Today I’ll be sharing 10 of my favourite benefits that I enjoy as an Amazon Prime member.
I will tell you the truth: I haven’t been always an online shopper. I love going to the stores, so I can feel, touch and try everything. But since I moved to Canada, my mindset started to change, maybe because of the convenience, life is busy now with two little ones at home, and also the winter days really make me feel like I'd rather stay at home, cozy, drinking my coffee while finding some great deals on Amazon.ca. The pandemic also contributed to make online shopping a safe and convenient way for me and for my family.
Early this year I enrolled in the Amazon Prime Membership program (you can enjoy a 30-day FREE trial) and I regret not being part of the program before. The Amazon Prime membership, which costs CDN$ 79 per year, has evolved quite a bit and the list of Amazon Prime advantages is constantly growing so that a membership is something that is always increasing in value.
So here are the 10 reasons I love my Amazon Prime membership:
1.FREE Two-day Shipping on eligible items
Need a last minute gift? Can't get out of the house? Realize you forgot to pick up something? With FREE delivery from Amazon Prime, your shopping problems are solved. You get unlimited deliveries with no minimum order size, and with millions of eligible items, the options are practically limitless.
This is one the main reasons I love Prime. I usually tend to buy things on the last minute. For instance, we had planned to go to the beach and I noticed I forgot to buy the baby’s tent, with Prime, I was able to order it just a few days before the event and it arrived on time. Prime has saved me on an occasion or two.
2. Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery
3. Prime Early Access Lightning Deals
Amazon offers limited-time “Lightning Deals” to shoppers every day, but Amazon Prime members can access them 30 minutes BEFORE everyone else. You can take advantage of the extra 30 minutes by looking for upcoming deals, and selecting the “Watch This Deal” option. If you do it in the Amazon App, you’ll get a push notification when the deal goes live, so you can snag the item before it’s available to non-Prime shoppers.
4. Stream your favourite movies and shows
Watch Amazon Originals, popular movies, TV shows, and more. Your Prime membership gives you exclusive access to watch Amazon Originals including The Grand Tour, Homecoming, and award winners The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Man in the High Castle. Enjoy instant streaming on Amazon's global video service, PrimeVideo.com. Watch on your computer or on the go with the Prime Video app, and download select titles to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
5. Listen to Amazon Music without Ads
Amazon Prime members can take advantage of Prime Music, a collection of over 2 million ad-free and on-demand songs. Prime Music includes access to non-stop music channels and curated playlists that are perfect for playing at barbecues, parties, or just as background music during your work day. Access Prime Music through your computer browser, or download the Amazon Music app on your smartphone.
6. Prime Member Read for Free
I recently learned about the Prime Reading benefit, which is available to anyone with an Amazon Prime membership. Prime members have access to thousands of free ebooks, children's books, magazines, and audiobooks through Prime Reading.
I’m an avid Audible listener, so it’s great to be able to have a collection of free audiobooks to fall back on if I’ve finished listening through my latest Audible purchase.
7. Amazon Prime Members can save 20% on diapers subscription through Amazon Family
Amazon Family is a free program for Prime members. Not only will you receive 20% off Subscribe & Save diaper subscriptions, you’ll have access to exclusive savings and offers when you create a free profile for your child. Amazon has also amazing deals for families (family coupons and family deals)
Amazon Family provides recommendations, including emails, to parents who are expecting or have children ages 5 years and younger. If you’re expecting or adopting, enter the expected arrival date here – you can always change it later.
8. FREE unlimited photo storage
Amazon Prime members can also take advantage of unlimited photo storage on their mobile devices. This is a major benefit for people who could use some extra storage space on their phones! Just upload your photos to Amazon through your browser or through the Prime Photo app, then delete them off your phone and free up that storage space.
Another cool thing about Prime Photo is that you connect up to 5 friends or family members to the same unlimited storage space, which Amazon calls a “Family Vault.” Everyone can upload their photos to a central location, making it simple to collect everyone’s snapshots from a day at the beach, a family vacation, or any other family events. You can even create and order prints, cards, and photo books too!

10. Prime Students
The last Amazon Prime membership benefit I’ll mention is the Prime Students.

Start your 6-month FREE trial!
