us time and money… which is always taken into consideration when determining if a membership is best for our family.


However, there are several other benefits to having an Amazon Prime membership.

Practical Stylish Living Amazon Shopping

1. Access to the Best Online Shopping

  • Exclusive Deals and Discounts are included in an Amazon Prime membership
  • Save Big on groceries, electronics, computers, software, apparel, accessories, shoes, furnishings, lighting, toys, games, devices and anything else you can think of

Although, continue to comparison shop because some items that are available at Walmart or Sam’s Club cost less.

2. Get to Listen to Millions of Song

  • Amazon Music is included in an Amazon Prime membership
  • Listen to over 60 million songs, ad free on Amazon Music
  • Play any song, genre or artist, just ask Alexa
  • On-Demand. Unlimited Skips. Offline Playback
  • Free music streaming

Even though Amazon Music is a good service, our family uses Apple Music because our home is already setup with Apple products. However, if we didn’t have Apple products we would definitely use Amazon Music.
