With Christmas coming, Amazon Prime can come in extremely helpful and save you a lot of money on shipping fees. Amazon Prime offers two-day shipping on thousands of items they sell…but often times, one doesn’t have the $79 to spend on the yearly membership.
The catch on invitees is that they don’t receive these benefits (only primary account holder receives these) free:
- Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video
- A Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library
Invitees do receive:
- FREE two-day shipping on millions of items
- No minimum order size
The way to save on the membership is to have each invitee pay his/her share. Simply divide the $79 by 5 This ends up being $15.80 per person. Of course, the primary account owner may want to give a discount to their invitees since they won’t qualify for all the benefits not being the primary account holder.
Don’t forget there’s a membership option just for students. Amazon Student offers 6-mos. FREE and then half (1/2) off the membership.
Amazon Student includes:
- FREE Two-day shipping on millions of items
- Deals and promotions – exclusively for students
- Limited time offer where you can earn a $10 credit when you refer a friend
- Unlimited Instant Streaming of movies and TV episodes
- Borrow Free Kindle books
