Amazon Prime is amazing. I order everything I can off there. Free 2 day shipping by itself is worth it. I hate going to stores looking for stuff and wasting time. I can find exactly what I want on Amazon and usually get it at a better price and no taxes.

add 4 or 5 of your friends and family on your account and they get free 2nd day shipping as well. no extra cost
They don't get the movies though.

Yes, just sign in to it with your prime password and tons of free music. Better than pandora, no ads and you can pick your song and play it over and over.

Same here, love it.

Just search for your product, click the "Amazon Prime" box and ignore the rest, free shipping and returns normally.

I've never used the music / movies stuff...

I am just discovering the Prime Music. It is a hell of a bonus for being a Prime member.

Prime member for 5+ years. The movies/tv and music are just added perks. It makes it too easy to buy stuff.

If you have a NEW Kindle HDX you can actually DOWNLOAD a lot of the movies and TV Shows from Prime and enjoy them at a later time. This is a fantastic feature, meaning that you can down load media content and enjoy later without needing an Internet connection. Perfect for the boat or other places where you might wanna watch a movie or TV show and the Internet is not available.

Did 4 seasons of "Justified" like this and and am currently working my way through "Alpha House" and "Deadwood" the same way. Should be noted Prime must have struck a deal with HBO as now ALL the great HBO Series such as The Sopranos, The Wire , Rome etc are all available on Prime.

Great service, WAY better then Netflix and the free shipping thing does not suck either.

Anyone know how the music selection compares to spotify? I've been paying for spotify on my phone since it came out bc I think it's the best thing since sliced bread, but if prime stacks up I will dump spotify and get prime for all the other benefits.

Yup we use Amazon a lot and have Prime. I just ordered some stuff yesterday actually. Digital pool thermometer and a wicker ice chest for the patio. It will be here Tuesday. No charge for shipping. And the ice chest is a pretty large item.

I'll check out the music thing.

Prime music offers around a million tracks (spotify has 20 million) and is missing all artists from the Universal music label. Also new music will not be added for six months to allow for digital sales. That said, I love prime and all the benefits. I don't doubt they will make prime music better with time.

I am glad this thread was started as we have had prime for quite a while, but never looked into the music and shows that are available.I had been wanting to watch the first three seasons of Justified and got a start on season one this morning.

May have been mentioned but you can share shipping benefit with up to four others. So they're acct is seperate but they use your free shipping benefit

Nope. You are limited to one stream.
